Join us on Thursday, August 16 to hear Kent Weikel speak on Using Project Management to Develop and Strengthen an Organization!

Using Project Management to Develop and Strengthen an Organization

Leading a Cub Scout Pack or a Boy Scout Troop takes  patience, love, and a sense of adventure. But, annual planning, risk analysis, human resources, and communication are key to the success of any scouting organization, and many organizations struggle with stability as scouts grow and leadership experience ages out.  Starting a new Scout Troop brings an even greater challenge as resources are low, expectations are high, and the existence of organizational process assets is limited to what can be gleaned from other successful Troops and the District Council. Kent will discuss how he continually applies PMI concepts to the development and strengthening of Boy Scout Troop 31 in West Ashley.
