napa moving towards more idss
NAPA…Moving towards more IDSS
  • Vision…forecaster of the future = interactive, understands how people consume information…and helps guide them in understanding our info.
  • Moving the workforce into this new approach will require…a culture shift that most managers and employees acknowledge will be a major challenge... (Page 43)
  • The Panel finds that the promise of a Weather-Ready Nation is in jeopardy without the right investment in communication skills and relationship building to deliver the concept effectively. (Page 44)
napa leadership
  • Achieving the vision of a Weather-Ready Nation will require strong leadership.
  • The NWS faces daunting challenges in preparing the leadership cadre it will need to achieve its vision of a Weather-Ready Nation. (Page 46)
napa labor management relationships
NAPA…Labor-Management Relationships
  • From the regional and local perspectives, management and NWSEO appear to be fairly satisfied…
  • At the national level…the relationship strains when discussing potential changes to the organization and/or operations that may impact the workforce…This has affected the perception of labor management relations far beyond those at the negotiation table. (Page 47)
  • The NWS needs to re-frame the labor-management relationship starting at the national level. (Page 48)
napa local emergency managers focus group summary
NAPA…Local Emergency Managers Focus Group Summary
  • …extremely complimentary of the products and services they receive from the NWS. (Page 101)
  • …overwhelmingly local EMs deal with the Warning Coordination Meteorologist, the Meteorologist-in-Charge, and the forecasters on duty.
  • …overwhelmingly agreed that the current arrangement of WFOs works.
  • They are worried that the next step is for NWS to reduce services the EMs see as vital to their decision making processes. With a reduction in resources, local EMs are worried about possible future consolidation of offices.
napa change
  • The Panel finds that investing in change has great potential to strengthen the effectiveness and operational efficiency of the NWS. (Page 76)
  • To facilitate additional and ongoing change the Panel recommends that the NWS, in conjunction with its partners, develop a process and structure to guide significant organizational and operational changes. (Page 80)
