Get the Waste Our of Your Practice
The business of law isn't what it used to be. Competition is up and margins are flat. Clients demand value from their lawyers and are willing to shop around to find it. Lawyers face increasing competition from customary rivals as well as emerging online DIY companies that have commoditized many legal services. These pressures are forcing lawyers to re-examine their practices and processes. Lean Six Sigma is a managerial approach that improves performance by eliminating the waste of physical resources, time, effort and talent while assuring that the work is done right the first time. Waste is defined as anything that doesn't add value in your client's eyes (your perception is irrelevant). In this seminar, you'll learn how to identify and remove the 8 most common types of waste from your practice.
Take the Work Out of Your Workflow - A Case Study
W. Edwards Deming famously said, "When a good person meets a bad system, the system always wins." If you know or suspect that there are some inefficient processes in your office, the first step to improvement is to map out the process in question. In the legal world, lawyers are rarely responsible for every step of a process. As a result, there's often a disconnect between what a lawyer thinks is happening and what is actually happening. In this seminar, we'll show you how to map processes and walk you through a real-life example where small adjustments made a big difference for a law practice.
