Synopsis:
Applied Sport Management Skills, Third Edition With Web Study Guide, takes a unique and effective approach to teaching students how to become strong leaders and managers in the world of sport. Organized around the central management functions-planning, organizing, leading, and controlling-this third edition addresses the Common Professional Component topics outlined by the Commission on Sport Management Accreditation (COSMA). The text explains important concepts but then takes the student beyond theories, to applying those management principles and developing management skills. This practical how-to approach, accompanied by unmatched learning tools, helps students put concepts into action as sport managers-developing the skills of creative problem solving and strategic planning, and developing the ability to lead, organize, and delegate. Applied Sport Management Skills, Third Edition, has been heavily revised and touts a full-color format with 1,300 new references. Content updates keep pace with industry trends, including deeper discussions of legal liability, risk management and equipment management, servant leadership, sport culture, and social media. Particularly valuable are the special elements and practical applications that offer students real opportunities to develop their skills: Features such as Reviewing Their Game Plan and Sport Management Professionals @ Work (new to this edition) provide a cohesive thread to keep students focused on how sport managers use the concepts on the job. Applying the Concept and Time-Out sidebars offer opportunities for critical thinking by having the student think about how specific concepts relate to a sport situation or to the student's actual experiences in sports, including part-time jobs, full-time jobs, internships, and volunteer work. Self-Assessment exercises offer insight into students' strengths and weaknesses and how to address shortcomings. An enhanced web study guide is integrated w
