Over a year ago, a client came to us with what seemed like a relatively simple request: to document and validate key data points for their historical products liability settlements to prove underlying exhaustion.
KCIC deployed a small team to review the scope of the project and determine what sources of data and documents were available as well as what tools would be needed to review and capture the key pieces of information. The team collaborated with counsel and the client to understand all the expected uses and needs for the project and then began planning the execution strategy and developing the tools needed to get the work done. An important component of this initial phase was to determine the volume of data and documents to review as well as to gain an understanding of how they were stored, how accessible they would be, and how “clean” the existing data was. Based on the assessment, KCIC put together a team of consultants from all levels of the organization and hired a group of project consultants specifically for the document review.
KCIC has a long track-record of utilizing technology to design management consulting solutions, and this project was no different. However, due to the scope — both from the size of the team and the varied sources of data and documents — we determined that a substantial project management infrastructure was necessary.
