Summary

Applied Sport Management Skills, Second Edition With Web Study Guide, uses the four management functions of planning, organizing, leading, and controlling to teach students how to become strong leaders and managers in the world of sport. This comprehensive and fully updated text provides an overview of management topics with a unique focus on developing the skills necessary for managing sport organizations.

The text's how-to approach and unmatched learning tools help students put into practice what they will be doing as sport managers-including creative problem solving, strategic planning, and developing the skills to lead, organize, and delegate. By taking principles and concepts presented in the text and applying them to professional practice, students will be able to assess how their interests and skills can contribute to the growing field of sport management.

Applied Sport Management Skills, Second Edition, has been thoroughly updated to enhance the educational experience. Two new features have been added to the second edition. Social Media Exercises expose students to the expanding role of social media in managing a sport organization, and Starting a Sport Business features encourage students to explore the real-world needs of sport entrepreneurship, such as developing an organizational structure, formulating ideas on leading employees, and controlling the financial aspects of their sport business.

These new tools complement popular features from the first edition to help students understand leadership and management in the sport industry:

- Reviewing Their Game Plan chapter-opening scenarios, revisited throughout each chapter, provide a cohesive thread to keep students focused on how sport managers use the concepts on the job.

- Chapter-closing case studies, questions, and exercises help students apply knowledge to specific situations.

- Applying the Concept question boxes
