Frequently Asked Questions: New BSA Publishing Process
As you are aware, the Boy Scouts of America is in the early phases of a transition to a new publishing model aimed at reducing costs, improving efficiencies, and offering users a wider range of content in a variety of formats.
As part of this process, Pearson, one of the world’s leading publishing firms, will be managing the BSA’s publishing needs going forward. Along with BSA leaders, they are embarking on a three-month process that involves time for discovery, development, and implementation of the new model.
Over the past few weeks, members of the new publishing team have been meeting with BSA groups, departments, and teams, discussing their needs, reviewing projects, and providing an overview of the new publishing model as part of the discovery phase.
In the next phase, development, Pearson will take what they heard and design new processes to deliver information in a variety of ways—including print, web, and mobile—before moving on to the implementation phase.
As you would expect, there are a number of questions related to this major change. In the BSA Publishing FAQ, you’ll find answers to some of the most frequently asked questions. Watch for regular updates on the changes and updated FAQs.
