    Tick Box Organisation

    Hi Wayne,

    I've become aware of this sort of statement over the last couple of years, and now on a thread relating to whether you have a NA Permit or not if it doesn't show on Compass it's cropped up again where BigBadBaloo states;

    If you do and it goes "pear-shaped" you will be dropped by TSA like a hot coal and will be unlikely to get any support in these circumstances from the hierarchy. TSA is increasingly becoming a "tick-box" organisation and this particular box will not be ticked so you will be very much on your own.
    Has TSA really reached such a position?

    He who receives a good turn should never forget it; he who does one should never remember it.

    No,
    I'm afraid the quote is a load of bunkum. We have a good tradition in Scouting of standing behind leaders when things wrong, especially in the area of activities. The only proviso is that they have to follow the rules etc. In the case of the thread in question, providing they have evidence that they have been properly authorised by their DC to undertake the activity I would expect that to be sufficient for them, although the DC should also complete their part of course.

    In my experience over the past 15 years, we have only once indicated that we would not defend an individual on the basis that they had deliberately lied concerning their actions.

    On the wider point though of "why ask that Compass should be updated" there are a number of benefits for this; it's more reliable than a small card potentially, it allows a central record to be maintained in the event of an incident, or to build a network of people with qualifications/authorities etc. Clearly the best way for us to achieve this is to provide for it in the process as well as promoting the benefits etc.

    Many thanks,
    Wayne

    Thanks Wayne, a rather helpful reply.
