Lessons Learned from CLM Implementation:

Land and expand: There are a lot of stakeholders with different points of view and priorities. Don’t try to do an end-to-end roll out managing every contract type and pleasing all stakeholders at once. Instead, consider the ‘land and expand’ strategy where you focus on one group and roll something out there.

Clean up your own house: Tech isn’t going to solve everything, so do the work to get ready for the tech. This means template harmonization, unify processes, terminology, taxonomy, etc.

Focus on adoption: The most important piece for tech project success is adoption. At Google, we had two very simple, but important guiding principles to ensure maximum adoption
1. It has to be markedly easier and better than the old way
2. If it requires training, it’s dead. You need your new tool to be as intuitive as possible. Here, we call that ‘walk-up usable.’ Adoption is key because the real value of CLM is data. If there’s no adoption, there’s no data.
