You want to be able to open this [CLM] up to every single user in your organization, give them the keys, [while] you set the guardrails and rules in the backend and let them go with it.

Legacy CLM is not being used to its full potential. Unless your current CLM is built with two main goals:

1. The contract in mind

2. The business process behind it

– you’re not going to get the end result you’re looking for. The solution? A three-step framework to understand your business holistically and solve the business processes that slow contracts down, getting to the root of the issues and solving them.

Lessons Learned:

The Problem of CLM: The first step is admitting your legacy CLM doesn’t meet your needs anymore. Technology, on its own, can’t solve your problems. Using it, understanding it, creating processes with it, and connecting it to the rest of your business take good technology and make it great technology.

Shifting the Mindset: Modern business technology and processes need to move quickly and adapt seamlessly – including legal. Consider what you needed your CLM to do three years ago and what you need it to do now – is it the same?

Making the Leap: How and where do you start transforming your contracting process? Look at your current system and start thinking about if it meets your current customization needs, does it continue to innovate with technology expectations, and are the stakeholders happy with their user experience?
