MOD 034: Save Your Race with Measures and Metrics
Merchants of Dirt Episode #34
You will never effectively adapt your races to unforeseen problems if you don’t have any measures or metrics to base decisions on. I explore the process of deciding how to break up a race day category that had too many racers, and the advantages having (and not having) data gave me.
The Decision Metric
Do you have a system for collecting data about your races? Do you look at the numbers, analyze your situation, and make sure everything is going as planned?
If you’ve promoted more than one race, you have plenty of data at your fingertips. But if you never sit down and turn that data into information, you may not be seeing trends that make that data useful.
Worse yet, you may miss opportunities that good data analysis will give you too. In this episode, I’m going to show you why measures and metrics are important, how you can turn your data into useful information, and they how to use that information to make data driven decisions that matter when they need to matter!
Or you could keep doing what you’ve always done and use your gut feelings to base all your decision on.
That’s never let you down, right?
