Advanced Legal Case Management Certificate
Earn the Six Sigma Green Belt for Paralegals
A paralegal is in essence a project manager. A person who has the ability to manage multiple tasks at the same time without losing focus on the purpose of the task at hand. It is difficult to pull all the pieces of a puzzle together while being laser focused. Even with the advances in technology a paralegal will still need to harness the necessary skills to master the role without burning out or exposing employers to risk.
In this advanced course the Six Sigma and the project management framework will be applied to handling legal cases and projects from beginning to end. What is Six Sigma? Six Sigma is not a new methodology. It has been utilizing by organizations like Motorola, General Electric, and Hyundai Motor Co. for decades to improve quality and processes within their organizations. This Six Sigma Green Belt Certificate is specific to the paralegal professional role and job function. You will not find another Six Sigma program specific to the paralegal profession.
