30 Aug Lean Thinking & Methodology
Why Think Lean and Why Pack Lean?
Certain wasteful processes in life may not be preventable, but the idea is that the leaner the thinker we are, the more we will be able to manage them. For example, by continuously minimising wastage of our time.
The LeanPac® system of products have been created through the evolution of the lean thinking. It is now able to, through its products, facilitate individuals to evolve and continuously improve efficiency and time management during travels.
Lean is a philosophy and structured methodology implemented and popularised by the Japanese car manufacturing industry to achieve greater efficiency and productivity without compromising quality. This is in order to stay competitive in the global market.
This thinking and methodology is process based and is applicable in all aspects of work and life and has since been successfully deployed across various industry sectors including Construction, IT, Retail, Oil & Gas, Health, Environmental, Accounting etc.
LeanPac® strives to apply lean thinking, and the hard tools and techniques available, to its range of products. This is in order to boost the lean traveller in enhancing their experience and reduce stress that traveling can cause.
The key aim for lean application is to systematically eliminate wasted time. For example opening the many different zips and compartments to find and access items, walking out of the bathroom to get certain toiletries because there is no space in the bathroom to keep them all there etc.
Lean is not about finding a solution to a problem. It is about flexibility of the system to deal with various issues one might encounter in our fast paced and ever changing society.
LeanPac® DOES NOT boast a travel product that is all things to all men, at a particular moment of time. What it does, is advocate lean thinking and choosing products in line with individual needs. It encourages the concept of modular packing (LeanPac-ing) using products specifically designed to eliminate wasted time.
