Lean Project Objectives
We have worked with Tracey Solicitors over the last few years. Since then, we have been assisting them to improve their services using our Lean Business Tools training programme.
While working with them, their employees identified process improvements that could be made within their own work areas. These projects related to Will Generator Preparing Files for Hearing and Centralised Undertakings Register. A brief outline of 3 of these Lean projects is described below. You can also read the full case studies below. You may also be interested in our other case studies.
Case Study 1
Our first case study for Tracey Solicitors was identified by an employee at the firm. She saw that there was an opportunity to grow the company by having a system and process to carry out effective and accurate work. Her project was writing Wills for their clients. This is highly skilled but can be time consuming for the solicitor. She saw that there was a need for a Will Generator System using a standardised and safe procedure. Read the full case study here.
Case Study 2
Preparing Files for Hearing
Our second case study for Tracey Solicitors concerns preparing files for Hearing. This project was developed by an employee who saw an opportunity to make an improvement to the business. It was taking almost 6 hours to prepare a file before a solicitor takes a file to Court. If the case is settled, then the paper file is not used. If the case runs to a Hearing, then the file may be required. In both cases, the file is returned to the office and kept until costs are agreed. Read the full case study here.
Case Study 3
This third Lean project was identified by a team member. It related to Centralised Undertakings Register. The aim was to introduce a standardised, automated register that is accurate and promotes better risk management. Furthermore, she identified that this could be rolled out to all case types, for example, Wills Register and Deeds Register. Read the full case study here.
