It’s not as complicated as you think – Marginal gains is often a topic that people don’t think they understand, however it’s simply the idea that improving what you do by a tiny fraction, say 1%, will bring great rewards further down the line in terms of end product. For example, if you were to cut spending by 1% as a business, the overall effect over the next 6-12 months will have a positive, long lasting effect.

The results are extremely effective – Whether in business or sport, end results are what matter the most, so if you can make a change which provides a positive influence on results then you’re heading in the right direction. Marginal gains can take you that tiny step ahead of your competition, and result in you winning that all important race or reaching more customers and making more sales.

Many business people and sports coaches use this process – Marginal gains has taken over the sporting world with some of the world’s finest athletes and coaches adopting this approach. Bonita Norris, who is the youngest person to reach both ‘tops of the world’, believes that achieving those marginal gains is extremely important when developing your training regime.

Achieving silver in badminton at the 2004 Athens Olympic Games, she trained harder than every to find the tiny differences that would take her ahead of her competition, and with the development of sports science today, sees this as being an area which can only develop further.
