Developing the Delta Group Barometer ‘Good Governance in Sport’ in sport federations in Belgium, Flanders, Wallonia and the German-speaking Community.
In recent years, more and more organizations (such as schools, hospitals, companies …) are investing in good governance. The sport sector also does not let this theme pass by. The present research aims to map aspects of good governance and innovation in sport federations in Belgium, Flanders, Wallonia and the German-speaking Community. More in particular, the intention is to develop the Delta Group Barometer ‘Good Governance in Sport’. To this end, already available measuring instruments developed at the KU Leuven and the UCL are used. Both universities combine their strengths and expertise. Regarding the research, both an external observation and a self-evaluating analysis are used. Based on the results, it will be possible for managers within sport federations to optimize their good governance policy. The research is funded by the Baillet Latour Fund and is supported by the Delta Group, the BOIC and GUBERNA.
