I am trying to cme up with a systematic way to measure how effective a GM is doing their job. I started by trying to figure out what GM´s objective is:
1.) Lower their teams cap
2.) acquire players that make their team more competitive.
3.) Keep salary slugs ie cap penalties to a minimum.
The most I can think of is when you make a trade that lowers your cap, you get a bonus from the owners.
making a trade that highers your cap affects affects your bonus because you won´t get one
At the end of the season, your overall cap situation will determine your bonus from the owner.
I need some more ideas so if you can add to this, that would be great.
For instance, I´m measuring an Agent based upon how many clients he represents and how much he signs his clients for. SO say an Agent gets 10 million for Billups starting. For our purposes, Billups pays his agent a 3% commission, so Billups agent made $300,000 for his sports agency. at the End of the year, the agent who makes the most money for their agency should be considered for Agent of the year.
