There are some huge differences between the sport of a few decades ago and the sport of today. One of the things that have seen many changes is sports management. Technology has meant that managers now carry out their work in many different ways. It has improved communication, documentation and the ability to analyze performance. Here are some of the key ways that tech has changed sports management.
Communication in sports management is much more instant today, just like it is in any other arena. People now not only carry a personal phone with them, but that phone is also essentially a computer. They can contact anyone instantly by phone or using the internet. Social media is another key method of communication that has changed how sports managers operate.
The process to record sports footage just a few decades ago was slow and laborious. Today, like many things, it’s an almost instant process. Any sports manager can use a handheld device to record footage and watch it back instantly. This greatly improves their ability to view and share a video of players.
Use of Analytics
Sports analytics helps managers to make more informed choices about building a better team. Today’s technology allows for the easier collection and analyzing of data. Nothing has to be done with pen and paper or with slow and simplistic computers. It’s all very sophisticated and plays a huge part in sports management. It can help teams to win games by influencing key decisions.
