Each chapter includes a detailed, step-by-step description of the key tools and techniques and their application; a 'real world' case study to demonstrate the technique in action, plus an extensive guide to further resources and a series of self-test questions. The final chapter offers an extended, integrated case-study, demonstrating how all the key management techniques are combined within the everyday operation of a successful sport or leisure organization.
