Lean, Green and Specialist Service Providers Directory Search

In order to become listed on this directory, service providers must demonstrate expertise and experience in each area they are listed for. The agencies convene two meetings a year with the directory members to discuss the Lean and Green programmes and to identify areas for development within the Service Provider cohort. The performance of service providers is tracked and monitored, providing a degree of quality assurance. The creation of the Lean SWIFT guide, NSAI SWiFT 11:2013, Driving Competitiveness using Lean, means that the service providers working as part of the national lean effort are basing their work on a national guide, ensuring you are “not being sold an old piece of rope”.

The wide geographic spread of service providers lets you choose a service provider close to your business. The broad spread of experience and expertise on offer allows you to identify a service provider with the background, scale and expertise to best suit your current needs.

Specialist Lean Service Providers Directory: profiles provided by each service provider on their specialist expertise that supports lean implementation.

Please ensure you carefully read the Guidelines for Use of Service Providers Directory prior to selecting from the list of service providers.

Lean Business Ireland/Enterprise Ireland/IDA Ireland does not give any warranty, either express or implied, as to the qualifications or suitability of any of the persons/firms on the list of service providers and nor are they liable for any loss and/or damage caused by a company’s decision to retain the services of such a service provider.
