“We have had a long and proud history of mutual involvement with ICBE.
We’ve been awarded the Shingo bronze on two occasions and a key part of our success has been our ability to dip into the ICBE network and discover best practice. We have really been able to

take the knowledge sharing on board and reflect that in the way we do business in New Ross. It’s been a powerful plus to have ICBE there for us. They were a significant partner for us and introduced us to others on the Shingo journey. It provided access and sharing of information and similarly we have opened our doors to other companies.
Its shared knowledge and shared learning – that’s the ethos that ICBE has created.
I think it provides a safe, non-competitive environment for competitors to share best practice, to wear the green jersey for Ireland, and it is one of the reasons Ireland is a hub for awards.”

“I would certainly recommend ICBE membership.
It’s been good for us, it has offered us opportunities to network, to get funded training, to come to events and conferences and get

to hear the greatest and the best talk about what they do. I would endorse companies becoming involved.”

“The best practice visits are vital for us. Going to see what other companies are doing – using other companies bench marks so we can bring back tools or systems that they are using. Also, the Call for Support is brilliant. We can

send in an email and get feedback from other companies who have experience in your project as well. We can get groups of people to go on these visits.”
