Coming up with a suitable name for a blog about my work with performance analysis wasn’t that simple. It sounds like it was, but it wasn’t.
Some of the candidates I had sounded way too posh and ambitious and some of them were much too difficult to remember. So I decided to go for a really simple solution…
If anyone should ask “Who’s that?” when they spot me on the sideline of a rugby pitch shooting some video, the answer would be “Oh, it’s the PA guy” if they didn’t know me by my real name already.
So… thePAguy.com it is.
Simplicity goes a long way, hopefully. 🙂
A blog is born!
Welcome to thePAguy. where I, Gunnar Mattiasson (read more about me in the About section), will write about my work as a performance analyst and numerous topics related to that role. For instance, processes, technology, coaching, leadership and so on. Occasionally I’ll have guest writers who will contribute with articles on topics they’ve specialized in.
Together we shall try to clarify what we do, why it’s important and how we do it.
Hopefully you’ll be able to pick up some tips or tricks, get inspired or at least find an article where you want to share your point of view with the rest of us by commenting.
