Product The Functional Map for the Golf Industry in Europe
Title The Functional Map for the Golf Industry in Europe
he Functional Map for the Golf Industry in Europe is a graphic representation that describes the work activities and all main functions taking place across the sector. The methodology used through the Golf Stand project to develop this product was to breakdown large functional areas in to smaller functions. The “KEY PURPOSE” was the largest function which was then broken down in to “KEY AREAS”, which in turn were broken down on to “KEY ROLES” and finally the most disaggregated part of the Map were the “KEY FUNCTIONS” which are also the titles of the Occupational Standards. These were developed by asking what functions need to be performed in order for the previous function to be achieved.
These components can be described as follows:
- Key Purpose – summarising the overall mission of the industry
- Key Areas – describing large areas of work, often undertaken by whole groups of staff
- Key Roles – describing major functions carried out by teams or individuals
- Key Functions – describing the functions carried out by individuals.
In other words, the Functional Map provides a complete breakdown of all functions or work activities that need to be carried out by individual members of staff. Functions are not random activities but all have a clear purpose and outcome that are valuable to an employer of the Industry.
Target group Different stakeholders from the Golf sector but also from outside the Sector are targeted and can benefit from both Functional Maps: Training Providers, Ministries, European Institutions, National Qualification Authorities, Golf Courses, employees from the Golf Sector, National Golf Federations, National PGAs Associations, Social Partners, representatives of employees, students, citizens, the whole Sport Movement.
