Survey Highlights Cross Team Communication During the Discovery Process as a Key Challenge

LDM Global today announced the results of its 2011 eDiscovery Errors survey. The company asked a selection of industry professionals their views on which errors they experienced most often during the discovery process. Results were collected from across the USA, Europe and Australia.

According to Scott Merrick, LDM Global Marketing Director and survey author, “Our goal was to find out what the real issues and problems are around the discovery process. The survey, similar to one conducted late last year, was intended to be a snapshot of the industry and not statistically meaningful in a broad sense. We were looking for a quick measure of where industry professionals are seeing errors occurring. We agreed with the results being focused on issues around communications, processes, policies and procedures. Of particular interest was the ongoing challenge of good communication. Technology has not solved that challenge and it remains at the forefront of where mistakes are made.”

Some of the biggest challenges regarding the eDiscovery process globally are:

  •     Failure to communicate across teams involved in the eDiscovery process
  •     Inadequate and/or poorly implemented data retention policies
  •     Failure to perform sufficient quality control
