Human Resource Management in Olympic Sport Organisations Summary


Human Resource Management in Olympic Sport Organisations by Packianathan Chelladurai

This book is the third volume in the "MEMOS programme" series. This third volume provides managers who are involved with Olympic-related structures with information they need to understand these unique human resource considerations of Olympic organisations where a wide variety of constituents, from organisers and athletes to volunteers and professional workers, play vital roles. Topics in this book include organisational justice, staffing, leadership, performance appraisal, reward systems, empowerment of workers, management of diversity and handling of conflict. Case studies in the book showcase the complexity of human resource management, eschewing a global template in favour of giving readers the opportunity to develop their own systems that provide guidelines that are flexible but practical, solution-based action. Readers will be introduced to the classic HR topic of leadership, including author, Chelladurai's renowned multi-dimensional model of leadership. By the end of the book, managers will be able to feel comfortable with inevitable change and diversity within organisations and be better prepared to make strategic decisions that benefit their sport organisation or Olympic organisation.
