In July 2007, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) members approved the first Summer Youth Olympic Games, scheduled for 2010, and the first Winter Youth Olympic Games, scheduled for 2012. The Youth Olympic Games (YOG) is the flagship of the IOC’s strategy for young people and invites athletes from around the world to compete, learn and share experiences.
An integrated project road map is imperative to track progress of key activities and milestones as well as the interdependencies of the functional areas.
This is what makes the YOG different experience from other sporting events: it offers a platform to tackle, in workshops and forums, aspects that are relevant for young people and society in general, covering topics such as skills development, nutrition, a healthy lifestyle, the environment, the fight against doping and the digital revolution.
Organizing a Youth Olympic Games is one of the most complex program management challenges in the world. Each 12-day event requires the creation of a new organization to deliver it, with no room for delays.
This article examines EY’s approach for helping the Buenos Aires 2018 YOG Organizing Committee to make such a major project a reality.
