In my first data analytics class, I used one of my favourite examples of analytics and statistics on the field and in the management office, the movie Moneyball. The premise is that using statistics and predictive analytics, player performance can be improved, sometimes in a more effective way than going on instinct alone. I like the movie because it shows real world application of the concepts we were discussing in class, and because it was based on a true story (in fact, one team, using these controversial methods, went on to win the World Series).
