Welcome to the Irish Continuous Improvement & Operational Excellence Forum. The ICIOE was established in 2011 to provide a much needed framework for continuous improvement and operational excellence professionals to discuss and share ideas in all aspects of CI & OE and connect with other CI & OE professionals in various industries and businesses across Ireland and around the world.
In the true sprit of the Irish Continuous Improvement & Operational Excellence Forum we aim to provide this framework in a not-for-profit forum that will encourage the open sharing of ideas and concepts that in turn will grow our community of practice.
