Certifications & Programs
CertificationS and other Courses
Legal Lean Sigma Institute certification courses, workshops, programs, retreats, and presentations are designed for legal and business professionals. All our privately delivered certification courses, workshops, programs, retreats, and presentations are designed and tailored for your group. We also offer a limited number of open enrollment courses during the year. If you are interested in hosting one, please contact us.
Our approach is to introduce concepts and tools, then provide opportunities for attendees to apply them to a process they’re interested in improving. Through case studies and the use of success stories from law firms and legal departments, participants learn about process improvement and project management in relevant and immediately useful contexts.
