LLO (Lean Legal Operations)

In 2020, Trane Technologies charted a new course, to boldly challenge what is possible for a sustainable world. Among the company’s core purposes was the creation of a world class Lean Enterprise. Executive leadership mandated the Legal Department to identify obstacles to efficiency, engage key players, and expand the journey of continuous improvement. This endeavor resulted in the creation of Lean Legal Operations (LLO), which applies lean principles to legal operations, creating efficiencies, common work, and information sharing to reduce duplicative efforts. LLO highlighted the need for a single point of access for all legal applications and today, it is becoming the bedrock of the Trane Technologies Legal Department.
