Our Vision for a Bright Future

Our journey focuses on what we need to rebuild and reimagine to be a growing, confident and more resilient organisation.

This four-year, 2019-2022 Strategic Plan heralds a new, modern approach to Scouting across NSW. It aims to see membership growth, improve Scouts NSW sustainability and stability, and increase trust and satisfaction throughout the Scouting community.

We aim to deliver sustainable growth long into the future.

Key themes of our Strategic Plan:

Make a smarter business through increased accountability, compliance and trust

Optimus Prime was a Board-approved program of change which ran from October 2017 to March 2019. The program aimed to make Scout Business Smarter, with all projects under Optimus Prime sharing a set of benefits to increase membership, customer satisfaction and revenue while reducing cost, administration and risk. Projects under Optimus Prime followed the approved project life cycle ‘Conceive – Plan – Do – Review’.

A list of all projects can be found here.

In April 2018, uniformed and non-uniformed members and supporters begin developing the strategic plan.

They focus on the following critically important elements:

  • Preparing for a resilient and confident future
  • Planning and delivering an improved Youth Program
  • Tackle the challenges of growth, retention and working smarter
  • Positively impacting Scouting culture

Fast-forward to March 2018, and the plan officially launches in March 2019 by the Chief Scout of NSW, His Excellency General the Honourable David Hurley, Governor of New South Wales. It was launched at Government House Sydney with guests from government, industry and the Scouting community.
