This chapter examines the application of some of the central concepts of figurational sociology in our empirical investigations of policy processes and enactment in settings such as local authorities and schools. In particular, we discuss: (1) how the concepts of the figuration, interdependence, power and habitus were used to understand the enactment of sport policy and development activity by sports development officers (SDOs) in local authorities; and (2) how Elias’s concept of unplanned outcomes was important in explaining aspects of organizational change and policy enactment in local authorities and schools. The chapter ends by reflecting upon the particular value of figurational sociology for making sense of the sport policy process and the sport development activity that emerges from it.
