Happy New Year and welcome to 2015!
As one year ends and a new one begins it’s an excellent time to take stock of our lives. Traditionally, the turn of a new year is accompanied by reflections on past accomplishments and resolutions and goals for the coming year and beyond. What is it that you are committed to achieving in 2015? Whether your personal resolution is to spend more time with family, learn how to cook or get to the gym more, we all have resolutions we want to focus on and goals that we want to achieve.
This rings true for our professional lives, as well. We recently had a chance to hear from 12 litigation professionals on what their 2015 professional resolutions are in the field of ediscovery. From better data preservation to a heavier use of predictive coding, these professionals have resolutions spanning the entire EDRM.
