Le​​an Structure, Low cost

An integral part of World Travellers' success is the continued focus on retaining a management support structure that is as lean as possible, resulting in a low annual management fee for the member stores. We will contract for any skills that we need until we are certain of the necessity of key structural positions. Long term, the structure will remain lean.
