Legal Lean Sigma® and Project Management
It's not about doing more with less.
It's about doing the right things and doing them right, the first time, every time.
LLSI_bullet.jpg  Our Approach to Process Improvement and Project Management
LLSI has translated PI and PM concepts, frameworks, and tools specifically for the legal profession. We believe that it is the PI/PM combination that enables us to 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.
LLSI has the experts when it comes PI and PM in law firms and legal departments. Our tried and true methods improve legal and business processes and help our clients develop their own PI/PI programs. LLSI is the recognized leader in this space, owning registered trademarks in both Legal Lean Sigma® and the Legal WorkOut®.
