Marginal Gains in Sports – its relevance to managing commodity supply chains and the intelligent use of technology

The concept of identifying and delivering cumulative marginal gains as a winning strategy in sport was popularised by the Sky Cycling Team, under the management of Sir Dave Brailsford. The exceptional and sustained success of both Sky in the Tour de France / Grand Tours and Team GB Cycling in recent Olympics was built upon delivering small marginal gains in every aspect of a cyclist’s performance and the equipment used to deliver it. It is the sum of these marginal gains that provides the winning edge rather than any single “silver bullet” improvement in one factor.

Traceability and Sustainability in the Biomass Supply Chain

Sustainability is one of the main challenges faced across the biomass supply chain. Savvy consumer demand and political influence impact on this sector more than possibly any other commodity, and a breakdown in traceability can mean both reputational damage and the withdrawal of critical subsidies. Due to the serious nature of these traceability risks, meeting sustainability reporting requirements can be one of the more onerous tasks facing stakeholders in the biomass supply chain.
