Krinanthi Gdonteli and Georgios KipreosAbstract:
The aim of this paper is to explore in-depth aspects of the substantial upgrading of municipal sports services. For this purpose, semi-structured interviews were conducted to three Mayors of the Attica region and the Directors of the Municipal Sports Organizations. For interview questions, the Balanced Scorecard Model was used. Financial, customer, internal processes, tangible, and learning and growth perspectivewere investigated. Results were analysed by “thematic analysis” and showed that there is an urgent need to raise funds through sponsorship. Organizations show great awareness to vulnerable groups, but in terms of technology and innovative administrative applications, limited use is registered. Tangible seem to need upgrading, and staff is not sufficient, and no measures are taken to train them further. Overall, the study shows that there is a lot of room for modernization, and also that the Balanced Scorecard Model is a useful tool for evaluating Municipal Sports Organizations.Pages: 108-112 | 550 Views 12 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
