Looking for high tech office products? Consider your technology carefully.

High tech offers high productivity and efficiency, but carries with it transition, management and breakdown/backup costs. Carefully plan what best suits your needs, how often you want to upgrade, when to do this next, what level of professional help you want and how training needs should be covered.

Remember, not planning is not choosing. During the planning phase, research your choices. For some thoughtful discussion on choices of technology, consider Adriana Linares' Law Tech Partners' resources guide or the American Bar Association's Legal Technology Resource Center.

Schedule your plan and make sure it really happens the way you envision it!
