Building a culture of professionalism: making data work for us

What sets the best apart from the rest? That is a question high-performers, including those in sport, business, and most other walks of life, constantly ask of themselves. I have a theory, and it’s this: data. Data is now everywhere, each one of us has access to more data than we could ever have imagined just ten years ago. Indeed, we are drowning in it. My theory though isn’t about accessing data, it’s about capturing the right data and applying the right kind of mindset when we decide what (if anything) to do with it.
