Chris Domogalla believes Norwich City's Championship fightback underlines lessons have been learned from Premier League relegation.
The Canaries look on course to plot an instant top flight return, and City's head of performance, who overseas the club's fitness and sport science department, says should they achieve a second promotion under Daniel Farke they will be better equipped next time around.
“The experience we had is something that nobody can take away," he said. "With that experience, there might be small decisions that we make differently but nonetheless, we want to perform with the style that the club wants so we can represent the area, the community and what it stands for.
“Do we need to find the small margins just to make a different end scenario next time? Probably, and I’m pretty sure we will."
City's relegation from the Premier League last season was particularly disappointing and painful for supporters.
After Project Restart, they failed to pick up a single point and lost 10 matches on the spin before the season concluded.
Domogalla, speaking to Playermaker at the Training Ground Guru recovery conference, explained that the challenge last summer was about rediscovering the players' motivation and willingness to attack the challenge ahead.

This season has been unlike any other in terms of schedule and the sheer volume of matches, but City remain on course to achieve their objective of automatic promotion.
“For me personally, psychologically it’s the hardest turnaround. You have to get settled again and find that motivation again as quick as possible so you can attack the league. You have to shake the blues off after being relegated and you need time to process it.
“Given how last season ended for us and the short turnaround, we had some processes in place relatively early to engage our players for the mission ahead. The disappointment settled quickly and we could attack it.
“At this stage of the season, we can only say it worked well and hopefully it will continue.”
