Sports Education Institutions in Turkey and Their Managerial Effectiveness

Fatih Mehmet Uğurlu

Abstract


The aim of this study is to investigate the managerial effectiveness of administrators according to the opinions of the
academicians who work in sports sciences faculties in Turkey. In order to collect the opinions of the academicians,
the “Managerial Effectiveness Evaluation (MEE) Scale” was adopted. The MEE scale consists of 5 subscales and 44
matters. The gathered data was analyzed with parametric and non-parametric tests by using SPSS 22.0 package
software. Additionally, in order to determine the level and course of the relationship between the dependent variables,
“Pearson correlation analysis” was conducted. To better explain the quality of the determined relationship and
determine the prediction between MEE scale and its subscales, “multiple regression” analysis was conducted.
Considering the opinions of the academicians, significant differences were determined in the gender variable in the
“Leadership” subscale (p< 0.05). In the correlation analysis, it was determined that the strongest relationship was
between the MEE scale and the “Planning and Decision-making” subscale (r= 0.980; p< 0.001) in a positive way and
at very high level. With the regression analysis, four distinct model structures were built with 6 independent
variables (MEE scale and its subscales). As a result of these 4 model structures, it was determined that the subscale
with the strongest prediction of the MEE scale was the “Planning and Decision-making” subscale. Furthermore, it
was determined that this subscale predicted the 96% of the variance of MEE scale (R2=0.960).
