Agile Discovery Phase: The Ultimate Guide

“Discovery” is a term used to describe an introductory phase of a project focused on aligning expectations, exploring assumptions and agreeing on goals and scope. Those in the know often shorten this term to “Disco”, but rest assured they're not dancing to multicoloured swirling lights - rather, they are collaboratively agreeing on the desired outcomes of the project and then defining the work and delivery plan to achieve those outcomes.

Predicting elite cricket performance with data science

Cricket Australia’s goal was to explore the value and possibility of accurately predicting elite batting performance in One Day International cricket (ODI) based on junior performance data. In practical terms, coaches wanted to explore if advanced analytics could assist them to identify which junior players may have the potential to become elite professional players in the future. We didn’t explore predictions of elite ODI bowling success due to the short time frame of the project.
