Quinn and Adams Article in the ACC Docket

The December 2007 issue of the ACC Docket, the magazine of the Association of Corporate Counsel, contains the article “Transitioning Your Contract Process from the Artistic to the Industrial,” by Brian Quinn and yours truly. It provides an overview of issues that companies face in controlling the contract process and discusses some useful tools that have become available. I think it’s pretty nifty, but then I’m biased.

Brian is associate general counsel with Scientific Atlanta, a Cisco Systems company. I met him at my West Legalworks seminar in New York earlier this year. See the good things that can happen if you attend my seminars!

Incidentally, I’m always intrigued to see what publications do to the titles of my articles. Among the changes in this instance, “artisanal” became “artistic,” a rather different proposition.
