- Transformation Tuesday messages will continue beyond the Transformation Effort.
- Feedback from employees and partners will also continue to be important to California State Parks.
Welcome to 2017! Hope you had a memorable holiday season with your loved ones.
This is an exciting year for California State Parks. Our effort to make long-lasting transformative change in the department officially ends in February. However, as a department, we should never stop looking for ways to improve. Transforming ourselves should be part of our DNA.
“To me what success looks like is that when we hit month 24 of the Transformation effort, month 25 feels no different than month 24. Because to be a thriving, relevant organization you need to constantly think about improvements,” said California State Park’s Director Lisa Mangat at a leadership meeting in December 2015.
Therefore, updates on the Transformation initiatives and projects, Organizational Structure Opportunities Project, and other important news will continue to be shared with you beyond month 24 via Transformation Tuesday messages.
We also invite you to continue talking to your Transformation Agents or begin doing so.
Agents are part of the department’s Transformation Agent Network. Thirty-three employees were selected by their managers to serve as field or division ambassadors to keep staff informed on important key departmental and Transformation initiatives.
These agents have helped open up another line of two-way communication within California State Parks. Their feedback on our transformative efforts has been very valuable to our leaders. As a result, the network will continue being a communication tool beyond the Transformation effort.
Below you will find the list of Transformation Agents. We encourage you to connect with these valuable resources.
