This unit is designed to encourage the understanding and ability to critically analyse the principles of governance in sport along with the creation and implementation of policy. Areas of discussion will include how sporting organisations set and achieve their objectives; the rules and procedures for making organisational decisions; the means of optimising and monitoring performance; along with overall strategic organisational planning and policy development.
On completion of this unit, students should be able to;
1. Understand, identify and contextualise the principles of governance and how an organisation develops strategic goals as part of a robust system of governance that fits the particular circumstances of the applicable sport;
2. Identify the broad conceptual principles of governance and policy development and how those principles might be applied on an operational level;
3. Critically evaluate the mechanisms and benchmarks an organisation and its board can utilise as part of its organisational structure to ensure best practice;
4. Demonstrate a critical understanding of policy development, implementation and methods for monitoring and assessing policy effectiveness; and
5. Identify the steps involved in policy development for sporting organisations including how the board of an organisation complies with its legal and regulatory obligations and ultimately ensures that it is acting in the best interests of the organisation members.
