Moneyball: Lessons for Life & Business from Baseball's Best GM
- Billy Beane, Vice President and General Manager, Oakland Athletics
Billy Beane explores his innovative, winning approach to management and leadership. He explains how to win against companies that have bigger budgets, more manpower, and higher profiles by utilizing analytics to identify and re-purpose undervalued assets. Beane uses the powerful metaphor of baseball, but his genius lies in his ability to draw striking parallels to almost any industry. Beane’s inspiring tale, a modern day David vs. Goliath, is an unforgettable talk, a brilliant confluence of baseball and business success that teaches what it really takes to succeed 'big" with limited resources.
