SIR/CAR Analysis Technique for Voluntary School Sport or Amateur Athletic Organizations. A SIR/CAR Application.
Moriarty, Dick; Zarebski, John
This paper delineates the exact methodology developed by the Sports Institute for Research/Change Agent Research (SIR/CAR) for applying a systems analysis technique to a voluntary mutual benefit organization, such as a school or amateur athletic group. The functions of the technique are to compare avowed and actual behavior, to utilize group dynamics to develop a cadre of change agents, and to reaudit the organization to assess the effects of Phase 1 and 2 intervention. Results of the application of this method to Little League baseball organizations are presented and discussed. A diagram illustrating the professional-amateur dichotomy in the structure of athletic organizations is included. (LH)
