Navigated by our team of experienced problem solvers with deep industry and functional expertise, Mountaintop’s Strategic Plan Ascent for Corporate Legal Departments helps in-house legal teams develop customized strategic plans that are aligned in measurable ways with business initiatives to create a competitive advantage for the Company and empowers them to enhance their role from just a legal function to a business strategist and partner.
Each Strategic Plan for Corporate Legal Departments is a bespoke process that will be customized to suit your corporate Legal Department’s needs and, if so desired, easily incorporated into your department and team retreat. Mountaintop will handle the research, analysis, planning, and facilitation of your Strategic Plan. We will need your team’s input regarding key background information and to participate in working sessions to help evaluate solutions. Upon the presentation of your final, written Strategic Plan, we will wrap up this Ascent with a presentation of our Becoming a Trusted Business Advisor Training Ascent to support the team’s implementation and ongoing success of your strategic planning efforts. This interactive training is conducted in a 90 to 120-minute format and incorporates a formal presentation, group discussion, and interactive group exercises. We train attorneys to go beyond great lawyering by adopting a commercial mindset and thinking like strategic, solution-oriented business advisors, and give your team the skills and confidence they need to become effective team members and enhance performance.
