Sports analytics has become a huge business -- from the youth sports leagues to professional sports -- and it's directly impacting the performance of the athletes and teams, including on the bottom line. Other businesses can learn from sports teams how to apply data analytics in new ways to measure business performance and even workforce productivity. Can the way the NBA measures a power forward's in-game performance translate to your company's ability to maximize sales? Can Major League Baseball's approach to scheduling help you understand how to predict supply-chain disruptions? Christina Chase, Co-Founder and Managing Director of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s Sports Lab, explains the art and the science of sports analytics and provides some eye-opening examples of how analytics have changed the games -- and how it can change your business.
