You can add that to a shared document like a google spreadsheet that your appropriate team members can see, then evaluate at the end of each month to see how you can improve.

2:30-3:30pm No Plutonium?! Surviving without Product
Doom and gloom or wine and roses, the future can be viewed through many lenses, but one thing we know is that for the immediate future, we are having trouble getting products, equipment, materials, parts, and even trucks, not to mention employees. It’s time to evaluate powerful methods of surviving without things we took for granted a few years ago. Step one: determine what products or services you are capable of offering to consumers. Step 2: prioritize them in terms of the most profitable offers with the least available inventory. Example: maybe you can’t get water heaters in your area for the next 8 months. Can you teach solar water heating methods and get paid for it? Or could you put together water heating “kits” that you could sell to consumers? Or maybe “Build your own solar water heater out of things in your garage.” This costs you very little to produce, and the profit is extreme once it is an automated product. I want to show you 7 extreme methods to be profitable in a supplier famine.
