A Fulcrum Is the Support About Which a Lever Pivots
A lever amplifies an input force to provide a greater output force, which is said to provide leverage.
The Levers in my model – yours may differ – include these 12:
- The Process Itself
- Human Awareness Knowledge Skills
- Human Physical Attributes
- Human Psychological Attributes
- Human Intellectual Attributes
- Human Personal Values
- Environmental Data & Information
- Environmental Materials & Supplies
- Environmental Tools & Equipment
- Environmental Facilities & Grounds
- Environmental Budget & Headcount
- Environmental Culture & Consequences
Leadership sets the goals and provides the financial resources needed to improve and operate the Levers.
Management monitors goal achievement and manages the financial resources needed for the human and environmental assets to improve and operate.
Teams bring together special skill-sets to work toward goal achievement by utilizing all human and environmental assets in the processes.
Individuals contribute their special skill-sets to work within teams toward goal achievement by utilizing all human and environmental assets in the processes.
Everyone is a fulcrum to support the levers which amplify input forces to provide a greater output force, which provides leverage.
