Reason to carry out this case study was to closely examine the strategic management of the Olympism Department of the Slovak Olympic Committee in light of the overall strategy of the Slovak Olympic Committee.

Slovak Olympic Committee as the sole representative of the Olympic Movement within the territory of Slovakia has a complex mission to universally contribute to development of sports in the Slovak Republic, to spread and to popularize basic principles and values of Olympism, to expand the Olympic heritage through sports, to contribute to harmonic development of a human being, mutual understanding and friendship among nations and to deepen peaceful coexistence. The long term strategic plan and the consequent activities of the Slovak Olympic Committee are all designed to fulfil this mission.

Firstly this case study analyzes the problems and underlying causes that lead to the major problem using the theoretical knowledge acquired over the duration of the SUCCESS project. Such as on hand experience and interaction with expert on various levels as well as the materials provided.  Afterwards we evaluated alternative solutions with specifying advantages and disadvantages and selecting the most appropriate one for the situation. Lastly we specified the implementation process of the selected solution in order to achieve maximum success.

It is hoped that this case study will help similar organizations with applying strategic management fundamentals into everyday activities.
