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.
Mounir Zok joined the U.S. Olympic
Committee as a Senior Sports Technologist in 2012. In his position, he develops
technological solutions for coaches to analyze athlete performances that do not
interfere with training. He also investigates solutions for staff to optimize
their work with athletes, and serves as a liaison between the sport performance
division and third-party companies and research institutes. Prior to joining the USOC, Zok helped grow a
sports technology start-up company in Italy into an internationally renowned
firm in technology development. Specifically, he led and coordinated staff and
assisted in developing businesses in foreign countries. Through innovative
thinking and scientific knowledge, he managed the team behind developing various
sports technology applications that are currently being used at a number of
sports federations in Italy.
