Retail

With huge staff levels, complex supply chains and quick turnarounds, retail is a tough environment to play in!  Many of the most successful operators in this competitive market are supported by an effective Lean operating system, backed up by focused visual management, and we are currently seeing a hugely increased realisation of the power of Lean in the retail sector.  Companies such as Amazon, Zara and Home Bargains are all devoting large amounts of resources exclusively to developing their Lean programmes.
