The Basics of Institutional Development in the Scout Movement

  • 1st Jan 2000

This book explains the necessity of organizations to be created in the Scout Movement and why their functioning is essential to the survival of Scouting. The complexity,of the development of our contemporary world requires structuring of multi-function activities. All the above refers also to Scouting.

The author thinks that the most important element in the activities of organizations is the process of their efficient management. In order to give readers a better understanding of this concept the author considers in this book, by historical examples, types of the most effective organizations.

A special attention is given to the issues related to the integration within Scouting of such system processes as a movement and an organization. The basis of integration is a voluntary acceptance by the participants of the Scout Movement of organizational principles aimed exclusively at the development of the Movement.
