Cincinnati Bengals Take a ‘Moneyball’ Approach to Talent Evaluation

Cincinnati Bengals Take a ‘Moneyball’ Approach to Talent Evaluation | HR Analytics and Big Data @ Work | Scoop.it
The success of the Oakland A's in using data to evaluate baseball players has inspired the Cincinnati Bengals to bring a similar approach to the gridiron.
Tony Brugman (Bright & Company)'s insight:

'Moneyball' does not work in the NFL. Football is not baseball. "At least that was the prevailing wisdom."

 

Now, inspired by 'Moneyball' the Cincinnati Bengals experimented with exploring the use of data analytics to predict the performance of players. "Starting with the 2015 season, the team will use data to assess all the players on the team and free agents and generate two scores: How much do they contribute on the field and how durable are they?"


Great example of talent analytics!

A new International Institute of Analytics research report, sponsored by SAS, details leading-edge player and team performance analytics -- and more.
Tony Brugman (Bright & Company)'s insight:

Some insights from a recent report by Tom Davenport about Analytics in Sports: The New Science of Winning. Davenport describes five "frontier" analytics applications, only used by a few sport teams aggressively today. These five sports analytics applications are:


1) Analytics on video

2) Analytics on location/biometric data

3) Gathering and using proprietary data on players

4) Engaging players in analytics

5) Open data analysis by fans


If sport teams can use them, why not business or HR?
