Workshop 1 ‘’Investigating Bias in Scouting''
Sunday January 24th, 19:00pm English time.
About: We will look to demonstrate how you could display prejudice against a player or team without really knowing it. Whether it be for good reasons or bad reasons. This is a MUST for anyone starting off in scouting and it will even enlighten the experienced scouts. We will delve into the psychology aspects of analysis when looking at players. We at IPSO believe everyone involved in football should go on this workshop whether it be scouts, coaches, analysts, agent or even the manager. Why? Simple it will stop you making mistakes that you didn’t even know you did while analysing and watching players at any level. We will point out the unnoticed Bias you may hold on or against a player that could cost you dearly in the future. We will look at this from a football perspective proving the wrongs you do without you noticing it when looking at a player.
