Some of the world’s most efficient and forward-thinking manufacturing companies long ago learned the power of lean methodologies and systems thinking. But how can law firms employ lean thinking and methodologies to grow profits and strengthen client relationships?

That will be the topic we explore in a free webinar tomorrow, Leaner Law Firm, Fatter Revenues, presented by the cloud-based practice-management software Rocket Matter and the blog Above the Law.

I’ll be serving as moderator, but the principal speaker will be Larry Port, founder and CEO of Rocket Matter and co-author of the book, The Lean Law Firm: Run Your Firm Like The World’s Most Efficient and Profitable Businesses, published by the ABA’s Law Practice Division.

The webinar will cover what it means to be a lean law firm and how to employ systems thinking to see your firm from a new perspective. You will learn how to measure and improve your operations in order to maximize the value you’re supplying to your client, and gain practical tips you can employ immediately to improve your firm’s financial position.

The one-hour Oct. 17 webinar starts at 1 p.m. Eastern time. It is free, but registration is required.
