Paris Texas Presentation Richard Seline

  1. 1. Catalyzing  Innova.on-­‐Oriented  Growth,   Opportunity,  and  Prosperity  A  Strategy  for  Sustainable  Manufacturing  in  the  21st  Century  by  Leveraging  Water  and  Loca.on    
  2. 2. Change is Inevitable: But How Are We Prepared? It is not the strongest of species thatsurvive, nor the most intelligent, but theones most responsive to change. Charles Darwin
  3. 3. Innovation is not technology – it is new ways of doing business, new governance structures, new partnerships, new strategies. Innovation is a social process – not just technology development but commercialization based on networks of competencies and insights. Innovation is based on meritocracy – what you bring to the table is far more important than location, demographics, assets!3  
  4. 4. The Innovation Economy= Churning Economy• Businesses start & fail• Businesses locate & re-locate• Jobs are created & lost• Skills are acquired, thenbecome outdated• Workers come, workers go• Occupations grow & decline• Corporations grow &downsize
  5. 5. Innovation Thrusts and National Drivers Biotechnology Nanotechnology & Life Science & Materials Information Technology 5  
  6. 6. Regionalism on the Rise6  
  7. 7. A New Regional Model Emerging Then…. Now…. Texarkana DFW Paris Texas Manufacturing Tyler Research Trials/Testing Services Shreveport Development Texas-Mexico Houston Border Self-contained Specialized, regional clusters networked regions: Global Hubs & Nodes7  
  8. 8. A New Paradigm of the Innovation ProcessOld Paradigm New Paradigm•  Job creation   Wealth creation•  Funding competitions   Flexible investment•  Individual projects   A balanced portfolio of investments•  Funding research projects through   Investing in commercialization competitions of technology•  Managing the budget process   Maximizing the return on investment•  Bureaucracy   Entrepreneurial environment•  Inputs and activities   Results and outcomes•  Linear commercialization process   Dynamic innovation process8  
  9. 9. Business Value Chain is Decoupled The decoupling of traditional value chain activities leads to specialization of business activities…and new innovation models Product Testing & Market Manufacturing Research Development Trials & Marketing Evaluation Tool Outsource Contract CRO s Companies testing manufacturing services9  
  10. 10. Clusters of Knowledge Industry and occupational employment remain the foundation for competencies: Production Strengths •  Build-What Industry Clusters + Skill Strengths •  Know-How Occupational Clusters •  Know-Whom •  Know-What = Competitive Competencies Competencies Examples: •  Aerospace engineering •  Consumer product dev.Further refine •  Optics researchCompetency •  Drug design clinical trialsdefinitions or Additional databases: •  Bioinformaticsbenchmarking •  Patents •  Materials logistics •  R&D •  Asset Inventory •  VC
  11. 11. Connecting Innovation-Related Competencies and AssetsAs Competitive Advantage for Regional Progress: An Application Example Gap? High Gap? Advanced School- manufacturing, Community logistics College Academy Unique Infrastructure, Aligned Workforce Information Technology/ Specialize Equipment, Training & Skill Creation-Monitoring Computing/Digital Tools Programs Industry Sector 21st Century Specific Knowledge Regional & Global R&D/ Networks/ Markets Commercialization Competencies Conversion of Ideas Laboratories, research parks, Into Products, Services Social Networks, Leadership, Civic Incubators, Centers of Excellence Leading to Economic Stewardship Opportunity for All Gap? Early stage, seed Gap? Value proposition for capital outreach to non-resident CEOs, decision-makers
  12. 12. Water,  water  every  where….   So  how  do  we  make  it  our  compe==ve  and  innova=ve   advantage?  
  13. 13. The  Scien=fic  Perspec=ve  of  Water  Use  
  14. 14. It  is  not  some  far-­‐fetched,  ‘tree-­‐hugger’  philosophy…this  is  a  permanent  business  model

  29. 29. 3-Step Process to a Regional Innovation SWOT 1) DEFINE DEMAND: Determine how demographic, economic and industry conditions are driving demand for new technologies, for new skills and competencies, and for expanded assistance from the regional eco-system…within the Red River Region (Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Louisiana). 2) ASSESS SUPPLY: Determine what the current innovation capacity – assets, institutions, organizations, and individuals – must be positioned to meet this demand and how well the innovation “system” is prepared to meet the needs of companies, innovators, entrepreneurs, and citizens. 3) IDENTIFY GAPS and STRATEGIES: Determine what gaps exist in the supply-demand relationships of both the current and the future/ required innovation eco-system, and identify strategies and programs to fill these gaps.33

  31. 31. The Approach to Consensus Building: Implementation TeamsRegionnovate has had continued and proven success with the application of its “implementation team”process to multiple regions and industries. Implementation Teams consist of 15-25 leaders from business,academia, government, and various supporting institutions that are committed to change, and focused onleveraging critical federal, state and regional resources in areas with the most likelihood of success. The chartbelow depicts the general work plan.
