Next Generation Enterprise Excellence

Lean Business Ireland Awards 12th October 2023

Number of Awards (2)

  • SME (<250 employees)
  • Large (>250 employees)

This award is open to indigenous Irish organisations and the Irish-based operation of multinational companies that can demonstrate how they have been investing in their processes, people, and products/services to enable a more robust, resilient, agile, adaptable, fit-for-purpose, and next generation enterprise. The more organisation-wide and all-encompassing the investment being made, the higher the scores awarded.  For smaller companies, incremental investment will be sought.


Applicants must submit via the web-form below, paying particular attention to the following aspects for this Award:

  • The context and plan for investment, and how these link to the overall strategy
  • The delivery mechanisms
  • How people (customers, employees, suppliers) were engaged
  • The impact of the investment, both internally and externally
  • How it contributed to the continuous improvement of the overall organisation
  • What new technologies and upskilling were included to create a more agile and resilient organisation

Applicants must:

  • upload a PDF file of 3-to-5 A4 pages as their core submission;
  • upload a complementary video, noting that Judges will be particularly keen to view raw/authentic video footage (e.g. hand-held mobile) of exemplary areas/initiatives as opposed to more formal corporate videos;
  • upload a high-resolution (300dpi) PNG/JPEG file of their organisation(s) logo; and
  • name the person who would collect the trophy, if successful.
