Would a nationwide soccer injury prevention program work? [USA]

Would a nationwide soccer injury prevention program work? [USA] | Sports Facility Management.3044618 | Scoop.it
If doing 10 simple exercises each day could dramatically drop your chances (or those of your kids) of tearing your ACL or spraining your ankle, would you try them? And if they did help, should soccer teams nationwide use them?

Matt Davis's curator insight, October 19, 2014 3:34 AM

If we apply sports ethics to the question at hand in this article, the answer is yes. The sport industry, coaches and parents should embrace anything that reduces chances of injury in sport when it is something as simple as a 15 minute 10 exercise warm-up, a warm-up that most likely already takes place just with less focus on injury prevention and more on going through the motions of a warm-up.

The Art of Risk Management

The Art of Risk Management | Sports Facility Management.3044618 | Scoop.it

In the aftermath of the global financial crisis, companies worldwide have become more focused on risk management. What was once a concern primarily of senior executives in the financial services sector has now become a top-management priority in nearly every industry.

 

In a global survey of close to 1,500 C-suite executives conducted in the summer of 2011 by Harvard Business Review Analytic Services, more than two-thirds of respondents said that risk management had become somewhat or significantly more important over the previous three years. And in a March 2012 survey of finance executives by CFO magazine, 72 percent of respondents said their companies had increased the amount of time and resources devoted to risk management over the previous two years, with 23 percent calling the increase “significant.”

 

Risk management is essential in today’s volatile economy. And yet many of the very financial firms that took such dangerous risks before the financial crisis had some of the most sophisticated risk-management operations around. What’s more, some of the very few financial companies that had been praised for their deft risk management before the financial crisis have since gone on to make major errors. One dramatic example is JPMorgan Chase, which suffered a trading loss of $2 billion in 2012 due to trades that its CEO Jamie Dimon has termed “flawed, complex, poorly reviewed, poorly executed, and poorly monitored.”
