The Lean Way to Tie Your Shoes
Visual instructions on how to tie a "Ian knot" show six simple steps.
This is the world's fastest shoelace knot because there are fewer sequential steps and it all happens in a single, fluid movement. It has been said that the reduction in time could add up to 4 days per lifetime. Tying your shoes might be necessary but it is hardly value added. Don't be complacent and take common practices for granted they can be time wasters.
Even this simple example provides some Lean lessons - everything can be improved, small things can add up, and single piece flow is the ideal process.
