Legal Breakfast Briefing

In association with Clydesdale Bank

Speaker - Mark Greenhouse, Director of Levantar

Penny for Improvement

In this interactive presentation Mark will share some of his experiences and observations in taking Lean Management from the shop floor to the law firm.  His observations start with one given to him by a managing partner “Of course we have processes; it’s just that everyone has their own version…”

Mark will bring with him a simple exercise, now used in business schools across the world that explains how we often mis-manage improvement and change.

From this he’ll talk about the most common wasted efforts he sees in law firms.  He’ll share his insights into how to get people to open up about the processes they really use.

He’ll also bring with him examples of where Lean Management is making inroads into the legal world and where it is most relevant.  Attendees will also receive a copy of the PDF Lean for Lawyers – a guide, written by Mark.
