Could ZARA be the new LEAN fashion leader?

Well it’s been around for nearly 30 years in various formats in the West, so to call it new is stretching it a bit. However Spanish based global clothing retailer Zara has QUADRUPLED turnover and profit on the back of it since 2000 and this example demonstrates how lean can lead to organisations being able to charge more for their output.  

Beware though this strategy has taken 30 years in the year making!
