    Abstract

    El diseño y configuración de los equipos deportivos se realiza de acuerdo con los objetivos establecidos por la institución a la que pertenecen. En este trabajo se analiza la configuración de los equipos y la eficacia en la consecución de éxitos deportivos tomando como referencia el índice de diversificación de Gollop y Monahan. Se plantea un modelo en el que los componentes de dicho índice se incorporan como variables explicativas de los resultados obtenidos por los equipos. La estimación del modelo se realiza con la técnica de clasificación ‘regression tree’, la muestra queda configurada por todos los equipos de las ediciones de la Liga de Primera División, de 2003/04 a 2010/11. Los resultados obtenidos en este trabajo, ponen de manifiesto especialmente la relevancia del equipo y las estrategias como modelo dominante en los equipos que han alcanzado el máximo nivel en esta competición.
