This workshop is presented by the Gimbal Group and takes place over 3 sessions. April 13, April 27th and May 11.

Join us for a new special educational series! Specifically tailored for members of the BCLMA, The LeanLegal® Efficiency Toolkit provides practical, achievable skills that members will be able to implement immediately in your own work, to add more value and reduce wasted time and effort.

In this dynamic three-part workshop series, you’ll harness proven business improvement tools to create innovative solutions for your organization and your clients. Some of the most iconic companies on the planet have been using Lean and process improvement for years, delivering better quality service to their clients in less time and at less cost. Now you can use the same techniques to gain the competitive edge and create a more agile, productive, profitable organization.

What you’ll learn.

  • Get an introduction to Lean and a powerful set of skills you can use right away to make your work easier and deliver better value to your firm and your clients.
  • Hands-on practice identifying value and waste in your work, and experience applying creative, interactive, and highly effective tools to overcome real problems facing you and your organization.
  • A framework for creative problem-solving that ensures you understand the issues and root causes before jumping to solutions.
  • A list of potential improvement opportunities targeting the waste that reduces your productivity and undermines the quality and value of the work you do, or that is done for you, every day.

Why you should come?

  • The fast-paced, interactive format will challenge you to move beyond “That’s the way we’ve always done it,” and take you out of your comfort zone.
  • You’ll learn to design solutions that add real value for you, your firm, and your clients (internal or external), improving performance within your practice and in the business and administrative processes that support everything you do.
  • You’ll expand your ability and that of your team to develop and implement innovative solutions that deliver top-quality services in less time and at less cost.
