Certifications & Programs
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 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.

All our privately delivered course, workshops, programs, retreats, and presentations are tailored and designed specifically for your group. Processes, projects, and teams are selected in advance. For the workshop components of privately delivered certification courses, attendees learn together, begin drafting deliverables such as project charters and rough process maps, earn a certification and, in most cases, are eligible for CLE credit.
We received a complete introduction to this very comprehensive material in a way that allowed us to take away practical means to begin implementing the concepts as part of our work. Your facilitation met the class at its various participant needs and your design/structure allowed the teams to work on practical application in a way that reinforced the concepts via your own work/design.
