eDisovery Reviews used for potential Corporate Manslaughter case?

A rather interesting report by Bloomberg, BP Executives may be charged with manslaughter from the Gulf Oil Spill.  According to Bloomberg,  “investigators are scrutinizing e-mails and other documents to determine what BP officials and the company’s drilling partners knew when they testified before Congress.”  Document discovery is not new but since Enron we’re hearing more and more… Read More ›

When Does a Case Become a Project

I have been struggling with this question lately. What is the real difference between a Case and a Project?

Watson, Go Away. We don’t need you.

Recently I had saw a strange slide put up on the wall.  It simply said “Over the Hill”.  It’s intent was not to look out a year or two into the future but to look ten years out.  I thought hey what a great idea.  Then I had a flash back to one of those… Read More ›

Lost Knowledge – DM Partner’s Essence

I had the incredible fortune last month to find myself in the hearts of two very different ancient civilizations.  I hinted in a previous article to my trip to Acropolis of Athens, the very birth place of Western Thought.  A planned trip with all the expected turns and a few surprises.  My second journey found me climbing… Read More ›
