In today’s Jobs Initiative, the government will be announcing a series of measures to address the competitiveness of Irish business. It is apt that Enterprise Ireland’s new Lean Business Programme is launched on the same day.  With the help of this programme, Irish businesses in every sector can learn best practice in efficiency and competitiveness, gain market share and help drive the recovery.
