The Sports Governance Observer is a benchmarking tool that enables sport leaders to improve the governance of their federation by scoring performance on four different dimensions: Transparency, democratic processes, internal accountability and control, and societal responsibility.
A first version of the tool was applied to 35 international sports federations that are represented at the Olympic Winter and Summer Games, and the findings were published in a report from 2015. (link)
A new version of the tool builds on 57 principles of good governance measures scored through 309 indicators through a yes or no system.
In 2018 and 2019, Play the Game published reports that measured the state of governance in five and six international sports federations respectively.
