What is lean

Lean in a nutshell

I’m frequently asked “what is lean?”, so here’s a very short answer which I think captures the essence of it.

Lean is a way of thinking which will transform the way you do business, saving you time, money and improving the quality of what you produce.

It’s a toolkit of techniques and practices which can solve business problems, reduce variation, optimise processes and eliminate waste.

It’s about understanding what adds value for the customer, doing more of that and not wasting time on what they don’t value.

It’s a habit you get into of always asking “how do we get better?”, then taking actions so that we improve a little bit every day.

So that’s Lean in a nutshell.

2019 collection

Let’s face it, no look is really complete without the right finishes. Not to the best of standards, anyway (just tellin’ it like it is, babe). Upgrading your shoe game. Platforms, stilettos, wedges, mules, boots—stretch those legs next time you head out, then rock sliders, sneakers, and flats when it’s time to chill.
