and entertainment. Many of these have global reach. Few governing
bodies in sport today possess the capability to police threats
throughout an increasingly complicated and interwoven network of
relationships on an expanding geographical scale.
6. A comprehensive strategy for managing sports integrity
that proceeds
from perceiving the challenge not as eliminating all breaches
but as involving preventive measures to minimise the likelihood
of breaches, combined with effective capabilities to deal with
them when they occur. In this respect, management of integrity
today closely resembles quality management a generation ago,
when leaders in that field discovered that the best way to achieve
consistent high quality was not to inspect after production and then
rework, but rather to build quality into products and services and
organisational processes from the outset.
Thus, effective strategies for managing sports integrity includes three
critical elements:
Governance solutions
sensitive to existing structures and
traditions but ensuring adequate and transparent separation
of powers among rule-making, administrative, and disciplinary
functions.
Certification regimes
that include clear rules and regulations,
mandatory attestations to codes of conduct, and formal
education and training initiatives.
Integrity monitoring
that consists of professionally managed
intelligence gathering, investigative work, vetting of candidate
owners or key personnel for suitable background and respect
for the sport, and a variety of detection, prevention, and
deterrence measures.
