Action Scouting Manual
Put simply, scouting is the process of acquiring information
needed for an action to be successful. It is the gathering of
site-specific information that enables the action coordinator
to evaluate a potential direct action.
This manual is meant to be a basic overview of scouting techniques. No two actions are the same, and there is no way to comprehensively “teach” scouting in a manual. It takes practice and creativity to become a good scout—but we hope this manual will help get you started, and provide some tips and ideas from the experiences of action coordinators across The Ruckus Society network.
