Organising The second core management process initiated in the pre-event stage of event management is that of organising. According to Watt (1992, p. 25), this entails determining: the activities to be accomplished towards achieving the end objectives; the gathering together of these activities into relevant structures; and allocating the achievement of objectives, through these activities, to the appropriate groups or individuals . . [Organisation] provides the framework within which individuals can co-operate together to achieve what they could not achieve on their own.
According to Torkildsen (1999), this means a ‘professional’ presentation of the event, where class, flair and imagination are truly evident; and this becomes possible only if the pre-event stages have been thoroughly planned, prepared, rehearsed and executed. Whereas rehearsal, execution and evaluation are relatively easy to achieve in most sport operational management contexts, this is more difficult to practise in the unique environment of managing one-off major sport events. This is not to say that it is impossible to achieve.
For this reason, we introduce the boundaries and constraints of effective facility and event management, providing a holistic context for applying the analytical processes and tools that will be introduced in subsequent chapters. To ensure practical relevance and meaning, we begin with a case study of a specific major sport event—namely, the 2002 Commonwealth Games hosted in the city of Manchester, England. Through analysis of this international sports event, which includes facility building and development, a conceptual framework is presented from which most event and facility managers can operate.
