Taking it back to basics, and incorporating the following 5 steps, will ensure that you have a Client Planning process that improves your long-term client relationships and drives revenue growth:

Five Steps to Achieving Objectives

Ray Oldfield | 24 February 2017

Objectives, Best Practice

Read More

At ObjectiveManager we know that while setting objectives can be hard, actually achieving them is the real challenge.

We’ve all worked in law firms and understand that when you’re short on time, doing things right now often trumps doing things right. But if you aren’t heading in the right direction, it doesn’t matter how fast you’re moving.

  • First, objectives are a necessity, not a luxury. For a firm to succeed there has to be a clear strategic plan in place, which includes its people achieving their personal objectives.
  • Second, working towards your objectives will make you more efficient because objectives are there to keep you focused on the right things and avoid distractions.
Here are five steps to help you achieve your objectives.

If you don’t know where you’re going, how do you know when you’ve got there? And, more importantly, how do you know what difference your work has made to the firm?
