In­ter­est lev­els sought for ‘Lean for Mi­cro’ busi­ness pro­gramme

Wicklow People (West Edition) - - NEWS -

EX­PRES­SIONS of in­ter­est are be­ing sought by Lo­cal En­ter­prise Of­fice Wick­low over the pos­si­bil­ity of run­ning a ‘Lean for Mi­cro’ pro­gramme

Lean is about do­ing things bet­ter, which in turn makes a busi­ness more prof­itable. Lean tools and tech­niques are help­ing com­pa­nies across the globe to ad­dress com­pet­i­tive­ness is­sues within their busi­nesses, build­ing the ca­pa­bil­ity of their peo­ple to iden­tify is­sues and im­prove their op­er­a­tions, in­creas­ing ca­pac­ity as they im­prove ef­fi­ciency and ef­fec­tive­ness.

If there is enough in­ter­est shown, LEO Wick­low will run the ‘Lean for Mi­cro’ pro­gramme to as­sist a se­lect num­ber of es­tab­lished Wick­low Busi­nesses to in­tro­duce and im­ple­ment lean work prac­tices in their busi­ness.

The pro­gramme looks at costs, cash­flow, op­er­a­tional pro­cesses, lead times etc., and dis­cusses how waste af­fects both profit and cus­tomer sat­is­fac­tion.

Ex­pres­sions of in­ter­est in the pro­gramme are be­ing ac­cepted, with pro­vi­sions for a late 2018 start or early 2019.

The pro­gramme would com­prise of five half-days with an ex­pe­ri­enced Lean Con­sul­tant from the En­ter­prise Ire­land Lean Pane and vet­ted by LEO Wick­low. There would also be on­site meet­ings at par­tic­i­pat­ing busi­nesses. A small par­tic­i­pa­tion fee ap­plies.

The pro­gramme has run suc­cess­fully for the past two years. For fur­ther de­tails on the LEAN pro­gramme visit www.lo­ca­len­ter­prise.ie/Wick­low.
