"Marginal gains is not about making small changes and hoping they fly. Rather, it is about breaking down a big problem into small parts in order to rigorously establish what works and what doesn’t. Ultimately the approach emerges from a basic property of empirical evidence: to find out if something is working, you must isolate its effect. Controlled experimentation is inherently “marginal” in character."- Matthew Syed, Black Box Thinking
Matthew Syed is a British former table tennis player, journalist, broadcaster and author best known for competeing in two Olympic Games (1992 and 2000) and his best-selling books (e.g., Black Box Thinking).Related Posts:
