7 You assess your performance in key areas including Activities Youth Leadership Service Projects Training Membership Retention Budget In each area, your youth leaders and Advisors rate your performance against specific standards Gold, Silver, Bronze or did not meet minimum standard And did you show improvement? You make your rating as part of your charter renewal

8 Emphasis of Journey to Excellence Continuous Improvement is a Goal – Did your Ship do measurably better in key areas than last year? – OR are you already performing at a high level in those areas? Either way, you can qualify for the standard

9 Emphasis of Journey to Excellence Program and Participation in Unit (Membership) are most important factors Administrative factors are considered Factors which are early indicators of Ship strength and health are identified and assessed

10 Heres an Example Activities: The Ship has regular activities throughout the year reflecting the interests of the youth members. Bronze – Have carried out at least four activities. 100 points Silver – Have carried out at least five activities. – 200 points Gold – Have carried out at least six activities. – 400 points

Total of 1125 points. Since Silver is 1000 and Gold is 1600, this Ship qualifies for the Silver award

16 You get Early Warning of Potential Problems The form has several requirements shown to be leading indicators of performance The more important the requirement, the higher point value it has You can be alerted if these requirements become negative and take early action to head off more severe problems

17 There is incentive for Continuous Improvement Better Performance means better Scouting for youth! Better Performance can earn a higher level of Recognition Key requirements are tracked and improvement can be quickly identified Your Council and District can help you find units at the Gold level in areas where you need help You may be able to give help in your Gold areas

18 Requirement Standards Change Each Year Each year, the requirements will be reconsidered to reflect the improved performance by units New standards for 2012 will likely be announced in early 2012 – Performance for 2011 will determine the 2012 standards, so 2011 data will need to be collected and analyzed A Silver performance for 2011 might only rate Bronze in 2012
