Sports Institute for Research/Change Agent Research (SIR/CAR) Windsor Minor Hockey.
Moriarty, Dick; Duthie, James
This organizational analysis of Windsor minor hockey was conducted as a pilot study into the policy decision making process in a sports organization. The study was divided into three phases. In the first phase the organization was audited and provided with information about various feedback channels. In phase two observations, available techniques, and management and organizational alternatives were discussed with policy makers. Phase three consisted of a reaudit of the organization in order to evaluate the effects of policy decisions in phase two. It was found that some changes--for example, the use of half ice and no standing leagues--were in the right direction. There were, however, areas in which more change was needed--particularly concerning communication and contact between organizational components. Recommendations for change were discussed. (PB)
