Finding future high performers is the great challenge of 'intuition' vs 'data'. This is the 'expert' coach/selector. They can read deeper into the athletes potential. They may not be able to describe why but they 'know it when they see it'. This is common in experts.
It drives scientists crazy.
Signals (evidence) and scenarios (experience) is the magic combination to balance.
Evidence/data alone can miss the interconnections. Scenarios/experience alone can miss the signals that matter.
The magic is in the middle.
Narrow and wide every day is the lens of high performance.
Does your system have balance?
