BOA Home Visual Analytics You’ve been training for years, your preparations leading up to the Games have been meticulous and when you arrive into the unknown environment of Tokyo to deliver the performance of your life, you’ve got to trust the BOA has thought of everything.  That includes the specific equipment you need in the gym, your individual nutritional requirements and your pre-games preparation schedule. Real-life throws curveballs; last minute changes happen and the team needs to be able to react quickly and effectively.  This is why we brought visual analytics to support Tokyo 2020 planning, using graphics to present and analyse mass data for easy consumption. This means the BOA can spend less time evaluating data across multiple documents and more time using insights to make informed decisions. Helping people do what they do best The 25,000 nights of accommodation, 3,000 meals a day, and 2,000 flights – taking Team GB to Tokyo takes more preparation than you might first think. We’ve been busy helping to ensure this year’s delegation is the best equipped to date, implementing visualisations to help coordinate more than 50 projects delivered by over 1,000 people to support once in a lifetime British performance. We believe that technology can help humans make better decisions. That’s why we collaborated with the BOA to use visual analytics to present their planning and operations data in a completely new way. This shift in mindset has allowed data to guide and inform conversations, bringing together separate teams to provide a complete planning picture. Visualisations now guide strategic oversight for event planning and progress reporting, providing holistic summaries to drive questions and discussion that quickly can be broken down and analysed in detail. A second suite of operational dashboards focuses on improving efficiency and supporting individual teams planning responsibilities, such as accommodation and financial planning. Working together with the BOA, we combined analytics know-how with vast Olympic experience to design a solution that consolidates and visualises planning and operational data so Team GB can be ‘Games ready’ for Tokyo 2020 and beyond.
