David Maister is hosting Blawg Review #76 next at his extraordinary business blog, Passion, People and Principles. You can find out more about David Maister at his website.
David Maister has made quite an impression on the legal blogosphere with his business blog, Passion, People and Principles. Maister is widely acknowledged as one of the world’s leading authorities on the management of professional service firms. He began his teaching career at the University of British Columbia, Canada, and then joined the Harvard Business School faculty, where he taught courses in managing service businesses from 1979 until 1985.
For twenty-five years he has advised firms in a broad spectrum of professions, covering all strategic and managerial issues, building a global practice that finds him spending about 40% of his time in North America, 30% in western Europe, and 30% in the rest of the world. Before heading off to Copenhagen to speak at a conference, David Maister will host Blawg Review #76. That'll be our segue from a month of special issues of Blawg Review for "back to school" hosted by academics to the next group of practising attorneys, who are getting us back to business.
David Maister posted a call for submissions and recommendations for his Blawg Review #76, indicating the special focus of his upcoming special issue.
I am a business and management type and NOT a lawyer, so I particularly encourage bloggers (and blawgers) to submit articles on the realities of work and professional life, the business of law, firm management, marketing, strategy, and career development.Those in the legal community who already read Maister's business blog are looking forward to his thoughtful and insightful commentary on some of the best law blog posts that come to his attention by way of submissions and recommendations from law bloggers. Those who newly discover Passion, People and Principles will find a very helpful resource for their business and professional lives.
I will do my best, but it will be hard for me, a non-lawyer, to assess and interpret purely legal submissions. I ask for prior forgiveness for any errors I make!
