Helping Businesses Be the Best They Can Be.
Exploring new and better ways of working that will bring improvements in the shortest time. Learning how a challenge that has kept you awake at night has been solved by others. And knowing that you’re building a strong company not just for yourself, but as part of your commitment to Ireland’s competitive future.
The key to it all is SHARING. A coming together for the good of not just one, but for all. At the Irish Centre of Business Excellence, our Members know that power is gained by sharing knowledge, not holding on to it. Because knowledge only reaches its true potential when we pass it on – and watch it multiply. Without a doubt, some of the most successful companies in the world are those who share, collaborate and practice free exchange of ideas.
This ‘willingness to work together’ is in the DNA of the ICBE, and has seen us help set, support and share best business practice, skills and knowledge for all our Members within the manufacturing and service industries.
Through events, customised funded training, Benchmarking Visits to exemplary companies and our unique Call for Support process we facilitate continuous improvement, spread innovations and collectively solve problems for the good of all.
