Sport management: Strategic planning of the resources for the welfare of athletes
Author(s): Dr. Miteshkumar G Vagh
Managing sport organizations at the start of the twenty-first century involves the application of techniques and strategies evident in the majority of modern business, government and non-profit organizations. Sport managers engage in strategic planning, manage large numbers of paid and voluntary human resources, deal with broadcasting contracts worth billions of dollars, manage the welfare of elite athletes who sometimes earn 100 times the average working wage, and work within highly integrated global networks of international sports federations, national sport organizations, government agencies, media corporations, sponsors and community organizations. Students seeking a career as a sport manager need to develop an understanding of the special features of sport and its allied industries, the environment in which sport organizations operate, and the types of sport organizations that operate in the public, non-profit and professional sectors of the sport industry. The remainder of the paper is devoted to a discussion of these points and highlights the unique aspects of sport organization management.
