Lancaster, PA – Barley Snyder partner, Paul Mattaini, and chief administrative officer, Dorothy Rund, were quoted in the cover story for this month’s issue of Legal Management, a magazine published by the Association of Legal Administrators. In the article, “Starting the Six Sigma Revolution at Your Firm” Paul and Dorothy reflect on the inception of Practice Excellence®, and what it means for the firm and its clients today.
The article in its entirety is a feature on how the Six Sigma philosophy fits into the legal industry, and cites the importance of change in the strategic approach to lawyer staffing and remaining competitive in the industry.
Paul and Dorothy go on to discuss the internal organization of the Practice Excellence® initiative and note that every member of Barley Snyder has been trained by Lean Six Sigma consultants. “We really felt, when working on big legal projects, clients want to see more teamwork and planning, and Lean Six Sigma really focuses on seeing what’s going on and fixing it,” said Dorothy.
The firm’s clients are noticing as well. “What surprised us was some of our clients were really intrigued, as well” said Paul. “They appreciated the face that we were able to focus on critical issues, as opposed to just doing things the way they’d always been done.”
