Under a paradigm of Tell, Show, Let, Help, the Innovation Playbook for Government Change Agents (Cal-IPGCA) is a 5-month immersive 58 Professional Training Hours (PTHs) intrapreneurial training program that scales a culture of leadership and innovation in California state government for full-time trainees and 28 PTHs for part-time trainees. ORA Systems, Inc., chairs the program and is responsible for the design and implementation of the Cal-IPGCA, in collaboration with the program's Executive Sponsors and management team.

Hailed by state leadership as a "transformational" program, Cal-IPGCA builds a statewide culture of innovation and creates a common language of leadership to develop and inspire our workforce to deliver great results for Californians. Cal-IPGCA trains in the classroom and via an Experiential Learning Management System (eLMS) 3-days per week. Our governmental executive partners are GovOps and DGS. The Asian Pacific State Employees Association (APSEA) is our non-governmental executive sponsor. The KollaborNation platform brings an interactive 24/7 community for Cal-IPGCA Trainees (full and part-time), trainees' supervisors, and the Cal-IPGCA Board of Advisors. In 2017, full-time trainees benefited through the sponsorship support of the University of Southern California, Sol Price School of Public Policy (Sacramento Campus). USC provided 360 Performance Evaluations and Executive Coaching.

Cal-IPGCA meets the State of California's biennial leadership training requirements. (Government Code19995.4. Effective July 1, 2016).

CAL-IPGCA HISTORY: The Cal-IPGCA Program was launched in 2017 under the executive governmental sponsorship of GovOps and DGS, but its current status was the result of iterating a 5-year Leadership and Innovation Program that was initiated in 2012 and was known as the Navigating Leadership Program (NLP). NLP's history is a tribute to the launch of Cal-IPGCA. A consistent Leadership Advisory Board participation still maintains their involvement today in the new Cal-IPGCA Program.



This section features the 4 Panels and accompanying videos that cover the 6 Innovation Priorities of the Cal-IPGCA 2017 Cohort Series.

Cal-IPGCA Change Challenge Panels feature state leaders that Challenge Change in the State of California. They are a program pillar for informing our Cal-IPGCA Training Teams as they advance 6 enterprise-wide innovation priorities (Moonshot Projects). Facilitated under a moderated Q&A format, they offer our trainees pioneering viewpoints on some of the most difficult enterprise challenges facing the State of California.

Another Foundational Pillar of the Innovation Playbook is the identification of organizational challenges and issues (Innovation Priorities) affecting more than one agency or department that can benefit from a cross-organizational leadership team's assessment and recommendations.

The innovation priorities for the Cal-IPGCA 2017 Series were established through the California Government Operations Agency (GovOps) and the Innovation Pipeline that is administered by the California Department of Technology (CDT). Leaders from across the State of California submitted their challenges, with six selected for implementation under the Cal-IPGCA 2017 Cohort.

Innovation Priorities
 Risk Management
 Risk Aversion
 Change Management
 Executive Retention and Knowledge Transfer
 Implied and Unconscious Bias
 Data-Driven Management and Storytelling



"Building a Culture of Innovation in California builds an empowered workforce that ignites passion in people and organizations and fortifies connectivity in our combined stewardship to serve."

Each Cal-IPGCA Series closes with a Day of Innovation where the trainees present their culminating outcomes. The Cal-IPGCA Executive Sponsors, USC and Keynote Speaker, Robert Barton, Commissioner, California Parole Board, set the stage for the 2017 Cohort achievements that followed.


"The Innovationist…boldly grasping opportunity when it rises to explore new frontiers of innovative thoughts and ideas."

The Cal-IPGCA Innovationists are graduating full-time trainees from Cohort 2017 that volunteered to present how the Cal-IPGCA inspired their thoughts and ideas about Innovation. The speakers you'll hear are impassioned young leaders that reveal insight and provoke action.


AGENDA Note: Teams will appear in the sequence they appeared on the agenda.

Originating as Google terminology, instead of incremental improvement, a moonshot aims for an exponential improvement over what currently exists. The essence of a Moonshot is the combination of a huge problem, a re-imagined solution to that problem, and the creation of innovative ideas that can shift approach and outcomes of people, process and technology to make that solution possible. The Cohort 2017 Innovation Teams were given 6 Enterprise-Wide Government Challenges, identified by the Government Operations Agency in collaboration with the California Department of Technology, Office of Digital Innovation.


Not only is recognition the 8th Step in Director Kim's 8-Step Path to Achieving Innovative Outcomes, in Cal-IPGCA, Recognition is a journey, not a destination. There are no titles and everyone has a voice, everyone has value and everyone is heard. Thus, there is not a hierarchy that defines your participation. There are no boundaries, limitations and barriers for "Recognition" within Cal-IPGCA - the playing field is level and the opportunities to be seen and heard and to contribute exponentially are open-ended!
