Human Resource Management and Sports

Like most organizations, the success of any sports team is heavily dependent on the talent and chemistry of their people. To wit, where else but in big-time sports can you see the effects of talent assessment, recruiting, leadership and employee engagement played out, in public, under the spotlight, every day of the year? What players to draft or sign, which ones to develop, which ones to cut loose, and how to build the right mix of personalities and talent to achieve team goals are the primary concern of all sports franchises. HR and Sports will apply the tools and techniques of human resource management to the context of sports and sports management.
