Stuttgart/Bautzen. Experts of the management consultancy
18 administrative judges from Bautzen, Leipzig, Dresden and Chemnitz are being trained by the consultants – with the objective of noticeably increasing the quality and efficiency of court procedures. The initial focus is upon a sustainable improvement of manpower requirement planning: The Higher Administrative Court (OVG) requires sufficient professionally specialized lawyers, in order to more quickly reduce the backlog of older proceedings and to handle new proceedings in a speedy manner.
In order to not only increase the flexibility of the justice system, but also the quality of court proceedings, OVG president Erich Künzler and his judges would first like to become acquainted with the methods of lean management as practiced in industry. Subsequently, it should be explored how it can be possible to realize personnel policy measures in the court service, focusing on a lean and consistent creation of value. The Saxon lawyers seek to achieve a more expedient planning of personnel requirements, primarily focusing on specialty skills, thereby leading to a higher degree of satisfaction of results, both for the parties involved and the judges.
