Looking for levers (3): increasing inputs

The second set of high-leverage activities are things that you can do to bring in more inputs, especially inputs that increase with time:

  • Finding new people who share your vision and have the skills, time and energy to make a contribution;
  • Finding more, new, and better-quality resources: more money, better raw materials, new equipment and tools;
  • Finding the inputs of knowledge, information and inspiration that allow you and your team to innovate, mixing new and proven ideas and processes to make something new that works;
  • Connecting with new customers; opening new opportunities with entirely new types of customers.

I'd love to hear your thoughts and recommended resources...
