The goal of every leaders out there is creating something that is robust, flexible and reusable. Creating anything like that requires lot of planning and forecasting.
So when you create something like that you require lot of reusable components. So what is reuse management at first. In simple words it is creating something once and using it everywhere, i.e centralizing the content and managing them.
What is the use of reuse management? They help in centralizing the content which causes maintaining them too easy and simple, which also helps in adapting your content as and when required.
How to create something that can be reused? To create something something that can be reused needs entire knowledge on application or business. Only when entire business is known then only people can think and produce something that is more reusable and usable.
Everything you create should be reusable and generic.
What a leader has to do with reuse? Reuse requires proper planning and perfect knowledge on business. Only a leader has the responsibility to create something like that. As said before a leader is a good planner and they should be repository of knowledge. They have to forecast and explain the team on the functionality that can be reused. Here it is not a responsibility of leader to explain everything whichever can be reused. But they should check whether the progress goes in the right way. Making reuse components actually helps the organization a better output. Also a generic component makes itself as a product in the market.
For example, Ipod is a component, which by default itself is a product which was integrated into Iphone and Ipad. That is everything we create or we want to create should be both component and product which not only gives you business but also enhances your business.
REUSE is using the USE again, to make sure your product is perfect and maintainable, it projects the ability of leaders.
