Managing change and future challenges in sport organizations

Chapter overview This chapter describes the key factors to consider with regard to SHRM when introducing or dealing with change in the sport organization. Planned change is a critical part of an organization’s corporate strategy. The strategic corporate issue is the nature of change, while the SHRM issue is the implementation of that change and factors that influence the success of the change initiatives. The nature of change cannot be properly understood without acknowledging the acceptance of or resistance to the change among personnel who have to make it work. Effective human resource management (HRM) is an important part of the successful implementation of strategic organizational change.
