Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
The people of Sweden have a long history of being engaged in sport organizations. Recently though, a decline of participation in sport organizations has been detected.
The Swedish society has evolved immensely lately and with it new marketing techniques, new communication tools and new values have seen the light of day. The thesis of this study is to examine how non-profit sport organizations function in the areas of organizational culture, internal communication, consumer surplus and branding.
The theories have been selected to provide background knowledge in the different functioning areas of an organization and to see how they cooperate in order to make marketing efforts more effective.
The primary data has been collected with the use of semi structured interviews with representatives from the participating organizations. Additional primary data has been collected in the form of observations of published digital posts from the organizations communicational channels, to complement the data received in the interviews.
The result shows that the principles of non-profit sports organizations are outdated and therefore differs from the rest of the society. The prevailing culture is one whom focuses primary on performance. This is reflected in their communication where the digital communication is somewhat neglected whilst the verbal forms of communication are highly developed. The only area where the involvement of members is coherent is in the context of performance.
