Second Call for Papers: Special Issue of the Case Studies in Sport Management Journal

Special Issue on Strategic Management in Sport Business


Guest Editors: Nola Agha, University of San Francisco, United States and Norm O’Reilly, University of Ottawa, Canada

Submissions due: July 31, 2014

A business looking for stable revenues, new product development, or international expansion engages in business strategy by determining how to position itself in appropriate markets and in relation to competitors. Strategic management relates to sports in one of two ways:

  1. A non-sport firm may use sport strategically by advertising, sponsoring, or partnering with a sport-related business.
  2. A sport-related business can exist in a wide variety of industries each of which have different economic features and market forces.

Due to these differences, strategic management instructors benefit from teaching-focused case studies from both types of firms that focus on real decisions made in real businesses.

As such, the aim of this special issue is to develop teaching cases appropriate for undergraduate and graduate courses in strategic management. The goal is to increase the number of cases related to strategic management that can be used in case study pedagogy.
