English term or phrase: leverage
Definition from BusinessDictionary.com:
Ability to influence a system, or an environment, in a way that multiplies the outcome of one's efforts without a corresponding increase in the consumption of resources. In other words, leverage is an advantageous-condition of having a relatively small amount of cost yield a relatively high level of returns. Thus, "doing a lot with a little.” See also financial leverage and operating leverage.

Example sentence(s):
  • Most companies use debt to finance operations. By doing so, a company increases its leverage because it can invest in business operations without increasing its equity. investopedia.com
  • So, the first step in getting leverage to work for you is to get the highest possible return from your commercial activities. jimconnolly.com
  • Leverage can be experienced through aligning yourself with other businesses that compliment you, your values, your beliefs, and your products or services risingwomen.com
