Larry Port, the co-founder and CEO of Rocket Matter posted an interesting series of suggestions about generating ideas in a group, ranging from buying lunch to using mind maps. 6 Ways to Generate Ideas in a Group on the company’s Legal Productivity blog offers a variety of ideas for creating forward momentum in an organization. One of the most compelling is #6 — Regularly Schedule Start, Stop, Continue Meetings. Port explains that every two weeks, his team meets for 15-30 minutes and answers the following questions:
* What should we start doing that would help us?
* What’s not working that we should stop?
* What have we recently implemented that we should continue?
These three questions are just as applicable to individuals as organizations. They prompt reflection and action.

He shared his insights on the transformation of the local legal market and the double-edged benefit of technology, i.e., increased productivity balanced by higher client expectations.
