Speed WinsSpeed is a huge competitive advantage for you.

Most people underestimate the value of speed in relation to business strategy.  People who can act and react quickly will almost always be more successful than people who vacillate and suffer over every minor detail.

There are three specific areas of law firm marketing and business strategy where speed is a tremendous competitive advantage.

Speed of Decision Making

The ability to make good decisions quickly is a hallmark of exceptional leadership.  This is partially developed through experience and partially developed through the discipline and focus on the facts of each situation.

The speed at which you assess, evaluate and act upon the information available can be the difference between success and failure.

Speed of Implementation

Good ideas are valuable.  Good ideas successfully implemented are exceptional. Good ideas successfully implemented quickly can disrupt entire industries.

Your ability to put good ideas into action will make or break your business.

Speed of Innovation

Your ability to come up with new/creative ideas to solve traditional problems will help you differentiate yourself from everyone else who does what you do.  As you come up with these new ideas, people will imitate you. You must innovate faster than people imitate.

Similar to speed of implementation, speed of innovation can allow you to transform your entire industry.

Your focus, your obsession, on speed in these three areas will pay huge dividends.  But you must build your firm with an emphasis on it. This means:

  • You hire people who are comfortable thinking and acting quickly.
  • You compensate people based upon the quality and speed of their actions.
  • You recognize your own ability to improve your speed in each of these areas.

This is generally only a focus for people who are at the top of their game. The average business owner (and the average lawyer) does not know how to even begin to improve his speed.  That’s where I can help.  If you are looking to make speed a competitive advantage, you must apply to my private client experience.  That one-on-one relationship directly with me can transform the way you do business and the clients you attract.
