issues and challenges

 

Cricket Australia is the governing body for professional and amateur cricket in Australia, operating all the national representative cricket sides and responsible for organizing and hosting test tours. It has around 180 employees at its base in Melbourne, its Centre of Excellence in Brisbane and other sites around Australia. It has six member organizations: Cricket New South Wales, Queensland Cricket, South Australian Cricket Association, Tasmanian Cricket Association, Cricket Victoria and Western Australia Cricket Association.

The Cricket Australia Board has a Strategy for Australian Cricket for 2011- 2015, and core to this is its vision: to be Australia’s favorite sport (a sport for all Australians). The aim is to be number one in Australia for viewership, fan passion, participation and team success.

Cricket Australia is undertaking a number of major initiatives to deliver this strategy and vision, one of which is using IT, especially online, to achieve a larger and more diverse fan base. This, together with ensuring better communication and collaboration within its highly-distributed organization of members and partners, has been a driver for the review of its IT infrastructure and capabilities.
