L.L. Bean's Duck Boots and More

Men's L.L.Bean Boots, 8" Thinsulate

Wally Bock gives us some especially interesting Stories and Strategies in Real Life. An excerpt from the Kim Bhasin piece:

“L.L. Bean struggled to keep up with demand for its popular duck boots last holiday season and wound up with 100,000 back-ordered pairs and no way to make them fast enough. Since then, the Maine shoemaker has shored up its manufacturing operations so it wouldn’t happen again. It’s happening again.”
