Update: Scouting’s Journey to Excellence to Replace Centennial Quality Recognition Program

Posted on 24 November 2010 by Dan

Post Updated with links to the requirements on National’s websites (most up to date version), Ship Requirements, and recordings of the Webinars.

Scouting’s Journey to Excellence is the new performance recognition program for Councils, Districts, and Units.  This program replaces the Centennial Quality Recognition program.  The BSA Journey to Excellence program uses a balanced approach and key performance indicators to measure performance versus process, encourage and reward success, and achieve the mission.

Information on Scouting’s Journey to Excellence on the National Website:

Here are the 2011 Journey to Excellence Requirements:

     – Journey to Excellence Criteria – Packs

     – Journey to Excellence Criteria – Troops

     – Journey to Excellence Criteria – Crews

Journey to Excellence Criteria – Ships

     – Journey to Excellence Criteria – Districts

     – Journey to Excellence Criteria – Councils

Performance measures already being considered for inclusion in the 2012 council performance recognition program will involve collecting feedback and improved scores on customer satisfaction surveys sent to parents, youth members, and charter partners.
