3 PROGRAM LAWYERS MANAGEMENT PROGRAM (LMP) Introducing the LMP The global market for legal services is undergoing a period of unprecented change. The recent economic turmoil, coming as it does after a period of sustained growth, has brought many of the challenges of delivering legal services into sharp focus. As Warren Buffet famously noted, you only find out who is swimming naked when the tide goes out. While we are only starting to understand what this means in practice, all we can certain of is that the future of legal services will be very different to the past. Now in its 5 th successful year, IE s Lawyers Management Program is the only global program designed to better equip lawyers be they within legal departments or law firms with the knowledge and skills they require in this ever-changing environment. The LMP journey Against this background, lawyers are having to review their approach to both their internal management and leadership style: exploring better ways of doing business. The starting point is a clear understanding of the impact which the changing external environment is having upon the legal market as a whole and on their own services in particular. Market change of course brings opportunities as well as threats: the challenge is to understand both and know how to act accordingly. Analysing and highlighting how your organisation can work better is the important first step, but building a platform for change and leading a group of individuals along that path is often the bigger challenge. While the technical skills of a lawyer have always been prized within organisations, today more than ever, lawyers need also to be both good managers and, ideally, great leaders-which for many means acquiring new knowledge and skills. We will not survive in the current period of change by simply being better lawyers, we also have to be much better leaders and managers. Louise Pentland, Executive Vice President, Legal and Intellectual Property, Nokia The LMP gave me the tools to understand and then start to change the approach of my legal team - I really recommend it to all lawyers who have management and leadership responsibilities.
