Shawn Siegele looks at six fundamental elements for maintaining the flexibility in startups that will let you build decade-long dynasties. 

As we hit training camp, new dynasty leagues will be sprouting up all over the place. I just had the privilege of drafting new RV TriFlex leagues with Patrick Kerrane and Matt Jones. From draft slot to draft style to trade culture, the two startups couldn’t have been more different.

In today’s lesson, we’ll look at the six key elements for maintaining flexibility early in drafts, and I’ll detail their importance for navigating two wildly divergent startup scenarios. We’ll incorporate two recent lessons and introduce four additional tactics that will allow you to flourish in any draft environment.

You can execute the fundamental principles of the Permanent Championship Window in every startup, but how those principles manifest will often be very different. A one-size-fits-all draft plan will leave you with far less overall value than an approach with multiple levels of built-in flexibility.

This was my favorite lesson to write, and I even had to cut 1,000 words and spin off a few ideas for future lessons.
