Abstract

The purpose of this study was to compare Sport Canada and the Australian Sports Commission using organizational structure theory. The organizations were compared using a qualitative methodology, with data collected via document analysis and semi-structured interviews. The Australian Sports Commission was found to be more complex, more formalized and less centralized than Sport Canada. The results can be attributed to the Australian Sports Commission's greater size and decreased proximity to government.Dept. of Kinesiology.
