Welcome to Lean Business Ireland – Global Leadership in Lean Enterprise Excellence

Lean Business Ireland (LBI) was launched in 2017.  The team behind LBI wanted to showcase Ireland’s global leadership in Lean Enterprise Excellence that helps to drive Ireland’s competitiveness

The team, (represented by the State, enterprises, networks, business representatives, providers and third level institutes), developed this national brand that represents Ireland’s leading role in enterprise excellence.  This continues to be progressed through a supporting research and training infrastructure, State supports  and business networks for both multinational and indigenous businesses across all sectors and all locations in Ireland. But fundamentally, engagement in this infrastructure is dependent on enterprises and how well continuous improvements approaches are applied.  The progressive business community supported by a continuously evolving infrastructure leads to Ireland’s recognition as a global leader in lean enterprise excellence.


To create a competitive landscape in Ireland, LBI has been driving five things in particular   – this national portal, signposting and presenting a national source of information in enterprise excellence in Ireland; an annual Enterprise Excellence Conference to showcase Ireland’s competitive environment; regional lean networks to bring local businesses and the support environment together; national and international site visits supporting learning development and sharing; Annual LBI Award Ceremony to recognise the efforts of those involved in driving this agenda forward.


Companies in Ireland have been creating continuous improvements in their organisations for many years and it is culminating in a landscape that we want to showcase to the world – we are glad you clicked on here to join us
