Hot Topic in the Summertime
POSTED ON August 10

It’s no secret that we love dogs at Shepherd Data Services. The dog days of summer, however, are another matter. Time seems to move more slowly this time of year, with so many colleagues still on vacation.

These slower days are an ideal time to expand your professional horizons. On August 13th, Minneapolis-St. Paul Women in eDiscovery (WiE) will present a moderated roundtable titled “Unlocking the Mystery of Project Management Tools.” The program will feature project management experts from corporate, law firm, and vendor environments, all sharing their insights and expertise on how and when to use these helpful—if mysterious—tools. You will also learn what other members of the legal community are doing with project management, and how their experiences and practices may help you.

Members of the roundtable include Jenifer Melby, Director of eDiscovery and Litigation Support at Bowman and Brooke LLP; Trisha Smith, Senior eDiscovery Project Manager for UnitedHealth Group; and Shepherd Data’s own Director of Consulting Services, Ben Legatt. We know that the discussion will be engaging and helpful to anyone who manages a project–in other words–all of us.

Membership in WIE is free for women interested in eDiscovery. To become a member, please register at (http://www.womeninediscovery.org/).  Once registered as a member, you can attend WIE’s meetings at no charge.

To register for this week’s roundtable at the offices of Robins Kaplan LLP, 800 La Salle Avenue, Minneapolis, please RSVP by e-mail (mpls-stp@womeninediscovery.org) no later than Tuesday, August 11.  The program will run from 12:00 to 1:00 PM. Shepherd Data Services will provide lunch.

This event offers a fantastic overview of project management tools and, after all, who doesn’t love to have a mystery unlocked.  See you there!
