Mid-West Lean Network: Workshop 1 How to Start the Lean Journey

February 22, 2018
Atlantic Aviation Institute Shannon Industrial Estate, Shannon

The Mid-West Lean Network is now well established. It was set up to enable companies within the Mid-West region to learn about Lean, share best practice, improve their Lean undertakings and to facilitate member-to-member networking.

We have learnt in the past year that many companies, particularly SMEs and the smaller micro enterprises, have not yet started on their Lean journeys, either through lack of resources or lack of expertise.

This workshop, the first in our 2018 series, will start at the very beginning:

1. Explain what Lean is all about…in any area of a company;
2. Give case examples (2) of how a company can embrace Lean and;
3. Highlight the types of support available to adopt and undertake Lean.

The Mid-West Lean Network: the second largest regional lean network in Ireland, after Waterford Institute of Technology’s Lean Enterprise Excellence Group, was set up in November 2016 to strengthen and increase the existing culture of lean within the Shannon and the wider Mid-West region. Its aim is to enable each industry to broaden and strengthen its competitiveness through knowledge sharing and bench-marking against each other and different industries.
