The purpose of this paper is to set out research that aimed to understand how the internal capabilities of Olympic sport organisations can be addressed.
The research was carried out by a mixed‐method, multi phase approach, using senior sport administrators in the Pacific region.
The research developed a tool for analysing the “readiness” of sport organisations to deliver programmes and services.
This research has developed a framework for the internal diagnosis of organisations.
Managers can use the tool to inform their strategic planning.
The paper presents a new and unique tool for assessing organisational capacity.
