Legal Lean Sigma Institute Services
LLSI provides specialized consulting, facilitation, project support, workshops, and certifications that take you, your organization, and your clients to new levels of excellence. We are the experts when it comes to process improvement and project management in the legal profession: we invented Legal Lean Sigma® and the Legal WorkOut®.
  • Consulting services that encompass the spectrum of organizational development and structuring, including program design, needs assessments, competitive positioning, advisory services to leaders, compensation redesign, governance, marketing of PI/PM programs, as well as pricing, performance management, practice management, and other "P"s.
  • Legal Lean Sigma ® and Project Management certifications
  • The Legal WorkOut®, a collaborative approach to accelerated process improvements.
  • Process improvement project design, facilitation, and support
  • Process mapping workshops
  • Programs, retreats, and keynote addresses
All of our work is specific to the legal profession. We believe there is no one, right way to do this work. So, whether we are working with a law firm, legal department, service provider, vendor, or legal aid office either individually or in a collaborative setting, each and every engagement is tailored to the unique needs of our clients. 
Legal Lean Sigma® programs are the first to be designed for adult learning, plus, you don't have to spend your time and energy bridging well established concepts and tools from manufacturing. We did it for you. We use relevant case studies, examples, and success stories from law firms and legal departments so that you can learn about Six Sigma, Lean and PM in the context of what is most important and immediately useful to you.

Our Approach to Process Improvement and Project Management
LLSI has translated PI and PM concepts, frameworks, and tools specifically for the legal profession. When we combine process improvement and project management, we have excellent processes that are managed well; one without the other only gets us so far. Together, they support unparalleled teamwork and communication, reduce wasteful activities, allow us to discover best practices, and increase value for everyone.
