We aim to develop tools that address key theoretical concepts, increase self-reflection and provides professionals with the knowledge and skills they require to make effective talent identification judgements. This, in turn, should improve processes, consistency and thus alignment between recruiters, coaches and their clubs.

The first phase is to develop the Scouting Efficacy Scale in football (SES-F).
