Using Process Improvement and Project Management to Achieve Competitive Advantage
Do you know how much effort it really takes to DO and DELIVER your work?
All processes, whether legal or business, benefit from combining process improvement and project management. Led by Catherine Alman MacDonagh, JD, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of the Legal Lean Sigma Institute, this webinar provides an initiation to Lean and Six Sigma, the two most important process improvement toolkits, and project management.
Today's law firm and law department professionals are faced with new challenges and opportunities to help their firms and organizations maximize efficiencies. They must develop and employ strategies and tactics based on the client perspective and reconnect legal costs to the value received.
The Legal Lean Sigma® programs are the first to be designed exclusively for the legal profession. You don't have to spend your time and energy bridging concepts because LLSI did it for you. You will learn about process improvement and project management in a relevant context, because LLSI teaches these topics by using case studies, examples and success stories from law firms and legal departments. This way, you can learn about Six Sigma, Lean and how to manage process improvement projects in a way that is most immediately useful to you.
