In the beginning of the SPLISS projects, it was notable that there was a lack of a tool to measure competitiveness in elite sport research, and literature on the influence of elite sport policies on international success is generally poorly explored. This is related to the complexity of sport, sport systems, path dependency of policies and the lack of standardized methods to make international comparisons. SPLISS attempted to address these issues in itsĀ 2008 study.

The SPLISS theoretical framework has been applied and validated in several other contexts. It is the future plan to develop this more, not only focusing on the inputs, throughputs and outputs of elite sport, but also the outcomes.
