Promoting improvement & engagement.
The independent portal for all things CI in NZ.

CICE is all about us collaborating nationally to forward our collective lean/CI thinking, and spread a greater CI vision. Everyone has their piece and part to play. Being in the neutral, independent space means gaining an excellent understanding of the themes around NZ. What’s working, what’s not, how to progress forward. The challenge is how do you share, the successful themes, in practice activity. You start by  collating all the activity, then build a network of participants, people, members sharing and interacting with their stories of success and challenge. Here then is some of what’s going on in NZ.

but there’s so much behind
it all, please be in touch.

Companies & Organisations…..
There are around 2000+ companies involved in some type of improvement, lean, systems thinking and activity…..all nature of sites, levels, functions, locations and industries….manufacturing; big, small, all types, well known brands, SMEs, high exporters, localised companies, electronics, medical devices, services, banks, government, dairy, forestry, wine, honey, food industry, logistics, tourism, jewellery, sports, plastics, joinery, power, construction, boating, health, education, organisations with 30 employees, and globally with thousands….you name it it’s there! A monthly mail out goes out to a huge number of these contacts.

The list is known as current, but no substitute for doing your own homework. The question is what works for you and your business.  There are significant themes emerging about what works – and what doesn’t. We want NZ to be awesome, and working together on this.
