Sharing insights and decision-making experiences

Braidwood is my St Mary Mead and Lake Wobegon. It is a place where I can ponder events way beyond this small rural New South Wales town and connect with them through events in the town. This weekend, the Braidwood Festival has been helping me reflect on thoughts about insights and decision-making shared by Jacquie Tran. Jacquie's presentation, From insights to decisions: Knowledge sharing in sports analytics, has stimulated lots of interest and conversations. One of the observations Jacquie has made is: Enter Braidwood into this conversation. This weekend, the Festival of Braidwood has included an airing of quilts, an Art on the Farms...

Sharing insights

Jacqie Tran gave a presentation at the recent Sports Performance Research Institute New Zealand pre-conference. Her presentation was titled From insights to decisions: Knowledge sharing in sports analytics and has been uploaded to Slideshare. I thought this was a great topic to choose. It is an excellent way to share a learning journey and invite others to reflect on their practices. I have been following Jacquie's work for a number of years and see her as a very important voice in a community of practice that I hope might become a sport version of the R-Ladies movement. R-Ladies is a diversity initiative...

A Fra Mauro kind of week

Fra Mauro was a cartographer. He lived in the Republic of Venice in the fifteenth century. I found out about him in James Cowan's (1997) A Mapmaker's Dream. In that account, Fra Mauro welcomed visitors from all over the world in his monastery and used their news to develop his map of the world. I loved the idea that he could be in Venice and yet be connected with voyages of discovery and established trade routes. I had a Fra Mauro feeling this week in rural New South Wales. Social media, particularly Twitter, brought me news of adventures elsewhere. Jacquie Tran was on...

Thinking about analytics

A line in Colin Beer’s Learning analytics and magic beans (1 March 2018) “Learning analytics requires a learning approach …” sent me off thinking about how discussions about learning analytics in education might facilitate conversations about analytics in sport. I produced this slide deck to think out loud: Photo Credit Making Sense Of The Data: For You And Your Coach (Jacquie Tran, 2014)

What is it we do in Performance Analysis?

One of Jacquie Tran's delightful sketchnotes appeared in my Twitter feed a couple of days ago ... https://twitter.com/jacquietran/status/893271086896357376 It coincided with a message I received from Jamie Coles and the subsequent guest posts that appeared on Clyde Street today. Doug's definition of performance analysis includes 'insight', 'information' and 'decisions'. Jacquie's note of his definition sent me off thinking about some other words too ... 'augmentation', 'support' and 'actionable'. In my thinking, I returned to two seminal papers from the same year, 1991, that helped me reflect on what the craft of performance analysis might involve at the time I was establishing the Centre...
