Efficiency in Law Firms - clear desk policy?

Every day you are faced with frustrations. Frustrations that mean you are;

  • waiting for information, paperwork, emails to be returned - checking this information for errors,
  • stopping and re-starting work due to interruptions,
  • waiting for call backs from clients and third parties,
  • checking the work of others for errors and compliance,
  • searching for notes in a file, on a PC, across different software screens,
  • generating bills and checking invoices bills,
  • providing a Rolls Royce service for Mini revenues....

These (and the another 40+ frustrations we have seen whilst working with legal teams) waste your time and effort, delay work to clients and drive Lock-Up, WIP upwards.

All the Daily FRUSTRATIONS are listed in our latest FREE PDF booklet*

"Daily FRUSTRATIONS - STOP throwing time and effort away!"

The good news, these frustrations CAN BE removed or reduced - meaning you get more time to do the work you want and deliver work faster.

*The booklet includes a Time Wasted Calculator for you and your firm.

Lean and Process Improvement techniques have been delivering efficiency improvements in large and small businesses since the mid 1980's.

In the legal world the adoption of such techniques has been much slower and is still being established. 

In the past month you and your team will have become frustrated the activities listed in our latest Frustrations Guide. 

All of the frustrations we list are things that we know legal staff tell their friends, their partners about their business -it really is a list of things that frustrate you and your staff.

All of the frustrations we list, waste your time and effort.   

We know because our clients have told us. 

Time and effort you could have put into other matters, files, tasks, & activities. 

Time that costs you money!

How Does Lean Management Help You and Your Firm?

Lean Management gives you the tools, techniques and behaviours to help you find the daily frustrations.

From this you can find out how much time and effort they waste and implement solutions to sort them out. 

 

Lean Management - How Many Frustrations Do You Have?

It's really simple to find out.

Use the Frustrations Guide to give you examples of wasted time and effort.

Ask your staff  if they recognise any of the examples.

Ask them what else frustrates them about doing the job. 

Listen! to their replies. DON'T dismiss.

While you're at it, why not estimate how many times each of them happen each week and how much time you lose sorting them out.

TIP: Use the Time Wasted Calculator in the book.
