  • What is the grand vision for the Foundation’s future? How can it better support the University? In this day and age, UWM does not expect to build the critical infrastructure to become a world-class research university the way it was done in Madison. It cannot rely almost exclusively on the State to grow its academic and research enterprise. At UWM we need to create a public/private infrastructure that leverages the best of both worlds. At the Foundation, we have an opportunity to: [read slide] This is a bold vision. It is different from what we have done in the past. It will not be easy, but it is possible. And it is the only way the campus will realistically be able to reach its goals in the long term.

    Today’s Roadmap
  • We live in a networked world Internet map of city-to-city connections Source: chrisharrison.net
  • The iPhone production network Question: Who makes the iPhone? Answer: A network led by Apple
  • Question: How many companies made the Wizard of Oz? Answer: One (Metro-Goldwyn Mayer)
  • Question: How many companies made the Spider Man 3? Answer: Fifty-six (working in a network)
  • Question: How did regions function in a pre-networked world? Answer: Silos
  • Question: How do regions function in a networked world? Answer: Still Silos
  • We need new approaches to link and leverage assets within our communities and regions
    • Why networks?
    • Strategic Doing in a Nutshell
    • What Strategic Doing Delivers
    • Creating the Hub for Strategic Doing
    • Practicing Strategic Doing
    • Applying Strategic Doing to Shreveport EECS
    Today’s Roadmap
  • Strategic planning evolved to handle the complexities of managing large hierarchies...like the military and Fortune 500 companies A small group at the top did the thinking A larger group at the bottom did the doing
  • As organizations have become more networked, older strategic planning models do not work so well. The reason: There is no top or bottom to a network.
  • Dilbert emerged to make fun of strategy in a hierarchical world...
  • Organizations have been moving toward teams...where there is no separation of thinking from doing
  • Strategic Doing is a discipline to enable teams of people to do complex projects in these open networks
  • Most places: People and organizations work in isolation trying their best Strategic Planning: A few people try to sort it all out (but it often does not work) Strategic Doing: A continuous process of aligning, linking and leveraging
  • With Strategic Doing, leaders guide open conversations to translate ideas in to action... Key Insight: People move in the direction of their conversations
  • Strategic Doing is simple, but not easy. It takes practice to keep focused on four key questions... What could we do together? What should we do together? What will we do together? How will we learn together?
  • Strategic Doing begins when a core team of people agrees to take responsibility for the Strategic Doing process... The Core Group agrees to use a Strategic Doing process to produce and update a Strategic Action Plan EECS Steering Committee
  • The Core Team identifies focus areas of opportunities to produce dramatically better results.... Building Energy Efficiency Transportation / Land Use Green Business Incentives / Workforce EECS steering committee
  • Within each focus area, teams start with initiatives or projects Building Energy Efficiency Transportation / Land Use Green Business Incentives / Workforce EECS steering committee
  • 30 Days The process of shaping a strategy is continuous
  • The team starts with Strategic Action Plan Version 1.0, then 1.1, then 1.2 and so on... 1.1 1.2 1.0 1.3
  • Strategic Doing is not that much different than planning a family vacation
    • Why networks?
    • Strategic Doing in a Nutshell
    • What Strategic Doing Delivers
    • Creating the Hub for Strategic Doing
    • Practicing Strategic Doing
    • Applying Strategic Doing to Region 4
    Today’s Roadmap
  • In hours, Strategic Doing generates all the components you need for a Strategic Action Plan to guide innovative collaborations. Strategic Doing is fast, flexible, and (surprisingly) fun.
  • Strategic Doing quickly generates “link and leverage” strategies Strategic Doing produces alignments, links and leverage A great example...The new Water Council in SE Wisconsin

    Today’s Roadmap
    • The key principles of Strategic Doing include:
    • Genuine curiosity, appreciative inquiry
    • Transparency
    • Joint accountability
    • Transformative thinking
    • The behaviors of Strategic Doing include:
    • Commitment to engage
    • Participation to contribute
    • Listening and learning
    • Collaboration and mutual respect
    • Strategic Doing needs:
    • A “safe, creative space” for creativity to take place
    • Simple rules of civility to promote “deep conversations”
  • To be innovative, we need “safe, creative” places
    • Camp Fires
    • Watering Holes
    • The Kitchen Table
    Civic forums create safe places to stretch our minds...
  • Here’s an example of how a regional hospital has created a “safe” space for innovation to take place... The Innovation Cafe at Memorial Hospital in South Bend serves no food, but offers a place “where staffers and outsiders can learn to craft new ideas."
    • What is civility and why should we care?
    • Civility represents "the sacrifices that we make for the sake of living together."
    • Without civility, we cannot do the complex thinking and experimentation that workforce development requires...
    The Thrive region of 8 counties around Madison, Wisconsin has adopted Principles of Collaboration
    • Collaborative regions require new habits of thinking and acting together.
    • Collaboration and (ultimately) competitiveness requires new habits of civic behavior so that we can get complex projects done.
    • Going alone is not an option. No one can learn fast enough.
    • Trusted relationships help us survive and thrive. They create the resiliency we need to find the opportunities and handle the shocks ahead.
    • Trust emerges when we behave in ways that build trust and mutual respect: The Golden Rule.
    • Here is an example of a regional statement of what civility means:
      • Tell truth and build trust and mutual respect
      • Do not steal, poach, or plagiarize
      • Commit to learning and sharing information
      • Focus on new ideas, our assets and our opportunities
      • Listen, link and leverage
      • Collaborate and cross boundaries
      • Disclose conflicts of interest
      • Resolve controversies quickly
      • Concentrate on outcomes, not activities
      • Teach our next generation
    • Why networks?
    • Strategic Doing in a Nutshell
    • What Strategic Doing Delivers
    • Creating the Hub for Strategic Doing
    • Practicing Strategic Doing
    • Applying Strategic Doing to Shreveport EECS
    Today’s Roadmap
  • Strategic Doing is simple, but not easy. It takes practice. We start with our assets.... What could we do together? What should we do together? What will we do together? How will we learn together?
  • What could we do together? (Critical steps to defining opportunities by linking and leveraging assets) 1. Explore the assets at the table 2. Watch for patterns and possible connections 3. Find opportunities by connecting assets (What if?)
  • Here’s an example of a worksheet to connect assets to opportunities from a Strategic Doing Pack What are the assets you can contribute or share? What are the opportunities we see when we connect these assets? Who are the partners that could be engaged in this opportunity? Example: Network of professionals committed to youth initiatives Example Opportunity 1: We could conduct monthly webinars to inform us of the innovations taking place in the region. WIB, 3 key service providers, the community college Opportunity 2: We could create weekly forums to keep people informed and build our networks... WIB, library system, community college
  • As we connect assets, we notice something strange starts to happen... The “network effect” takes hold...
  • We next need to make strategic decisions and focus What could we do together? What should we do together? What will we do together? How will we learn together?
  • What should we do together? (Critical steps to creating a focus) 1. Pick an opportunity 2. Define an outcome with 3 characteristics 3. Describe one initiative using 3 SMART Goals Where do you want to be in 3 years? SMART = Simple + Measurable +Achievable + Relevant + Time Sensitive What will people be doing? And how will they be doing it? Pick something transformative..not just something you are already doing...Pick something that you can do together that you cannot just do alone An initiative is a project

  • Here’s a worksheet for defining characteristics of an outcome...As we define outcomes clearly, sensible metrics emerge What does success look like? Define 3 characteristics of your Outcome Define a way to measure this characteristic Example: Creating a nationally recognized workforce summit that regularly pushes innovative initiatives to address the challenges of at-risk youth. Characteristic 1: Active on-line community of innovators Metric 1: Number of people engaged in our on-line network Characteristic 2: Strategy teams that engage at-risk youth as members Metric 2: Number of at-risk youth participating in our strategy sessions Characteristic 3: Example: Regular webcasts Metric 3: Number of webcasts; total number of webcast participants
  • Here’s a worksheet for SMART Goals to define an initiative Describe your initiative: Define 3 SMART Goals For this project by this date.... We will do this.... What are you going to do to achieve your outcome? Example: September 2009 We convene a core team of professionals in the region engaged with at-risk youth to complete budget and agenda for summit December 2009 Complete funding March 2010 Launch summit
  • Next, we need to make transparent commitments What could we do together? What should we do together? What will we do together? How will we learn together?
  • What will we do together? (Critical steps to making transparent commitments) 1. Write an Action Plan of who does what by when 2. Make personal commitments and share them with others
  • Here’s a worksheet for an Action Plan Action Steps: To move our project forward over the next 30 days, we will take these action steps: Responsible: By When: Date: Questions? Contact:
  • Finally, we need a clear process for learning together “what works”... What could we do together? What should we do together? What will we do together? How will we learn together?
  • How will we learn together? (Critical steps to learning together) 1. Capture your Strategic Doing Pack on the web 2. Plan the next face-to-face meeting for revisions 1.1 1.2 1.0 1.3
  • Here’s a worksheet for the Learning Process Key elements of our Learning Process: Answers: Who will compile notes from the Strategic Doing session? Who will post these notes to the web? Where, how and by when? What is the plan for the group to come back together to revise the Strategic Action Plan and continue the learning process? What other steps can we take to keep connected and expand our network?
  • Strategic Doing is like paddling a kayak in the ocean The task requires quick strategic assessments and continuous “doing”

    • Applying Strategic Doing to North Louisiana
    Today’s Roadmap
  • We can start by learning how we applied Strategic Doing to our work in North Central Indiana. We began with conventional reporting relationships. We created a core team of about 8 people from different organizations
  • We next created four strategic focus areas....these are areas of activity...”buckets”.
  • Within each of these four focus areas, we then added initiatives that we thought would be “transformative” -- replicable, scalable, and leveraged. We now have over 50 initiatives 1.0 1.1 1.2
