Sport and event practitioners manage projects and need to harness a wide variety of resources to meet finite goals. These range from establishing sports teams and competitions, managing sporting events, developing and managing facilities, managing promotional campaigns and developing fitness programs. The project management approach applied in this unit provides a well-structured methodology that supports a system of management which is team based and blends various resources to achieve an outcome.
