Having discussed the factors of time management to be analyzed, one would be able to appreciate why only selected events in the two events can be analyzed based on time management. Such factors, not so many though, are factors directly attributable to the Olympic planning and organizing committee. Even so, it is vital to point out that professional opinion of the director of Beijing’s Olympic opening ceremony was that it would be wrong to compare the two Olympics. However, for purposes of academic interests, a comparison is so vital in the sense that it offers an opportunity for improvement in case something went wrong.
