Purpose: The purpose of this project is to allow the student to identify an important management theory and discuss the application of the theory within the sport facility and event industry.

Instructions: Provide a brief description of the theory selected (Taylorism, Hawthorne Effect or Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs). Identify and elaborate on the major applications of the theory as if you are the facility or event manager of any specific sport facility or event of your choice. Follow these instructions in preparing your project paper and submit your written report accordingly.
