What “Moneyball” Can Teach You About Competing As A Small School

Accomplish a Lot with a LittleMany of you have either seen or heard about the 2011 movie Moneyball starring Brad Pitt and Jonah Hill. The story line follows Pitt and Hill’s characters as they use a unique statistical methodology to turn around a failing and flailing 2002 Oakland A’s pro baseball team that has very little money compared to the NY Yankees-type behemoths of the league.

Sound familiar? If you are a small college, I’ll bet you feel like the 2002 Oakland A’s. How are you supposed to compete for the same high caliber students with such a meager (in proportion) budget?

Last Thursday, TWG Plus president Scott Novak presented a webinar titled “Accomplish a Lot with a Little.” This timely, insight-laden webinar, the first in a 5-part series, offers tips, tricks and low-cost best practices to help small schools compete more effectively at more reasonable costs.

We’re making this 30-minute webinar available at no cost for our small college friends and colleagues (just don’t tell the big schools). As you check out the webinar, ask yourself these questions…

  • Can I duplicate these success stories at my school?
  • Do I want to be our school’s home-run hitter in scoring more with less?
  • Does Scott Novak look anything like Brad Pitt?

We’d love to hear what you think!
