This paper presents the issue of the usage of statistics in sport clubs players management and its possible transfer to talented employees management. The main aim of the study is to present the genesis and discuss the example of usage of the statistical analysis in management of sport talents, as well as, the implication of this solution from the sport to the ground of organization and management theory, in order to extend the set of existing talent assessment techniques. The most important conclusion from this theoretical study reveals, that assessment based on statistical analysis, widely used in sport, can be adopted into business - for assessment of talented employees, because it is more precise and objective than traditional, more subjective assessment conducted by a manager or HR specialist. Authors make their reflections on the basis of in-depth literature studies. The article has been supplemented by the case study which uses the statistical analysis. (original abstract)
