Evaluación de la calidad en organizaciones deportivas: adaptación del modelo Servqual

Revista de Psicologia del Deporte (Impact Factor: 0.9). 12/2009; 18:137-150.

ABSTRACT The SERVQUAL model (Parasunaman, Zeithaml and Berry, 1993) has proven to be a useful procedure for
evaluating quality. Nevertheless, several studies have criticized the model's methodological layout. This question is relevant because of organizations' growing interest in quality management. Furthermore, given that the model has proven to be useful, it seems necessary to demonstrate whether methodological criticism is confirmed or, on the contrary is only an effect of the analysis procedures. This study presents an adaptation of the model to the realm of sports organisations. Our results support the hypothesis that the different adaptations were not devised with methodological guarantees. The results also support the existence of a stable and parsimonious factorial structure containing acceptable adjustment indexes.

    ABSTRACT: Ofrecer servicios de calidad supone una de las estrategias más buscadas en la actualidad por las organizaciones deportivas como fórmula para conseguir la satisfacción de los usuarios, por lo que las investigaciones referentes a la calidad de los servicios deportivos suponen una de las principales líneas sobre las que se apoya la filosofía organizacional. Así, el objetivo de este estudio es elaborar una herramienta que permita evaluar la calidad percibida por usuarios de un servicio municipal deportivo. Se ha realizado un análisis factorial exploratorio a fin de obtener la estructura subyacente de la herramienta y las interrelaciones entre variables, así como un análisis de fiabilidad para comprobar la consistencia interna de las escalas. Los resultados obtenidos cumplen las condiciones de fiabilidad y validez satisfactorias que nos permite continuar el proceso de validación de la herramienta mediante un análisis factorial confirmatorio y un análisis de la teoría de Respuesta al Ítem (TRI). Por último, consideramos una propuesta interesante utilizar un análisis de datos cualitativos de las entrevistas efectuadas con los responsables de las organizaciones participantes.

    ABSTRACT: This study had a two-fold objective: first, to create a measure to assess athletes', parents', coaches' and managers' perception of the sport environment for children and second, to analyse the differences among them with respect to their perceptions of that environment. The participants 333 athletes, 333 parents, 63 coaches and 46 managers completed the Perception of Youth Sport Environment Questionnaire, created for this investigation. An exploratory factor analysis revealed the existence of five dimensions in perceiving sport context: good refereeing, sportspersonship, educational coaches, respectful parents and competition organisation. The multivariate analyses of the sport environment dimensions based on group and gender showed that managers were the most critical agents in their evaluations of the youth sport context, including their own organisation. The results are discussed for their practical applications to coaching and managing youth sports.
