The planning for the FIFA 2014 tournament was done by company owner David Miller. He is essentially a one man show when it comes to taking care of all related tasks which are a part of executing his companies various video game tournaments and events. The goals that David set for having a successful FIFA tournament began with the actual event running smoothly and timely. This management of function and time are essential in providing a positive experience for gamers to feel satisfied with the overall quality of the tournament.

Overall, the tournament would be successful in achieving David’s short-term goal of getting people out there to play and participate which would then attract the sponsorship of companies thus reaching his intermediary goals, companies already sponsoring WeGotGame include, Microsoft, and BenQ Canada – with more sponsorship and more people coming out to play in these tournaments, David will then achieve his long-term goal of making accumulated profit which will be talked about in the control part of this analysis.

Cirillo was in-charge of the technical support and Greco was the facilitator. The structure of their organization is decentralized. All of his staff members have some independence in doing their jobs. Decision-making is also decentralized. His members contributed some solutions to the decision making such as; which game must they play and what kind of consoles should be used. Though he has staff, Miller has control of everything outside the actual event. He is...
