Scott Westfahl, You Get What You Measure: Lawyer Development Frameworks & Effective Performance Evaluations (Nat'l Ass'n L. Placement 2008).

Abstract: "You get what you measure" may be an old adage, but it remains true. If a law firm wants to develop its next generation of leaders, the firm must first identify what skills and traits those lawyers should possess and then implement performance evaluations to measure individual and organizational lawyer development accordingly. This book presents a range of ideas from the corporate world that are now being introduced successfully into the legal profession. Numerous charts and sample forms are also featured throughout the book.
