10.05 Interview: Putting Lean Six Sigma learning to work in a legal environment
Six Sigma focuses on process quality and the elimination of variations and defects from products and services. For the modern law firm to succeed they must be open to change, work efficiently and constantly innovate. This insightful interview explores how the methodologies of Six Sigma (born in the manufacturing sector) can be translated into the law firm environment. Our expert will bring a wealth of experience of actual Six Sigma implementation in process improvement within his law firm.

10.40 Plenary debate: Technology to support the future lawyer
Law firms are evolving at an increasingly rapid rate, however, it might not be as quick as the changing traits of the lawyers being recruited. These partners in the making will expect to be plugged in to a mobile world in their personal and working lives. They are the ‘anytime, anywhere' generation and successful firms will be preparing their IT strategy to accommodate this new breed. What will the likely implications be on knowledge management, sharing of data and the use of social tools in the overall business system? This is not to say that new recruits call the shots, but we will explore where the happy medium lies in managing the expectations of existing and future lawyers.
