As a result, performance management has been identified as a salient research topic within the field of organizational sport psychology. The purpose of this study was to identify the performance management processes used within Olympic sport programmes and explore how these processes interact in an organizational context. Thirteen participants working in senior positions within Olympic sport organizations (e.g., national performance director) across a range of countries were interviewed. Thematic analysis identified performance management processes existing across strategic, operational, and individual levels in Olympic sport programmes. The findings also suggested that these socially dynamic processes are interrelated and influenced by the delivery of the performance leader’s role. A preliminary conceptual framework was developed to highlight these processes and illustrate their interrelated nature. Overall, the findings advance our knowledge and understanding of performance management as an organizational concept within elite sport. Practical implications are provided for sport psychology practitioners to assess and optimize how performance management processes are used within elite sport programmes.||Funding Details:||Irish Research Council||Funding Details:||Sport Ireland||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Taylor & Francis||Journal:||Journal of Applied Sport Psychology||Start page:||1||End page:||37||Keywords:||Elite; High performance; Organizational functioning; Organizational psychology; Team behind the team||DOI:||10.1080/10413200.2021.1894506||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed||ISSN:||1041-3200||This item is made available under a Creative Commons License:||https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/3.0/ie/|
