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.

What’s Next for the Hoosier Heartland? <ul><li>Ed Morrison </li></ul><ul><li>Purdue Center for Regional Development </li></ul><ul><li>September, 2010 </li></ul>
Question: What would it look like if the Hoosier Heartland were a national leader in regional transformation? What would we have to do?
Let’s start at the beginning...Any region creates wealth by managing three flows of money
Our grandfathers created wealth by building large, globally competitive, hierarchical organizations capable of moving a lot of stuff... Hulett ore unloaders, Cleveland Automobile assembly line, Detroit Early Westinghouse assembly line, Pittsburgh
They created an enormous amount of wealth this way... Andrew Carnegie’s Gospel of Wealth underscored the importance of giving back to the community. He created Carnegie libraries all over the country.
Starting in the 1960’s, U.S. companies exercised global dominance...but the situation was also starting to change, slowly -- and imperceptibly at first The French raised alarms about the U.S. in the late 1960’s and started the move toward a united Europe
By the late 1960’s we could see changes taking place in large industries like steel... Integrated steel works, Gary Youngstown Sheet and Tube, Youngstown
In the 1970‘s and1980’s, large companies began building global manufacturing networks and integrated supply chains
In the 1990’s, the Internet exploded Millions of Users
So, here’s what’s happening...Our Grandfather’s economy hit the top of its S-Curve in the 1970s
Beginning in the 1980’s a new S-Curve began to form, based on networked business models
We are now in the midst of this fundamental shift and it’s continuing to gain momentum...
Transforming economies involves connecting assets for our Grandfather’s economy to opportunities in our Grandchildren’s economy... To manage this transition, we developed “Strategic Doing”
Why Strategic Doing? Because the disciplines of strategic planning do not work well in open networks...They do not lead to the formation and guidance of collaboration A small group at the top did the thinking A larger group at the bottom did the doing
We started with a basic proposition: Innovation in a network economy emerges from strategic collaborations that are focused, pragmatic, and flexible. Source: Modification of drawing presented by the Council on Competitiveness
Strategic Doing is simple, repeatable discipline to produce “link and leverage” strategies Strategic Doing produces alignments, links and leverage
Disruptive innovation Swarm innovation Strategic Doing produces a swarm of innovations
Nation’s first public CAD Lab Nation’s First Green Manufacturing Certification Nationally Recognized Model of Rural High School Reform
Nation’s First Guitar Summer Camp to Introduce Manufacturing Careers A Nationally Recognized Model for Providing Wellness Services to Small Manufacturers
Nation’s Highest Concentration of Project Lead the Way High Schools

“ [The Hoosier Heartland] currently is home to a laboratory of initiatives that align economic development goals with workforce and entrepreneurship initiatives as part of a regional strategy.” International Economic Development Council
Brevard County, FL is using Strategic Doing to manage the NASA Shuttle Shutdown
Civic leaders all over the country are recognizing the value of Strategic Doing

Question: What would it look like if the Hoosier Heartland were a national leader in regional innovation? We already are! How will you use your leadership skills to contribute to our transformation?
If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader John Quincy Adams
