Think the use of analytics hasn’t spread across all vertical industries? Ask Billy Beane – General Manager of the Oakland Athletics, inspiration behind the Oscar nominated film “Moneyball,” and headline speaker at Adaptive Live this May!
Beane is widely considered one of the most progressive and talented executives in Major League Baseball. Since taking over as General Manager of the Oakland A’s following the 1997 MLB season, Beane molded Oakland into one of professional baseball’s most consistent winners while shattering traditional MLB beliefs that big payrolls equated to more wins.
By implementing a statistical methodology, Beane led one of the
worst teams in baseball—with one of the lowest payrolls— to six American League West Division Titles. That statistical methodology has come to be known as the “Moneyball” philosophy, named for the bestselling book and Oscar nominated film chronicling Beane’s journey from General Manager to celebrated management genius.
Today, Billy Beane’s “Moneyball” philosophy has been adopted by organizations of all sizes, across all industries, as a way to more effectively, efficiently, and profitably manage their assets, talent, and resources. He has helped to shape the way modern businesses view and leverage big data and employ analytics for long-term success.
At Adaptive Live, Beane will explore his innovative, winning approach to management and leadership. Join us to hear him discuss how utilizing superior analytics enabled him to identify and re-purpose undervalued assets to ultimately drive success and competitive advantage. Discover how you can apply Beane’s powerful metaphor of baseball and use similar methodologies to also lead with insight within your organization.
