Managing the Paralympics( )

11 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and German and held by 288 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book critically examines the planning, management, and operations of the world's premier event for Para sport athletes. Noting a lack of research into how these games are planned and managed, the authors of this contributed volume discuss how the Paralympics are essentially different to the Olympics and what this means for their management. Managing the Paralympics explores how the organizers and connected stakeholders effectively organize and deliver the Paralympics, taking into account what has been learned from previous events. Including emergent models of best practice from event management, project management and sport management literature, the book gives an insight into the planning of one of the world's biggest sporting events that encompasses ten impairment types and multiple sport classes within sports."--Page 4 of cover
Managing the Olympics( )

8 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 223 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Olympics Games are the biggest and most significant mega-sport event in the world. Planning and then staging the Olympic Games is a highly complex task which is exasperated by the fact that the Games are continually moving and not held consecutively in the same city. This means that start-up knowledge is required for each Olympics. Given the massive scale, scope and complexity of the Games it is surprising that very little research has been published that explores how the event is managed and organised. While the Games themselves are held over two weeks, the planning and preparation from bid stage to completion can be more than a decade in the making. The express purpose of this volume is to critically examine the planning, management and operation of the Olympic Games as the world's premier mega-sport event. The authors analyse and discuss how Olympic organisers and related stakeholders might effectively manage and deliver the Games, taking into account what has been learned from previous Olympics as well as the emergence of models of best practice from the management, project management and sport management literature"--
Managing sport mega-events by Stephen Frawley( )

17 editions published between 2015 and 2017 in English and held by 170 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La 4e de couv. indique: "Managing Sport Mega-Events explores global developments in the management of sport mega-events. Sport mega-events such as the Olympic Games and the Football World Cup have been examined from a number of academic perspectives including history, sociology, politics, urban planning and economics. What is lacking, however, is a book which identifies and evaluates the current issues and complexities faced by those charged with the responsibility of managing these sport mega-events. This book fills the gap. The book addresses three broad but interconnected themes. First, strategic matters are explored focusing on the rise of sport mega-events, the management of stakeholders and governance issues. Second, how organisers can best ensure the sustainable management of sport mega-events is considered. Third, operational matters and related issues are examined including media management, broadcast management, venue management, risk management, marketing and sponsorship management. The book draws on leading international sport management scholars, each of whom has expertise in the organisation of sport mega-events. It makes a valuable contribution to the existing literature."
Critical issues in global sport management by Nico Schulenkorf( )

11 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 168 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The social, cultural and economic significance of sport has never been more evident than it is today. Adopting a critical management perspective, this book examines the most important themes and challenges in global sport management. From match-fixing, doping, bribery and corruption to corporate social responsibility, governance, and new media, it helps students, researchers and practitioners to understand the changing face of the global sport industry. Written by leading international sport management experts, Critical Issues in Global Sport Management includes twenty chapters and real-life case studies from around the world. It examines contemporary governance and management issues as well as the ethical challenges faced by the global sport industry, including questions of integrity and accountability in recent drug scandals that have been widely reported and debated. This book deals with such questions and many more, highlighting the fact that the global sport system is in urgent need of new and innovative solutions to these ongoing problems
Managing the football world cup by Stephen Frawley( )

8 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and held by 146 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Football World Cup is one of the biggest global sporting events. Along with the Summer Olympic Games, the Football World Cup can be truly called a mega-sport event. Both events attract billions of dollars in broadcast and sponsorship contracts and millions of spectators every four years when the events are staged. Nations and cities around the world desperately seek to host both events. By doing so host nations and cities often justify the multi-billion dollar investment required to stage these events on economic development grounds with stated benefits to emerge from urban renewal, transport infrastructure and tourism development. Given the size of the Football World Cup and its economic impact it is surprising that this book is the first attempt to bring leading international mega-sport event researchers together to examine the management and organizational components of the event. Managing the Football World Cup follows in the same path as the editors' previous publication, Managing the Olympics, in exploring areas often overlooked by project management and business studies researchers. Therefore considering the global impact of the Football World Cup it is time for a detailed examination of the planning, organization, management, implementation and related commercial features of this mega-sport event."

"This book explores the global developments in sport leadership and practice. Drawing on the vast and ever growing leadership literature, the book examines advances in leadership theory and practice in the context of the challenges faced by those working in global sport management positions. The book explores the various dimensions of leadership with a particular focus on the development of leadership theory. It also looks at the operational and contextual elements of leadership in a global sport environment and finally reflects on the status quo and explores future challenges and research opportunities for leadership and global sport management"--

Quantifying the value of sport broadcast rights( )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Although sport broadcasting has received a considerable amount of academic attention, how sport content is valued and monetised from a broadcaster perspective remains relatively underdeveloped. This article adopts multisided market theory to test the broadcast value of Australia’s two most valuable sport broadcasting properties, the Australian Football League and the National Rugby League. To do so, a content and ratings analysis was performed to quantify the interaction between content and viewership within broadcasts. The article concludes that innate game dynamics have a significant bearing on the value generated for broadcasters from sport content. Advertising aired during intermissions generated audiences 23% lesser than advertising within the match itself. Notably, the National Rugby League’s most valuable timeslot was a delayed telecast, which although potentially reducing the audience size, allowed for an increase in the concentration of advertising within the telecast
