Corporate Counsel Exchange, IQPC Exchange interviewed the
General Counsel of Maersk Line, Martin Clausen, to find out how the legal
department of the largest container ship operator in the world has utilised lean
methodologies, and what impact this is having on productivity.
Martin's team has implemented a number of systems and methods and is
planning to expand these in the future. One of the key tools they have applied
so far is a visual management system. The team have also done work
observations to investigate how their legal executives currently work, offer tips
on how to improve their processes and identify training needs. The next stage
planned for the legal department is a Gemba observation, which is a workplace
observation technique used in Lean theory.
