INSTITUTIONALIZED SYSTEMATIC REVIEW AS A TOOL FOR KNOWLEDGE TRANSFER IN SPORT MANAGEMENT
Sport Mont 2015, XIII(43-44-45), 22-28
Further development of research and knowledge transfer in sport management is limited by the lack of full utilization of the past research results. Considering the fact that sport is regarded as a crucial determinant of a region’s social and economic development, the transfer of the latest knowledge from sport management research to sport in practice is of the utmost importance. The availability of research results in a usable form and the active interaction between academia and sport practitioners could help to a great extent enhance not only the knowledge base but also the performance of the sports organizations, thus contributing to their professionalization. Therefore the aim of the paper is to propose a conceptual model for the institutionalization of systematic knowledge exploration and consolidation in sports management so as to enable and simplify knowledge transfer to the practice of sports organizations. The design of a conceptual model is based on the comparison of the well-known models of institutionalized systematic review from health science.
