The Value Challenge is ACC’s initiative to reconnect the cost and value of
legal services. Through resources, workshops, and roundtables, ACC helps inside and
external counsel understand the key management practices that can be employed to
control costs and drive value: the “value levers.” We also share what works, showcasing
compelling examples of initiatives undertaken in legal departments and law firms that
result in lower costs, greater predictability, and better outcomes for clients.
This booklet is designed to provide an overview of the ACC Value Challenge
for legal executives in Australia and New Zealand. By weaving together excerpts
from key ACC how-to resources and examples of how leaders of the value movement
Down Under are driving value, we aim to provide not only ideas and inspiration, but
also practical information to empower your own value initiatives. Every value leader
starts somewhere. When you identify the area that you want to tackle first, we invite
you to take a deeper dive into the relevant ACC management resource featured here,
and then begin, or extend, your value journey.
