Developing an IT tool to assist European sports organisations in the decision-making process
The project focused on evaluating the degree of maturity of the sports organizations under study in terms of eight dimensions, considering various parameters and indicators in each of them.
Thus, the IT tool will provide the positioning of the sport organizations in relation to governance, strategy, sport and events, marketing, human resources, social responsibility, IT & procedures and finances.
Our objective is to provide this information in a very easy way to help European managers to have its own position in a visual way using bar charts, comparative tables or colors to better understand and to be ready to establish their objectives in the future.

Below you will find a brief description of what each of the dimensions seeks to analyse:
GOVERNANCEThe assessment of the governance concept focused on three issues: democracy and participation (committees, holding of meetings, representativeness of different groups, etc.), ethics and integrity (gender equality, mandates of chairpersons, etc.) and accountability and transparency (information for accountability to stakeholders, which in turn supports democratic, constitutional, and learning perspectives).
STRATEGYThe strategic dimension took as a reference whether the organisations had a strategic plan, the version of the plan, the level of communication and the degree of compliance.
SPORTThe sporting dimension focused mainly on assessing the sporting results of the organisations, measuring performance in international or national competitions, but also aspects such as the allocation of resources for the development of grassroots sport or the organisation of sporting events.
MARKETINGTo assess the marketing dimension, the focus was on evaluating the level of development in four main areas: commercial policy, sponsorship, promotion and communication, and web and social media.
