About this Case Study

In this case study, I will talk through some examples of the challenges my team faced whilst working with Olympic and Paralympic athletes to monitor and improve their health, wellness and performance. I will share some of the techniques we adopted to deal with difficult stakeholders and their assumptions, how we evolved the solution quickly and how being user-centred was at the heart of everything we did.
