What is the meaning of Leverage point?

A leverage point is where a small difference can make a large difference. Leverage points provide kernel ideas and procedures for formulating solutions. Identifying a leverage point helps us:

  • create new courses of action;

  • develop increased awareness of those things that may cause a difficulty before there are any obvious signs of trouble, and figure out what is causing a difficulty.
