Stakeholder Analysis and Sport Organisations
- Available for pre-order. Item will ship after December 7, 2021
This book provides a critical examination of the origins and development of stakeholder theory within sport management research and expands the existing literature by providing insights on stakeholding in sport from various perspectives, such as governance, communication, and marketing.
Examining cases from around the world and from a wide range of different sporting contexts, each chapter reflects on key insights derived from stakeholder theory before offering an analysis of the limitations of the theory and the ways in which it might be fruitfully extended or developed. It offers suggestions on how the literature on stakeholding in sport can be advanced in order to provide knowledge relevant not only to sport studies, but also to organization theory more broadly, and points to future avenues of inquiry in order to extend the reach of stakeholder theory and other inter-organizational perspectives in sport management research.
Stakeholder Analysis and Sport Organisations is fascinating reading for any advanced student, researcher, policy maker or practitioner with an interest in sport management, sport governance, sport development or organisational theory.
