Legal Lean Sigma® and Project Management
It's not just about doing more with less.
It's about doing the right things and consistently doing them right.  

LLSI_bullet.jpg  Why Process Improvement and Project Management?
LLSI has translated, combined, and found new ways to employ PI and PM concepts, frameworks, and tools specifically for the legal profession. PI/PM helps us determine the best way to carry out work to consistently and reliably deliver excellent quality of work and service. It's about doing the right thing right the first time every time. 
The PI/PM combination enables us to improve teamwork and communication, reduce wasteful activities, discover best practices, and increase value for everyoneWe develop and employ tried and true strategies starting with "voice of the client" to find better, even innovative, ways to perform and deliver our work.

LLSI provides expert consulting support and programs that take you, your organization, and your clients to new levels of excellence:
  • 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, practice management and other "P"s.
  • Education and skill development through certification courses, workshops, retreats, and keynote addresses
  • Process improvement project design, facilitation, and support
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 exclusively for the legal profession. You don't have to spend your time and energy bridging concepts from manufacturing because 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 to you.
