Texas Rangers Show Corporate Talent Management & HR Executives That Moneyball Is Not Just For Baseball

From April 27-28, some of the country’s leading talent management executives will gather at the home of the Texas Rangers, Globe Life Park in Arlington, TX, for TalentBall, a two-day event focused on how to effectively apply successful “moneyball” tactics to drive talent and business results.

“The Best Practice Institute was founded on providing talent management executives with a forum to share and learn best practices in the field.” said Louis Carter, Founder & CEO of the Best Practice Institute. “It is no secret that Major League Baseball has led the way in effectively using analytics to make talent decisions, so the choice was obvious when looking at who should teach our members.”

Over two days CHRO’s, Heads of Analytics and other talent management professionals will hear proven tactics and strategies from Rangers’ executives including General Manager Jon Daniels, CFO Kellie Fischer, Assistant General Manager Thad Levine, Director of HR Mercedes Riley, Director of Baseball Analytics Todd Slavinsky, and others.

They’ll join talent management thought leaders like Louis Carter, Dr. John Sullivan, and Cecile Alper-Leroux from Ultimate Software to bridge the gap between what has worked in professional baseball and how it can be applied to the corporate world.

During the event, participants will share methods, models and equations behind the game of talent data, analytics, and metrics, and connect the success that major league baseball has proven directly to a model that can be implemented into corporate talent practices. Participants will also see the Rangers’ talent decisions in action as they take in the game against the Yankees on Wednesday night.

A portion of all proceeds of the event will be donated to the Texas Rangers foundation.

Says Carter, “Thanks to the leadership of our great partner Bob Beaudine, CEO of Eastman-Beaudine, and Texas Rangers Foundation Board member who has made this all possible.”
