Change in Your Minor Sport Organization: How To Do It!
Olafson, Gordon A.; Moriarty, Dick
The Sports Institute for Research through Change Agent Research (SIR/CAR) assists organizations to identify: (1) ultimate goals; (2) the conflicts or obstacles that prevent an organization from reaching its goals; (3) the important tasks of the organization; (4) the individuals and groups that make the organization unique; (5) the influence of the press, radio, and television on the performance of the organization; and (6) the possibility of developing management techniques for short term, intermediate, and long term change; in short, how to restructure the total organization. Organizational change according to the SIR/CAR model results from three phases. Phase I involves viewing audiovisual material, interviewing participants of the organization, and distributing written opinionnaires to organization members. Phase II is a series of group discussions resulting in recommendations for organizational improvement. Phase III--organizational re-analysis--repeats the activities in Phase I. These phases encourage the determination of organizational objectives, examination of these objectives, and action to change or continue in accordance with the objectives. (Sample opinionnaires comprise the appendices.) (MM)
