Crilley, G. & Sharp, C.A. 2006.  “Insights from research: Managerial qualities and operational performance: a proposed model”

Measuring Business Excellence, vol. 10, no. 2, 2006, pp. 4-18.


Reports on measurement of the relationship between managerial qualities displayed by the manager as one variable, and the resultant operational performance of the centre for which the manager is responsible. Attempts to quantify this relationship are rare in the literature of leisure management. Tin doing so the paper details a complex, two-tiered level of national surveys that provided the proposed model of the relationship between the facility manager and the organisation’s operational performance. Furthermore, the study raises professional implications
