At least twice each year, the commissioner should do a collaborative, detailed assessment with the unit to determine its strengths and needs. Using the appropriate unit assessment form, the commissioner and the unit Key 3 complete the assessment together. The form is divided into the components used in the Journey to Excellence scorecard. From this assessment, a Unit Service Plan can be developed.
Unit Service Plan Resources
- Unit Service Plan PowerPoint presentation Provides a fundamental understanding of the concepts for Commissioner Tools. The Unit Service Plan was developed to help improve unit performance based on unit needs discovered during a Detailed Assessment. Commissioner Tools incorporates both the Detailed Assessment and the Unit Service Plan
- Why Do a Unit Service Plan?
Commissioner Assessment Forms. These blank detailed assessment forms taken from Commissioner Tools may be used as paper information-capture sheets if a commissioner does not want to work on the computer live while contacting a unit. Alternatively, they may be used by a commissioner who does not have access to a computer, and a “commissioner friend” will enter the information. They may also be used when collaborating with a unit to complete the assessment of a unit’s strengths and needs.
Unit Assessment Forms. These blank assessment forms taken from Commissioner Tools may be given to a unit leader to complete prior to the Collaborative Assessment being completed by the unit Key 3 and the unit commissioner. Ideally, the unit should complete these within my.scouting.org when they are sent to them by the commissioner; however, they may be used as a worksheet prior to entry in my.scouting.org. They may also be used when collaborating with a unit to complete the assessment of a unit’s strengths and needs.
Scenarios for Unit Assessments. These scenarios can be used for training commissioners in how to do a unit assessment.
Monthly Commissioner Tools Reports
Reports, generated monthly, summarize the contact activity from Commissioner Tools by district within councils. At the end of the report, area and region results are summarized.
