5.1 Managing and resolving conflict

Assessment

All ICC Foundation Modules are competency based. They describe the behaviours that you need to demonstrate in order to be accredited. The evidence of successfully demonstrating theses behaviour may be:

  • Observational: as observed, and noted by a coach (At present this is an ICC Umpire Coach until further notice)
  • Video-based: video evidence of your behaviours demonstrated in a match
  • A combination of observation and video-based evidence

Please re-read the introduction to this module: ‘Introduction: ICC Expectations, Dismissal judgements, Consistency’. These expectations are non-negotiable. They specify the minimum experience that is required before you can be accredited by ICC. Evidence is needed, with observations/reports, of this experience. You are expected to keep an up-to-date and accurate CV of your experiences and appointments. This evidence/information should be available electronically.

You are expected to possess an external hard-drive, or memory-stick, with sufficient memory to store video evidence in an appropriate format. ICC requires you to be responsible for your own professional development; and to be responsible for recording, and updating, this development e.g. Recording an overseas exchange is not sufficient; it must be accompanied by a detailed report of the your competencies and professional behaviours during the exchange. This report will be provided by an ICC Umpire Coach.

5.1 Managing and Resolving conflict

You must successfully demonstrate:
The use of expert skills, judgement, and competence in managing and resolving conflict before, during, and after a match
Conflict does happen in a cricket environment, when it does, it either needs to be managed or resolved – but it has to be dealt with. It is part of umpiring and cannot be avoided. ICC expects its umpires to be able to read the signs of developing conflict and implement strategies to manage it appropriate to the situation and keep the game moving. Conflict can come from sources such as players, coaches, managers, spectators and even fellow umpires – it often stems from pressure and disagreement over decisions.This topic is covered extensively in Module 1 (1.4 Technique – Man and player Management), please refer to this section.
