10 Ways to improve risk management

10 Ways to improve risk management | Sports Facility Management | Scoop.it

Why do risk management implementations and functions often fail to deliver what is expected? And what causes senior management to feel that its investments in risk management systems are not delivering the expected returns? Many factors, potentially, are to blame, stemming from various parts of the organization and its systems. But most often, the culprits come down to a handful of common dysfunctions.

Ten key practices, in particular, are regularly neglected in organizations across industries and geographies, and in both large and small business settings. Successfully addressing these areas can help enhance the organization’s ability to deal with the uncertain future, improve decision-making, and increase the reliability of periodic forecasts. Accordingly, these measures will augment the “predictive power” of the organization, resulting in greater stakeholder confidence. Understanding the pitfalls, and recommending solutions to them, can provide a solid basis for helping to improve risk management in the organization. FOLLOW THE LINK

Risk Management is always a big thing as a manager. I don't know how many times a week we are being talked to about risk management but it is for a reason as it is really important.

Being a big sports fan I have noticed the diffence in prices from buying from an actual vendor or a person. 9 times out of 10, the ticket prices are inflated when buying from someone who is selling their tickets. As mentioned in this article, individuals are making money off of the tickets as thethere selling them for more than they are worth.

As talked about in this article websites like StubHub have not only created new avenue for fans to pucharse tickets for events but also in most cases fans are selling season tickets for more then they paid for them.This is generating new revenue off of ticket sales it will be interesting to see if any issues ever arise between the statium and fans that are making money off of inflated resale ticket prices.

How to Increase Sports Facility Revenue with Birthday

Sports facility birthday parties and team parties increase awareness of your business in the community and generate new leads and revenue.

An interesting take on how to create revenue in your sporting facility.

Daniel Toth's curator insight, September 26, 2013 4:01 PM

1. I learned that there are multiple ways that a manager of a sport facility can increase revenue during birthday parties for younger children. Some of these include providing a gift with the cost of the party. An example of a good gift was a t-shirt or other apparel that had the facilities name on it. Not only does it please the customer, it also serves as an advertising tool, becuase the child will wear it and broadcast the facility and the fact it was "free" with the party, making other kids beg their parents to let them have a birthday party there. Also, by trying to have your employees close a deal with other parents picking up the kids. In order to make them try and book future parties, offereing an incentive is a good way to try to make the employees book parties. 

2. Information I found interesting and educational were that birthday parties act as a block in "slow periods" of business. They allow slow times of business to gain revenue. Also, by teaming up with the local pizza store is useful, becuase you might get a dscounted price on pizza in exchange for advertising their own business. 

3. I selected this article becuase I am interested in pursuing a career in running my own sport facility. I would love to provide children and adults opprotunities to better their health and to let them have fun playing sports. I think by having my own facility I could increase certain sports in areas that dont have access to certain sports. 

4. This will help me in the sport management business by giving me a step ahead of the comptetion with gaining a certain demographic of customers, and also by allowing me to make more money if I were to ever encounter a financial situation.
