Originally named after a UK student, the "Gain" approach involves completing a task using the least effort possible.
Usually applied to programming, it relies on templates, copying large chunks of code, and limiting functionality to decrease production time.
So long as the output meets the minimum test criteria, it is considered a success.
Person 1 : How are you ever going to finish your project by the end of the week
Person 2 : Easy I shall just use the "Gain" approach.
