Effective performance management systems are essential in any successful organisation. In both commercial sport business and not-for-profit sport organisations, the pressure to follow international best practice in performance management has grown significantly in recent years. Organisational Performance Management in Sport is the first book to show how performance management concepts, tools and principles can be applied in the modern sport environment.

Linking theory and practice throughout, the book defines fundamental performance parameters impacting on sport organisations, and introduces key issues such as individual performance management through to board-level governance structures, presenting extended real-world case studies and practitioner perspectives. As such, it offers the most clear and complete outline of performance management in sport organisations available.

With case studies, insight boxes and industry examples integrated throughout the text, Organisational Performance Management in Sport offers accessible and vital reading for all sport management students, researchers and professionals with an interest in this important area of sport management research and practice.
