Learn how data impacts Baseball Operations decisions with the Kansas City Royals

Join Dr. Daniel Mack and John Williams with the Kansas City Royals as they tell us how the Royals work through the pitfalls of communicating probabilistic model output in a results-based industry. You won’t want to miss this presentation as they share an inside look at decision-making in baseball.

Participants will be able to:
  • Understand that good business results come from good processes, but the long run can be uncomfortably long
  • Learn techniques for communicating risk and variance to a non-technical audience
  • Articulate advantages of leveraging large datasets and knowledge sharing to deal with incomplete present information
