The power of tiny gains

Even better leaders
Even better strategies
Even more successful companies

Kaizen continuous improvement

Our members are already very competent leaders. Sadly, those who most need to join never do so because they are too busy. They don’t realise that they will never break out of that busy cycle without mastering how to lead more and do less. Unfortunately, they may end up with a business that plateaus.

Our members realise that (just as with continuous improvement applied to manufacturing and distribution) there is always room to raise their game, be an even better leader and achieve even better results for their business.

So, our goal in organising and running meetings is to help you raise your game one step at a time. We hope that every meeting inspires you in some way to raise your game and improve your business by doing just one different thing or one thing differently. 

Joining MD2MD and debating real business challenges with people like you will help you develop even smarter strategies, make even better decisions, and engage and enthuse your staff to perform even better in pursuit of your ambitious vision. 

The tiny gains graph

“The whole principle came from the idea that if you broke down everything you could think of… and then improved it by 1%, you will get a significant increase when you put them all together”

David Brailsford

Performance Director British Cycling 8th August 2012

At MD2MD we believe in this principle, and want to help you to become the best leader you can be, step by step, every step of the way.
