Leverage: Create Skunkwork Projects In Your Company

  1. 1. Leverage ThreeFortyNine.com
  2. 2. Leverage & Control Businesses have an ongoing tension between leverage and control. Established businesses with understood business models demand control, often at the expense of leverage. New projects and businesses, with yet to be determined models, require massive leverage. The starting up phase is about the opposite of control. It's about leverage points, domain expertise and unfair advantages. ThreeFortyNine.com
  3. 3. Innovation and Disruption Technology is disrupting your industry. Your business can lead, participate, or get used to life in the rearview mirror. Every company must innovate now. Every company needs to engage in entrepreneurship. No exceptions. ThreeFortyNine.com
  4. 4. The Players Some Bad News: Hiring the creative, visionary, exceptionally talented and self motivated entrepreneur types is difficult to impossible. They are working daily on becoming entrepreneurs. Some Good News: Becoming an entrepreneur is difficult, risky and financially challenging - which is why many entrepreneurs bring their talents to short term projects. Some Great News: We know them because we are them. Hiring us into full-time positions may not be possible but our abilities can make the difference between the acceptable and the exceptional.

What role can your business play? How large is the opportunity? How disruptive is it? 3) Skunkworks: We work with you to create a multi-disciplinary team to execute on the projects that survive step 2. ThreeFortyNine.com
