Leveraged Assets are externally oriented ExO-Tools that extend your SME-capabilities and -capacity
Rather than trying to own assets you may rent or share assets to minimize capital requirements and increase agility. Examples of leveraged assets are cloud computing (e.g. Amazon Webservices) , DIY workshops and fabrication studios (e.g. TechShop) or even assets from your customers.
Key questions you should ask yourself:
- What type of fixed costs can we move off the balance sheet by renting them?
- What processes can we outsource?
- Is there spare capacity lying around which we could re-purpose?
