Baseball Analytics: What is the most valuable lesson Major League Baseball teams could learn from start ups?

Jeff Bussgang: Start up success is all about leadership and culture. Top down. It’s not clear to me that MLB teams are focused enough on club house leadership and culture. The same collection of talent can be 10x more productive in a startup under the right leadership and operating in the right culture.

Baseball Analytics: With regards to new businesses and innovation, what do you think the theme of 2013 will be?

Jeff Bussgang: Mobile. Mobile commerce, mobile payments, mobile advertising, mobile in the enterprise, mobile everything.

Baseball Analytics:  If you were a Major League Baseball player what position would you play and what would your at bat theme song be?

Jeff Bussgang: I’ve always enjoyed the hot corner, 3rd base, which is my spot on my “Kiddush cup” championship synagogue softball team. My at bat theme song would be Twisted Sister’s “Stay Hungry”.
