With the best of intentions, lots of bad (but avoidable) decisions compound to create tools that are messy, hard to use and hard to update.
Practitioner built tools for data capture, reports or databases, are normally great at solving the practitioners immediate problem.
Unfortunately, rarely do they consider the wider organisation context (or even other users outside the original author …)
Practitioners also struggle to make the time to improve their tools that would make them really valuable assets for the team.
Not because they couldn’t with some support but because of the urgency of the day job. The relentless pressure to “just get the next report out-the-door.”
Everyone is doing their best of course but you wonder if there is a better, more efficient, more effective way?
External consultancy’s deliver great solutions here but they come at a cost.
With projects taking many weeks and the cheapest rates in excess of £500 per day, even the simplest innovation project ends up costing teams thousands and thousands.
Often this is simply the best way forward (and clearly we’ve built a business doing it) but it isn’t always.
What can you do then?
It is not just the cost either.
Traditionally consultancy’s offer little transfer of “know-how” back to their customers.
Yes, new the tools can dramatically improve areas of performance.
Unfortunately though your sports team’s “Organisational Data IQ” remains static.
Next time you come up against a similar problem or you want to update what you’ve already got, you are (again) stuck.
Technologies are also moving-on fast.
Your staff can feel pigeonholed and left behind.
We’ve worked with many practitioners who are considering leaving their teams only to have the opportunity to break the cycle and develop new skills.
You see the need to invest in your technical staff to keep them. But how?
What is going to be effective?
Where can you turn to for support from people who really understand high-performance sporting environments?
What if your team did have trusted help, support and guidance, to significantly improve your data, spreadsheets and reports?
Wouldn’t it be better if you could get help from people who really understood how high-performance Sports work?
What if you could get the same high quality, professional level reporting tools you’d normally outsource but at a fraction of the cost?
Imagine how much more your most technical staff could contribute if they were nurtured and guided on how to professionally innovate.
Better reports, delivered more effortlessly, do make a big difference to a Sports Team’s performance.
- develop a deeper understanding of the sport,
- foster great relationships with coaches, management and athletes.
- save significant time and money, through better informed, more efficiently reached decisions.
If your practitioners had personalised, step-by-step guidance on what to do next, to develop themselves, their tools and your team’s processes, plus, get instant help whenever they were stuck, imagine how much more they could offer.
