What Does an E-Discovery Project Look Like?

Burney_brett1As a lawyer, do you find the concept of project management as alien to your practice and education as the notion of providing your own IT support? In a follow-up to his LTN article, "Right-Thinking in E-Discovery Project Managment," Brett Burney trains his focus on what an e-discovery project looks like to breed a little more familiarity with the process.

As a point of departure, he looks at the Electronic Discovery Reference Model group's Project Management Framework for a broad outline of the logistics necessary to navigate each categorical task in the EDRM.

If you're still in the weeds, he suggests tools that break down the broad framework into more manageable tasks, honing in on tools that are specifically focused on managing e-discovery projects, including Framework from Wave Software, Project Matrix and PHIGRID from eClaris, and Exterro Discovery Workflow. "The goal of all of these products is to give you a standard platform to manage Fingerprint400your e-discovery projects and reuse workflows that have been tried and are true," writes Burney.

But remember that the best framework and the most tried-and-true platform fall down without proper communication and documentation. For the full picture, read "Anatomy of an E-Discovery Project."
