Lean is a collection of tools and methodologies directed at improving process efficiencies and reducing waste to deliver value. Law is a service, whether lawyers provide it in a firm or in-house. Like all services, opportunities for waste abound. Lean helps tackle those inefficient processes.
Key Takeaways:
  • Provide a basic overview of Lean, its key concepts, tools and goals
  • Make the business case for using Lean in the practice of law
  • Conduct a table-top exercise: We will create teams, assign roles and present them with an inefficient legal process. Each team will conduct a flash Kaizen event to come up with a future state process map aimed at removing waste from the defective process
