This article addresses the keeping the fans safe. Although it is important of maintaining good sight lines to see the game, keeping fans safe should also be a priority. Maintaining railing only to code seems to be out of date. Maybe when the code was established, the risk of them falling was lower. Raising the minimum height of the railings while still maintaining the line of sight for fans would be a good way to keep them safe while enjoying the game.

So much has changed in the quality of security all over the country in light of terroist attacks over the last century. Security in sports facilities is no exception.

Joshua Evans's curator insight, January 17, 2014 10:13 AM

Security can never be thorough enough. At an event like a game, there are thousands of potential victims if a terrorist attack happens. Always think security. 

Jason Cain's curator insight, March 22, 2014 10:47 PM

Security has been as important as the teams that are playing since the 9/11 attacks on the United States. It is important to keep everyone safe especially in large crowds where attacks would involve a lot of people at one time.

It takes a team of dedicated managers and staff to ensure these sporting events go as planned. Sports management is very necessary!

Jason Cain's curator insight, March 22, 2014 10:50 PM

This article discusses all the jobs that are involved when having a large arena. This would also be helpful when the subsidy issue is argued against. An arena does create jobs for the community. One may be surprised just how many.

There is nothing better than recognizing the men and women who work countless hours in order to provide the attending sports fan a memorable experience. This article also highlights the importance of an Enterprise asset management (EAM) & Computerized Maintenance Management Software. It also gives a great example on a stadiums recommendation to improve their maintenance issues. This article also has links to get great information on several different aspects of sports management that can be very useful for our final project.

Joshua Evans's curator insight, January 21, 2014 11:14 PM

Good look at behind the scenese of facility management. 

Cam Farnham's curator insight, October 15, 2014 12:33 AM

1. I learned that without a good EAM CMMS solution, maintenance can quickly skyrocket in price. Yes the job will get done, but the operation skyrockets in price. Also i learned that if you plan your maintenance through spreadsheets, you will forget something.  The article compares it to when someone tried to plan there days using sticky notes. You will loose them , and will always miss something.

 

2. I found it interesting that there were 7 specific objectives they described. I thought there could be an endless amount of objectives to make the maintenance  of sport better. Also i found it interesting that the article stated the community would be much happier if they did not have get a new stadium, because of costs and memories.

 

3. I selected this article because one of my first jobs might be working for a sports team in the facility field. I always thought driving a zamboni would be such a cool and fun job. Another reason i chose this is because my father has told me many cool stories about facility management. My father worked for the Brown University facility management staff when he was in college, until he made the football team.

 

4.This information about facility management will help me out because i know how to stay organized and how to be the most successful. I know not to use spreadsheets, or sticky notes to plan maintenance. Also i know specific objectives to get done to be the most successful and to make everyone happy.

Trust Enhances Employee and Customer Experience

Trust Enhances Employee and Customer Experience | Sports Facility Managment 4345054 | Scoop.it

In a customer service culture, trust is of the upmost importance in the customer and employee relationship. In the perfect setting, management must trust employees, employees must trust management, and the customer must trust the company. This is the “Three Legged Stool” theory in action. If any one of these groups mistrusts any of the others, there is no chance for customer loyalty.

Karl Wabst's curator insight, May 23, 2013 7:05 PM

The company-employee, company-customer and employee-customer relationships interact to form or kill the brand.

 

Contrary to popular beliefs, customers do not shop or stay loyal to a company based only on price. Employees do not work just for money. Companies require trust of customers and employees to thrive.

 

The power structure in this relationship is changing. Social media allows employees and consumers to be heard. What they have to say isn’t always complimentary.

As the advances of technology, somehow have consumed a better part of our lives, it is at least helpful to at least get the best bang for your buck. Software companies have developed better systems and software to help construct business expenses, schedules and plans.
