Book Description:

What makes a sport enterprise successful? How can managers working in sport improve organizational effectiveness through strategic behaviour management? This comprehensive and accessible textbook addresses these important questions and examines the theories that underpin organizational analysis in sport. Helping both students and practitioners to understand the different types of behaviour that occur within a sports enterprise, it also demonstrates how to develop ways of managing behaviour more effectively for the benefit of all stakeholders.

The book explores behaviour on individual, interpersonal, group and whole-organization levels, and presents an evidence-based framework for analysis built around key concepts such as:

    • Change and culture
  • Leadership
  • Motivation, rewards and incentives
  • Power and influence
  • Conflict, disputes and grievances
  • Equity, diversity and inclusion.

With international case studies, learning objectives, review questions and guides to further reading included in every chapter, no other textbook develops critical skills or an awareness of ethical issues in such detail and depth. Organizational Behaviour in Sport is essential reading for all students and practitioners working in sport, leisure or recreation management.
