Surprised by this new ebbf website?
short news from ebbf members
Nishat Ruiter presented to over 200 lawyers, some of Fortune 500 companies at the Argyle Forum in New York on the topic of Bridging the Gap: Using WIki Technology for a Non-legal Audience. The audience heard about consultation, creative ways to educate their clients, how truly listening to clients and becoming partners allows the greatest impact. Ultimately these steps allow us to move from the current silos adversarial mentality of legal vs. business to a more collaborative approach.
“All solutions start with communication. This is even more important for in house lawyers who work with clients and need to assess the legal risks from a business perspective, not only legal. Consultation is key in this in collaborating on solutions to help both sides make a difference.”
My research at the University of Bologna this last year was focused on the cultural concepts of development and sustainable production and of “Life Cycle Thinking” approach.
This research program was concerned with the life cycle management of products aimed at designing and realising eco-compatible productions. It was intended to support the business decisions, both in the evaluation of investment projects and in the medium term projection of the choices taken for the analysis of the degree of effectiveness, efficiency and sustainability of eco-innovations of products and processes.
