All that said, the best managers and GMs, like the best executives, won't necessarily be the biggest data geeks. Data analytics is an extremely important and valuable tool, but there's no substitute for leadership and hands-on experience.

Agreed. The best leaders have one eye on gut instinct and one eye on data. It takes both to win.

But I would say if there's an unresolvable conflict between your gut and the data, go with the data.

I think you hit the nail on the head, Shane. GMs in baseball are still looking for managers who know the game, just as the C-suite is still looking for managers who understand their businesses. It's just that a bigger and bigger part of understanding the game (or your business) is understanding what the data is telling you about your players (or your products).
