You often have to do the same series of things on matters of the same type. Some of this can be put into a checklist, although it is a moving target, as there are dependencies between steps. Amicus has superb workflow precedents that automate these for you. Create them once, then use them on every similar transaction.
Precedent workflows ensure that you and your staff always do what is required, when it is required. More – they can actually help you do the steps along the way. So you get more done, more accurately. Re-use your work, and build your intellectual capital.
