March 8th @ 2pm

Many of us are Swans in the business world. On the surface we glide effortlessly across the water while beneath, we paddle furiously just to keep going. Many more of us are the “Mighty Oz”. All powerful and in control with the appearance of seamless automation and flow, but in reality, our teams are manually pulling levers to keep the show on the road.

Businesses across Ireland are facing these challenges head on by adopting Lean Thinking. By breaking down What They Do & How They Do It, and then focusing on what the customer actually values. Through this they identify and eliminate Waste and Inefficiency, leading to reduced costs, improved quality, and better customer service, giving them the competitive edge.

This event will provide a hands-on introduction to Lean Thinking, showing you how to spot Wastes in your processes. We will set out the many supports available to businesses to Grow Lean and hear from local businesses who will give an insight into the real and tangible change introducing LEAN principles to their business.
