Subject: QUERY: Substitute for "leverage"

All:
The Microsoft Manual of Style for Technical Publications says to replace the word "leverage" with "use": does anyone have any experience using this term? Is it acceptable to substitute "use"/"using" for "leverage"/"leveraging" in all situations (i.e., situations other than producing software documentation)? Here is the sentence:
In the knowledge era, the XXXX will achieve market leadership by leveraging collective knowledge to creat value.

My thanks for your assistance.
T.B. Booth
