My company once offered me a huge cash bonus, per delivered project, as an incentive to release products faster.
I refused, because I go to work to play around, get smarter, and make the clients happy.
Just pointing out that your monetary motivation might not works as well as you'd expect.

Also, there's something missing in your list:
*** every iteration you reduce the amount of code you need to maintain

If you work towards the simplest solution that is still economically viable, you'll stumble upon the core values of your sub-domain, sooner rather than later.
Once you find those, you can re-align your business practices and reduce the amount of people you need.
Of course, instead of firing anyone, you should branch out instead to a related sub-domain.

Diversify whenever you have nothing to loose, so you don't get blind-sighted by rising oligopolies in your sub-domain.
