Prabha Shastri Ranade (Author)
Synopsis Management in sports is emerging as a specialized and technical field these days. Considering the key role of sports in national life, its management assumes significance. Activities relating to sports and physical education are essential components of human resource development, helping to promote good health, comradeship and a spirit of friendly competition, which, in turn, have a positive impact on the overall development of personality of the youth. Excellence in sports enhances the sense of achievement, national pride and patriotism. Sports also provide beneficial recreation, improve productivity and foster social harmony and discipline. Several H R aspects of management like human capital, strategic planning, group dynamics, coaching strategies including leadership, motivation, communication and feedback, attitude, behavior and ethics are core to sports. To explore these dimensions becomes essential for the development of sports as a field. Considering India’s poor performance in international sports, H R aspects can be viewed analytically and strengthened for the growth and development of sports in India. The present book proposes to have an introductory look into the subject of sports, how H R aspects are interwoven into sports and policies framed for the game, with the basic theme of revolving around H R aspects in sports that help to make sports a better event and sportsperson a sports star. This book is divided into three sections. Section I represents an overview of sports in India, in which, it discusses sport infrastructure, initiatives, and organizations involved. Section II talks about the Human Resource (HR) aspects and application in sports. Section III explores strategies and policies of different countries like India, Australia, Europe, England and Canada for their country sports.
