I was honoured to open the Enterprise Excellence Ireland Conference 2019 in Croke Park this morning.
The conference brings together companies and organisations from across Ireland and Europe to discuss the implementation of Lean management systems within their businesses.
The Lean approach involves delivering value to the customer, eliminating waste and continuous improvement for the business.
There were over 700 delegates at the event, which is supported by the IDA and Enterprise Ireland. Enterprise Ireland has backed 1,100 Lean projects around the country over the past ten years.
Local Enterprise Offices have also adopted the Lean approach, supporting 200 projects.
It is great to see our business leaders coming together to share their knowledge and experience at conferences such as these. There was a great atmosphere in the room.
