    Lean for Micro Businesses


    Lean Management Systems have been supported by Enterprise Ireland (Lean Business Offer) since 2009 and also by the IDA and Udaras to much success. In 2015 a Lean for Micro pilot was run by the LEO offices in conjunction with Enterprise Ireland. A pilot was also carried out in Donegal. A total of eight LEO offices and 23 Leo companies were involved with considerable benefits accruing.  IN 2016 a further 12 LEO offices and 30 companies participated in a Lean programme with more expected to be involved in 2017 when funding by the government will be specifically available for Lean for Micro. The presentation will review the Lean for Micro progress so far from pilots to progress to prospects.
