El kaizen en una organización deportiva: un esquema de mejora continua

Manuel Francisco Suarez Barraza, Jose Angel Miguel Davila

Resumen


La industria del fútbol ha experimentado en los últimos años un extraordinario crecimiento que se ha representado entre el 10 y el 15% dependiendo de su mercado por algunos autores. Sin embargo, se pronostica que este crecimiento presente una desaceleración en los años venideros como resultado la crisis económica y financiera en el ámbito global de 2008-2009. Por lo tanto, algunas de estas organizaciones deportivas dedicadas al fútbol en México han comenzado a trabajar en modelos de gestión orientados a la mejora continua (Kaizen en su término en japonés), la gestión de calidad y la planificación estratégica. De esta manera, el propósito principal de la investigación es comprender la aplicación del Kaizen en un contexto tan específico como lo es una organización deportiva dedicada al fútbol. A través de un método cualitativo del caso de estudio se logró comprender que la aproximación gerencial del Kaizen puede ayudar a una organización deportiva a mejorar su sistema de gestión y, por lo tanto, obtener mejores resultados deportivos. Un esquema teórico de la gestión de la mejora continua es el resultado final de esta investigación.

Palabras clave
