Good Morning Government OD Network,As some of you may already know, Karl Hebenstreit with GSA has assumed the leadership role for the Chesapeake Bay Organization Development Network (CBODN) Government Special Interest Group (SIG). He will be setting up a new group here in GovLoop social network under the name CBODN Government SIG. Please be on the 'look-out' over the next couple of weeks so that you may continue to participate in the CBODN Government SIG events. I’ll send another follow-up note when it’s available so that you can join this group. CBODN is a great resource for OD Practitioners and I would highly encourage your continued membership with CBODN and participation in this SIG. The website is at URL: http://cbodn.org/services_programs/sigs/government.html
In the interim, I’ve done a lot of soul searching on my intention behind setting-up this Government OD Network. My intention has always been to share best practices and lessons learned in the government sector. This includes federal, state and local governments in the Human Capital and Human Resources functional areas. I’ve been blessed to have made some key agency contacts that have provided timely assistance and shared their internal processes. Through this social network, I’ve learned a great deal about what we are doing that works and where we can improve.So, I’d like to continue where we left off.
The main project underway in most of our federal agencies for Human Capital and Human Resources staff is the compiling of the 2011 Human Capital Management Report. OPM has made some major changes this year to the process. So, let’s start there.Let’s get together next week, on Monday, October 24, 2011 at noon to discuss our approach and see where we can best support each other through this HCMR process. Would please review your internal process and come to Monday’s con/call with the areas where you feel your agency is the strongest and those where you need the most support?
We’ll review the HCMR process, talk about our internal strategies in obtaining the needed information and putting the document together and see where we can best support each other through this process. Please send me an email and I’ll add you to the Microsoft Outlook Meeting Notification that provides the call in information.Thanks. Looking forward to reconnecting in our virtual world!
