Abstract [en]

With the aim of contributing to the discussion about competence requirements for sport managers and the curricula content needed to meet them, this paper presents the results of a study on sport managers’ everyday work demands. Departing from the fact that curriculum design so far has leaned on professionals’ views on industry needs and appropriate curricula, hiring managers’ perceptions of preferred qualifications, educators’ ratings of the importance of various competencies, student evaluations of components in existing programmes, and sought after competencies in job advertisements, we argue for a need to more closely investigate what it is that sport managers do and to make use of such knowledge in the construction of curricula. Accordingly, the purpose of this paper is to analyse club sport managers’ everyday activities in order to identify the knowledge, skills and abilities required to manage them. In capturing the everyday sport management practice, we video recorded two sport clubs’ board meetings over the course of one year. Board meetings were chosen since they produce an output constituting input for staff responsible for executing decisions, thereby making it possible to observe the construction of the tasks, responsibilities and activities of the sport manager. Findings show how a broad range of tasks require an even broader range of knowledge, skills and abilities to perform them. Mapping them against prevailing guidelines, recommendations and accreditations show how some required competencies are not addressed in existing curricular models, pointing to a need of a more practice-based approach to sport management curriculum.
