Assignment: Submit a four to five (4 to 5) page essay (i.e., paper) concerning “Challenges in Functional Areas Applied to Sport Management.”
You are the President of an athletic organization. This organization can be hypothetical.
Compose an essay, which can educate a group of interns working for your athletic organization.
For this assignment, please write a four to five (4 to 5) page essay in third person voice (avoid counting the title or reference pages within the paper’s length requirement).
Your essay should include:
I. Introduction; (make certain to identify your athletic organization — this organization can be hypothetical).
II. Explain the importance of each functional area (i.e., planning, organizing, leading, and evaluating) associated with your athletic organization. Also, provide one (1) example for each of the aforementioned functional areas in order to support information presented in this final essay.
1. Planning – “A functional area of management that includes defining organizational goals and determining the appropriate mean by which to achieve those desired goals” (Masteralexis, Barr, & Hums, 2015, p. 576).
2. Organizing – “A functional area of management that focuses on putting plans into action by determining which types of jobs need to be performed and who will be responsible for doing these jobs” (Masteralexis, Barr, & Hums, 2015, p. 575).
3. Leading – “A functional area of management that is the “action” part of management process; it involves a variety of activities, including delegating, managing differences, managing change, and motivating employees” (Masteralexis, Barr, & Hums, 2015, p. 572).
4. Evaluating – “A functional area of management that measure and ensures progress toward organizational objectives by establishing reporting systems, developing performance standards, observing employment performance, and designing reward systems to acknowledge successful work on the part of employees” (Masteralexis, Barr, & Hums, 2015, p. 569).
Please begin a new paragraph when presenting information for each of the aforementioned functional areas. Also, identify each type of functional area’s name (i.e., planning, organizing, leading, and evaluating) in BOLD font within the text.
Once again, the information presented can address a hypothetical athletic organization.
III. Concluding summary.
Please clearly identify each of the aforementioned sections (see above — I, II, and III) in your final essay. Your essay must include at least three (3) references. These literary sources need to be cited in the body of your essay and included as references (i.e., review APA format).
Include an American Psychological Association (APA) formatted Title page and References page with your submission.
