📌THE FACT OF THE MONTH
Sports organizations are not using their data
61% do not use data for their overall strategy
This can be concluded from the Data Maturity Model, a research conducted by Bas Schnater and Geoff Wilson. The Model has been in the making for more than 18 months and it has been tested by over fifty clubs and federations from the Premier League, La Liga, MLS, and various national football associations. The aim of the Model is to provide these and all clubs and federations with detailed insight into the data maturity of their sports organisation.
Other quick key insights:
- 37% of sports organisations have a one-year data strategy.
- Only 10% of sports organisations have communicated their data objectives across their entire organisation, with 25% communicating it only to senior staff.
- 32% of organisations never review their data objectives.
- 29% of sports organisations do not use any form of segmentation within email campaigns.
