Time management for time poor employees

Read this case study to see how we overcame time challenges for client billing employees by using a hybrid virtual process.

  • Situation:Time management training was required for time-poor employees.
  • Challenge:Hybrid approach needed, both a classroom and virtual VTT trainer presented.
  • Solution:A practical training sprint designed and delivered succinctly.
  • Result:Training goals achieved with minimal away from desk time.

Hourly billing is a minefield. And if your people aren’t spot on with their time management, you’re going to lose out. An international law firm based in Germany got in touch with us to help them create a training program that slid seamlessly into their busy schedules…

When your clients are paying by the hour, every unproductive minute you spend away from your desk is a minute wasted. This Germany based international law firm needed training for their people but didn’t want to lose out on billable hours. VTT was there to help. We crafted a solution where multiple participants from the same location could learn together, virtually.

Oh, and we did the whole thing in German too.
