Sabine Germann Switzerland Steve Peck UK

Some questions
Do you have a strategy for growth in your MO/NSO ? If not why not what is getting in the way ?

If you do what is working well for your MO/NSO ?

How involved are local groups?

Why is this important?

Many organisations are losing members we need to act NOW Scouting and Guiding are great we want more young people to enjoy it There is no magic bullet

It needs a holistic approach, nationally and locally

What is a strategy
1. What is the actual situation 2. Coming from the mission and values, developing vision and strategic aims 3. Sitting some strategic objectives 4. Planning to implement the plan 5. Implementation, support, monitoring 6. Formal evaluation, celebration, continuous review

Leading & Managing

Leadership - coping with change - doing the right thing - effectiveness - creating a vision Management - coping with complexity - doing the thing right - efficiency - creating a plan
