In Skille (2008) I developed a framework for the analysis of sport policy implementation via local and voluntary sport clubs or, as the title of the article indicates, for ‘understanding sport clubs as sport policy implementers’. Thus, the general phenomenon of interest was sport policy, and the specific phenomenon of interest was the implementation process (of sport policy). My intent was to find or create a framework for a specific empirical research project regarding Norwegian sport clubs. In that respect, the framework is both focused upon and limited to a sport club point of view. To my knowledge, the use of this specific theoretical framework was new in sport management – and sport (social) sciences in general – when I introduced it in 2008.
