Every lawyer – whether in private practice or in-house – is under pressure to work more efficiently and to provide high value results at a lower cost. One way to achieve this is by improving the processes that are used every day by identifying what is most valuable to the organization, identifying and eliminating waste in those processes, and implementing new strategies for efficiency.
In this second of the 6-part Best practices for the legal department of tomorrow webinar series developed by Osler’s Litigation and Dispute Resolution team, Mara Nickerson, Chief Knowledge Officer, and Jennifer Thompson, a knowledge management lawyer in the firm’s Litigation Group, provide valuable insight into legal process improvement using the principles of Lean Six Sigma, and in particularly the concepts of value and waste. They also offer tangible examples of litigation efficiency tools and projects that have been successfully implemented at Osler.
