Lean Packing Methodology

The Lean Packing Manifesto:

 We are uncovering better ways of packing clothes for a four-day travel week by doing it and helping others do it. Through this work we have come to value:

  •  Function over form
  •  Overhead space over checked luggage
  •  Light weight luggage over clothing options
  • Planning over procrastination

 That is, while there is value in the items on the right, we value the items on the left more.

Lean Packing Methodology acts as a starting point for travel plans. It is to be used as a framework and guideline for business travel. Practitioners of the Lean Packing Methodology are encouraged to experiment and explore new avenues for leveraging the methodology while maintaining its integrity.
