What is the lean methodology?

I've heard all about it but I'm not really sure how I could apply it to my business.

Hi Anonymous,

There is a lot to implementing Lean management and operational practice into any business and the actual activities and actions are very business specific. There is a lot published on the topic ( I have authored a lot of generic material too). Find a Lean management consultant, or interest group in your area with some expertise in your business discipline. People who advocate Lean principals are more often than not most eager to tell you all about the benefits you may achieve.

Lean startup can also be referred to starting a business on a shoe string budget, for example there are numerous articles on marketing on a shoe string budget. Networking is a prime example of this.
