Facility and Equipment Management for Sport Directors.
Olson, John R.
This book, intended for directors or managers of sport facilities, presents an overview of management techniques, strategies, and considerations. The first section, which focuses on planning for effective facility and equipment management, states that the foundation for such planning efforts is the manager's own personal philosophy, which in turn gives direction and consistency to operational efforts. Some of the topics addressed in this section include suggestions for identifying resources that can be used to assess the needs of a program, and how to emphasize important operational components of a facility management plan. Part 2 presents specific strategies for implementing and evaluating these plans. These strategies include guidelines, checklists, and forms that illustrate important components of an equipment management plan. The section also describes the importance of facility maintenance to the satisfaction and safety of users, provides operational guidance to the overall supervisor and coordinator of the multiple activities in the facility, considers the multiple aspects of facility scheduling, and outlines a comprehensive model for planning and conducting new facility construction. Three appendixes list addresses and phone numbers for resources that provide information regarding facility standards, equipment management, and planning and renovating facilities. (RJM)
