Thanks so much to everyone for the time and effort devoted to reviewing and improving upon our division-wide condition changes that were first drafted Aug. 29-30. Following further discussion that leaders had with the Program Teams, peers, Statewide Programs and Strategic Initiatives, we received tremendous feedback and suggestions to improve. The timeline was short, the timing was poor, and as something new for the division, the work was a challenge!
Katherine Webb-Martinez, Mark Bell and I have reviewed the recommendations you have submitted. Where there were multiple suggestions for amending the original 19 condition changes, we have discussed the recommendations and made a judgment call. Overall, the recommended changes were not drastically different from the original list (that’s a good thing!) but improvements were made. The final list is now a bit longer but still manageable. This list will be coded into the new Project Board, replacing what was Knowledge Areas.
A self-identified group of 12 Program Team Leaders, SI Leaders, Statewide Program and Institute Directors will work together and, using this new list plus the 2025 Strategic Vision, revise the Public Values Statements drafted back in May. The group plus Mark and Katherine will be working through the remainder of fall, and perhaps into winter, to develop a revised list.
We have a number of identified uses for the condition changes and public value statements, including the original purpose of looking at our current efforts as they relate to the 2025 Strategic Vision.
Thanks again to everyone. This is a great list!
