Lean is about doing things better, which in turn makes your business more profitable.  Lean is shorthand for focusing on effectiveness and efficiency across all areas of a business.  Lean works most effectively where it is a fundamental part of the business strategy and not just “using some tools”. Lean tools and techniques are helping companies across the globe to address competitiveness issues within their businesses, building the capability of their people to identify issues and improve their operations, increasing capacity as they improve efficiency and effectiveness.

Local Enterprise Office Wicklow run the Lean for Micro programme to assist a select number of established Wicklow Businesses to introduce and implement lean work practices in their business. The programme looks at costs, cashflow, operational processes, lead times etc., and discusses how waste affects both profit and customer satisfaction.  We are currently accepting expressions of interest in this programme which will commence late 2018/ early 2019.
The programme comprises:

  • 5 half-days with an experienced Lean Consultant (from the Enterprise Ireland Lean Panel & vetted by LEO Wicklow)
  • ONSITE meetings at your business at times and dates of your choosing.
  • A small participation fee applies

The programme has run successfully for the past two years delivering significant benefit to our clients. Here is what the class of 2016 had to say about the programme:

‘I found my experience on the LEAN programme very helpful . I am using the improved sales process regularly and it has saved me a lot of time, time which I can put to better use in growing my business.’
