Choregia , 2012,
Abstract: Computer with its widespread influence over the world has involved everyone in recent years. The growing demand for this technology is associated somehow with anxiety and stress. Therefore, the present study has been implemented in order to investigate the amount of computer anxiety in iranian sport organizations. 574 managers and experts were selected as a sample by random selection. The tools of the measurement were the standard Computer Anxiety Questionnaire (1987) of Heinz, Glass and Knight for which the face and content validities were confirmed by an expert academic group. Confirmatory factor analysis, t - independent test, correlation coefficients of two fields - points (rPbis), general discipline (rser) and one - way ANOVA were used in order to analyze the data. The results demonstrated that there is no significant relationship between age (P<0.821), sex (P<0.599) and computer anxiety, but the relationship between educational level (P <0.025), Organizational post (P<0.035), work history (P<0.037), work experience (P <0.004) and computer anxiety were significant. The results also demonstrated that there is a significant difference between the computer anxiety observed in the organizations of physical education, sport federations and the departments of physical education in the schools (P<0.037 , F2,347 = 3.339). In the end we came to the conclusion that computer anxiety is a dynamic process with a variety of dimensions and complexities that should not be ignored easily and must be studied attentively.
Strategic planning models in public and non-profit sport organizations  [PDF]
Choregia , 2007,
Abstract: Strategic planning is widely used by organisations, as itis an integral part of strategy. The present study tackles thetopic of strategic planning as it is developed by public andnon-profit organizations and provides an extensive review ofliterature in the area of the development and role of strategic planning within strategic management and the way it is adopted by public and non-profit organizations. For the purposes of this paper, five models of strategic planning have been discussed with the belief that they describe better the models that can be approached and developed by public and non-profit organizations in the area of sport. This article aims at partly contributing to the theoretical discussion concerning the ability of organizations to integrate and deploy strategic planning. For this study we examined a non-profitsport organization in British Columbia, Canada. The authorspropose that public and non-profit sport organizations shoulddevelop their own model of strategic planning, which mayhelp them to think and act strategically.

Journal of Management and Sustainability , 2012, DOI: 10.5539/jms.v3n1p45
Abstract: Authoritative discourse within the literature indicates a realization that sport impacts the natural environment (Brooks, 2006; Cachay, 1993; Lenskyj, 1998) and that environmental sustainability (ES) in sport management is emerging as a topic of concern. The number of sport-related journal articles focusing on environmental sustainability (ES), however has been found to be insufficient (Mallen, Stevens and Adams, 2011). The purpose of this study, thus, was to complete a content analysis of management journals to reveal marketing-ES literature to underscore the development of a sport marketing-ES research agenda. The premise was that the understandings concerning the outlook, perceptions, opinions and viewpoints in the marketing-ES manuscripts will enhance the capacity of researchers in developing a research agenda in sport marketing-ES. The methods involved content analysis steps provided by Krippendorff (1980), Weber (1985), and Wolfe, Hoeber and Babiak (2002) including: establishing the sampling units, the unit of text, the coding themes and sub-themes, analytical factors and coding mode. The data analysis framework involved the use of key marketing concepts: the consumer perspective (Aaker, 1996) and the corporate perspective (Knapp, 2000), along with the concept of influencers (Davis & Dunn, 2002). In sum, the examination involved 49 journals published from 1999 to 2009. Key findings included 63 marketing-ES manuscripts and their concepts, themes and sub-themes, along with their perspectives and influencers that were applied to construct 30 questions to develop a sport marketing-ES research agenda. It is time for sport researchers to generate a robust research response to the marketing-ES questions.

Abstract: Disaster is a generic name given to an event causing physical, economic and social losses for people and it stops or interrupts the normal life and actions of the people. When looking at the outcomes of disasters, it can be seen that they mostly cause loss of life and property. While some of these losses emerged immediately with the disaster, some may occur after a certain time. Rapid intervention in during and after disaster is extremely important to recovery of people’s life. Many search and rescue organizations were founded in the World in order to intervene to disasters and emergency situations. After the 1999 earthquake that caused a lot of casualties, National Medical Rescue Teams (NMRT), one of the search and rescue organizations of Turkey, was founded in 2004 for the purpose of reducing number of dead and wounded to an acceptable rate by doing accurate and quick intervention for people exposed to disasters. NMRT are teams made up of volunteer health personnel working according to the regulations created by Ministry of Health to provide medical rescue services to victims of disasters and emergencies of all kinds, both domestic and international.
Activity – based costing in sport organizations:Theoretical background & future prospects  [PDF]
Choregia , 2007,
Abstract: Costing systems in recent years have shown a significantdevelopment and activity-based costing (ABC) specificallyhas been considered as a major contribution to cost management, particularly in service businesses. The sport sector is composed to a great extent of service functions, yet considerably less have been reported of the use of activity based costing to support cost management in sport organizations. Since the power of information becomes continuously crucial for the implementation of effective business administration, the traditional methods of cost measurementproved insufficient on this issue, leading to the invention ofABC. The aim of this paper is twofold. First of all we wantto present the main theoretical background of ABC and itssubstantiated benefits, and secondly to present some practical steps for the implementation of ABC in sport organizations.

Journal of Applied Sciences , 2009,
Abstract: The purpose of this study was to identify which was the determinative factor of the competencies needed to manage health and fitness clubs and indoor sport facilities in Greece. For the collection of the data we used an instrument validated by a sample of 101 health and fitness clubs and indoor sport facilities managers. The final sample of the study was 401 sport directors in the municipalities, selected randomly. Exploratory factor analysis with varimax rotation revealed that sport science was the determinative factor, comprising 12 competency statements. The internal validity revealed a Cronbach’s alpha factor of 0.87 with a factor-loading ranging from 0.889 to 0.616. The items rated by managers demonstrated an understanding of: (a) human limitations in sport (factor loading 0.889), (b) the prevention and rehabilitation of injuries (factor loading 0.873) and (c) exercise physiology and anatomy (factor loading 0.872). These results show that the determinative factor of competencies needed to manage health and fitness clubs and indoor sport facilities are closely related to sport science.
