Using Data Correctly - How Do You Tell The Team?

If I were to deliver a presentation 5 years ago, I would have focused it on data collection tools and methodology. Today, this process is seamless; today, it is extremely easy to get hold of vital, physiological and activity data. Our present challenge is really about the system that holds the data together and to answer a very simple question: how might we help our clients/partners benefit from reliable and easy-to-understand information. Within this context, human-centered design and lean development principles can prove to be major assets. I will be sharing with you some stories from our US Olympic teams inspired by these assets.
