  • This is what Brookings said it wants:Key Strategies Driving the Plan (MAX 2 slides per lever)Summarize the key strategies for the plan. In Chicago, I know there are ten. In NE Ohio, the goal is to show those five key strategies or so that emerged from the market levers (and updated too if you’d like)HOWEVER: It is very unclear to me whether/how Brookings wants us to address every lever. There’s a reference to MAX 2 slides per lever. Do you know what that means?Here are the Levers and the relevant initiatives:Build and Sustain Industry and Occupational Clusters: We put PRISM under this one…As well as our efforts to build new new industry clusters.Human Capital: Talent Dividend & WorkAdvance (formerly NEO@Work)Innovation and Entrepreneurship Infrastructure: JumpStart & Third FrontierEnhance Spatial Efficiency: NEOSCCEffective Public and Civic Culture & Institutions: Cleveland PlusProvide Information Resources: OneCommunityI don’t know if those are still relevant or not…My suggestion is we talk broadly about “effective civic culture” in the first bullet; we talk about the inter-connectedness of all of the levers, particularly spactial efficiency and human capital in the second and you begin to drill down on JS and Prism in the final bullet.
  • Slide 7: ImpactJumpstart: we’ve been at it longer so we should emphasize impact“leave town” to “Move Here”Give the capital #s from JS, but tell the story of KNOTICEI don’t know if those are still relevant or not…My suggestion is we talk broadly about “effective civic culture” in the first bullet; we talk about the inter-connectedness of all of the levers, particularly spactial efficiency and human capital in the second and you begin to drill down on JS and Prism in the final bullet.
  • PRISM implementation will be led by MAGNET (Manufacturing Advocacy & Growth Network)Supported by business community, county, state & federal government, local philanthropic organizationsForecast: to generate an estimated 3,200 jobs and $470 million in incremental gross regional product within 8 years Initial OutcomesCurrently PRISM has 12 firms in its portfolio. Together those firms are targeting the development of 12-14 new products, $275 million in new revenue and 450 new jobs by the end of 2014.

  • - Provided a frame to create greater alignment to address regional priorities- Helps to sustain shared commitment, responsibility and valueSlide 10 – Impact with gov’tAlignment makes it easier to secure state and federal resources to support actionsState and feds always spend money, having a regional plan helps make sure the money is spent better
  • Sustaining commitment demands a shared understanding (MBP can help create that understanding)Building stronger connections among assets generates better results (prism working with universities, nasa…)How you work together as important as what you work on
