Dr. Jose G. Lepervanche: “Scouting shaped me as a young sea scout in Venezuela to be a Navy Officer and a global citizen. As the son of a widow, my Sea Scout group activities and camping and leaders were the roles models who guided me as a person and as a professional. I was part of a worldwide movement that is still impacting me. I became Scouter in Venezuela and later in the USA. The values I learned and the role models I followed were fundamental to do the same. Leading by example is my commitment to Scouting as a person, professional, and professor. Scouting is the best outdoors experiential educational method to form the leaders of tomorrow.”

The BAS in Supervision and Management program has incorporated innovative learning strategies and contents from different industries and organizations. They include corporations, government, academia, nonprofits, churches, and youth groups. Managing people requires values and methods that could come from other areas beyond the workplace and traditional content developed for management education. This study takes the risk of exploring outside-academia learning strategies and the essential characteristics of the World Scouting Movement and its contribution, not only to the education of young people, but also to the education of potential managers or leaders outside Scouting, with emphasis in the workplace.
