Can someone suggest a word :

"Its not about having the best resources,its about <maximum> utilizing the resources you already have"

I can use completely,fully,effectively etc but I want a word that has similar meaning to 'maximum'.
I dont want to use ' maximally'(if that's a word).

Also, feel free to suggest any improvement in the sentence in bold.

Why don't you want to use the obvious choice?

I just want to know other words that I can use.Also Do you think the complete sentence is correct.You may rephrase the sentence it not.I want to be completely accurate as well as effective.

... it's about maximzing.
...it's about optimizing...
... it's about leveraging ...
(the last one is "business speak" and I don't much like it, but you'll hear it.)

Also "It's" not "Its" - both uses.

Thats it!I was looking for something that I can use before the word 'utilizing'. Optimally sounds better than maximally.I am going to use it but you may suggest similar words.Only when we try to improve something we find the better alternatives!

"It's not about having the best resources,it's about optimally utilizing the resources you already have"

No, say that it's about "optimizing the resources" not "optimally utilizing."

Maybe add something about leveraging synergy, too. ;-)
