Abstract

The general purpose of this research is to explore the literature on professional management practice and to assess its impact on the beliefs and behaviours of sport administrators in Australia. Within these broad parameters, the specific aims are: first, to identify the management systems which comprise professional management practice; second, to identify those factors that may affect sport administrators' beliefs or applications of professional management practice; and finally, to construct a typology of professional management practice used by Australian sport administrators.
