The general objective of the SIGGS project is to promote and support good governance in sport by providing practical guidance to National Olympic Committees (NOCs) and national sport federations (NFs) on how to implement principles of good governance in order to enhance their governance.
This Steering Committee will consist of a number of experts from different fields and with different backgrounds, including all the leaders of the various Work Packages. The Steering Committee will meet at least four times throughout the SIGGS project. Each meeting will be dedicated to a specific task and chaired by the responsible Work Package Leader. In this regard, the Steering Committee will guide the overall project.
Two “general tools” will be developed. On the one hand, a self-evaluation tool will be created with the main view of analysing strengths and weaknesses in the implementation of good governance principles by NOCs and NFs. On the other hand, Action Plans will be drawn up for each principle. These Plans consist of a list of possible actions to increase the performance of the organisation regarding this respective principle.
Following the results of the self-evaluation tool, “individualised tools” will be developed. First of all, Roadmaps will be drawn up. These Roadmaps will focus on a number of key priorities and principles and will contain possible actions for these principles selected from the different Action Plans. In addition, national strategies will be developed including a list of key principles and key activities for the next years after the conclusion of the project.
During the SIGGS Project, National Strategic Workshops will be organised in the countries of seven participating NOCs. The aim of these sessions is to raise awareness on good governance and to provide practical guidance on the implementation of good governance principles. The individualised tools will be used to customise the Workshops to the needs of the participants.
