IAN Holloway wants Millwall to start scouting in Europe for potential signings.
The Lions boss raised the idea of sending representatives to watch games in Spain, Portugal, Germany, Italy and France during a three-day meeting with the board this week.
And Holloway says that expanding the club's recruitment network – both at first-team and academy level – is key to the future development of the club under his management.
Holloway also wants to hire more staff to aid Mick Harford, Millwall's head of recruitment.
"Mick is vital to us and he's a fantastic fella," said Holloay. "He's got vast experience and this is a perfect role for him now.
"He's been really pro-active for me and now I want to get him some extra runners and some extra eyes around the place.
"I want to expand our scouting not just in this country but in other countries. I also want to be out looking at other youth teams to make sure we're picking up kids that we can develop.
"I want people in our team who are young, hungry and want to work hard. I'm delighted to have done something in the short-term by keeping us up but this is a long-term project."
Holloway will finalise Millwall's retained list before pursuing transfer targets.
"There are a few issues that need to be resolved and I am just finding out what level we are going to be at financially and what that enables me to do," he said.
"I'll have a week off to chill out and then pick up the reins again in terms of adding to the squad and finalising it for next season."
Asked about his recruitment plan, Holloway said: "It'll be geared towards building a stronger unit in the Championship, getting further up the division and then into the play-offs.
"I know what it takes to reach the play-offs in this division and I know what that excitement feels like, so I'm very keen to reach that sort of level again.
"We don't need drastic change because we've just got a good thing going and that is really important.
"We've got some belief going too so the surgery to the squad might not be as major as it looked like being a few weeks ago, which is good news for everybody."
