SPT 333 Final Project Guidelines for Pay Athletes
Overview
The final project for this course will be the creation of a personal plan of action. You will select a sport industry-related issue or topic you feel strongly about and analyze the societal, ethical, political, and other aspects of the issue. You will articulate the various perspectives and discuss the interpretations of the issue. You will then focus on how you think the issue can be addressed, using scholarly support and theories to create a conceptual plan for use in your future career.

Ethics and considerations of cultural and societal impact are important aspects in any area of business, but they are of particular importance in an industry that is as expansive and impactful to such a large population as the sport industry. Individual athletes and sports teams are often role models for the young, facilities and sport organizations employ vast numbers of people, and the sport industry in general has a global reach.

Professionals entering the sport industry are bound to encounter a wide range of ethical and moral dilemmas due to the industry’s global reach and culturally influential nature. Therefore, it is important for such professionals to be able to balance various perspectives on sport-related topics and consider the social, cultural, and political impacts of decisions made.

The final project for this course will help prepare you for the complex considerations that a sport management professional might face, while allowing you the opportunity to establish a stance on an existing issue within sport. Specifically, you will develop a personal plan of action in which you will select a topic or area of the sport industry you find intriguing and analyze an existing issue related to that topic from various perspectives. After performing a balanced analysis of the topic and issue, you will establish your own stance on that issue and outline a plan for addressing the issue in your future career. Using your conclusions from your issue analysis and plan for addressing that issue, you will conclude your personal plan of action by creating a general framework to help you navigate moral and ethical dilemmas in your future career. This final piece will require you to place yourself in a management role and consider the balance between business ends and impact on internal and external stakeholders, in general terms.

Your personal plan of action will be considered for inclusion in the professional portfolio that you will create during your capstone course.

This assessment addresses the following course outcomes:

· Analyze specific topics within the global sport industry for their greater cultural, social, and political implications
· Articulate opposing viewpoints of moral dilemmas in a fair and balanced manner with consideration of inherent biases
· Apply management and leadership theories related to ethics and professionalism to personal approaches for balancing business .

Finally, extend your solutions approach and the considerations you made during analysis into a more general framework you can use as a manager in your future sport-related career.
