During strategic planning, there is often “resource anxiety” — worrying that there will not be enough people or funding or time to execute effectively. The solution is Leverage Point Focus™.

A Leverage Point is where you can have the greatest impact with the least effort. Think about what happens in bowling when you hit the #1 pin in just the right way. Presto, all the remaining pins go down. That’s having the greatest impact.

For every strategy, there are multiple Leverage Points — key customers, key suppliers, key employees, and key processes like innovation, marketing, and decision-making.

“Leverage points are points of power. People intuitively know where they are.” ~ Jay Forrester
