5 ©2007 ViTAL Economy, Inc. 5 Chapter 7: Roadmap to Success 7.01 Readiness to Support a Long-Term Connect SI Initiative Southern Illinois "Garden of the Gods" As the six preceding Chapters in this RA have shown, SI has made important progress towards establishing the foundation of a SI-wide transformation. However, unless the barriers identified in RA are mitigated, the unique assets of SI may languish and the rich global opportunities identified in this RA may pass the region by.

6 ©2007 ViTAL Economy, Inc. 6 SI Progress Towards Readiness 1,000+ Connect SI participants have worked toward building a foundation for hope through investment of tens of thousands of service hours Collaborative funding from local governments, corporations, NGOs, higher education institutions, small and large healthcare systems, state and federal agencies attests to the desire to manifest a robust SI future Network provider collaboration has increased broadband availability by 64% across SI through over $24 million of private investments Healthcare provider collaboration has achieved significant progress towards addressing critical skills shortages and improved health outcomes by cooperating instead of competing Connect SI asset mapping has uncovered opportunities to collaborate across the Region that would not have been possible before leading to numerous short-term wins and long-term opportunities for growth 7.01 Readiness to Support a L/T Connect SI Initiative

7 ©2007 ViTAL Economy, Inc. 7 SI Barriers to Readiness Continued reliance on state and federal resources as primary sources of capital to fund long-term initiatives rather than to prioritize collaborative funding alliances at the local level breaking old behaviors is essential Critical mass of Connect SI champions has not yet been achieved need to triple its champions to >3,000 active participants, who believe that a climate of economic opportunity is possible for Southern Illinois Imbedded focus of funding, policy & behaviors on industrial attraction and big employment announcements as the solution to economic growth versus growing small employer KBE firms (21st Century growth engines) that dont garner big headlines Limited recognition of the depth, breadth and length of commitment needed at the leadership, citizen, government, business and media levels to transform a limited growth old economy into an innovation growth economy of unlimited opportunity Insufficient commitment of the time, talent and resources of existing SI leadership to expand the next generation leaders and to grow the skills necessary to collaboratively become One Region with One Vision 7.01 Readiness to Support a L/T Connect SI Initiative

8 ©2007 ViTAL Economy, Inc. 8 Chapter 7: Roadmap to Success 7.02 Impact of Achieving 2012 Goals Southern Illinois "Garden of the Gods" The net effect of creating 43,300+ new jobs in Southern Illinois is enormous in terms of stimulus to SIs economy, increased taxes, and overall prosperity. This section summarizes SI regional assets, major trends, potential impact of Milestone #1 goals vs. Milestone #5 industry cluster targets, industry cluster priorities, overall impact, and key measures of success.

9 ©2007 ViTAL Economy, Inc. 9 Milestone #1 Goal Setting vs. Milestone #5 Industry Cluster Targets Milestone #1 focused on a top-down approach to goal setting: m Set overall goals for population, labor participation rates, job growth, job improvement, etc. m Did not look at specific industry sectors m Defined a sense of urgency and a compelling vision for transforming SI economy m Communicated SI top-down goals, urgency and vision publicly on 26 Feb 2007 Milestone #5 focused on a bottoms-up approach to setting industry cluster targets: m Assessed impact of local, regional, national and global research on achieving top- down goals m Summarized results of regional COI work efforts from Milestone#2-4b meetings and COI work groups m Validated SI's ability to achieve and exceed 26 Feb 2007 top-down goals by priority industry sectors m Established more targeted goals for Phase 2 implementation which would assure achievement of Connect SI compelling vision The following slides illustrate the impact on SI first from the original Milestone #1 goals and then from the Milestone #5 industry cluster targets 7.02 Impact of Achieving 2012 Goals

18 ©2007 ViTAL Economy, Inc. 18 Chapter 7: Roadmap to Success 7.03 Path Forward & Overall Timeline Southern Illinois "Garden of the Gods" This section outlines the key steps in transforming SIs economy from a Climate of Limited Opportunity to a Climate of Unlimited Opportunity. The Collaboration theme discussed throughout this RA is fundamental to SIs future success not just in leveraging the unique assets of the Region, but in demonstrating the willingness of all sectors (public & private) to be integral participants in manifesting that success.

19 ©2007 ViTAL Economy, Inc. 19 Actions Fundamental to SI Economic Prosperity (1 of 2) Address SI Dilemma transition from a Climate of Limited Opportunity to a Climate of Unlimited Opportunity m SI citizens must believe that they have the ability to take control of their destiny m Education of SI uniqueness and opportunity is critical to turning belief into action Increase SIs private sector contribution from 46% to national level of 65%; reduce SIs dependence on public sector income from 54% to national level of 36% by 2012 m Critical to establish an SI climate of innovation versus a climate of risk-aversion m Requires a 30% increase in private sector wage contribution to personal income Improve global export literacy and double global export value in SI s economy m Required to increase flow of external capital into SI, hence investment attraction m Leverages SI indigenous resources from Sow Our Own to Grow Our Own Implement economic strategies to grow SI economy at 3.85% vs 1.34% annually m Increased prosperity is dependent on accelerated growth m SI infrastructure investments cannot be met without increasing economic growth 7.03 Path Forward and Overall Timeline

20 ©2007 ViTAL Economy, Inc. 20 Actions Fundamental to SI Economic Prosperity (2 of 2) Change economic development focus from legacy (manufacturing & commodity agriculture) to KBE global products & services m This is where the high value, high wage job growth opportunities abound m Emphasizes growth of firms not negatively impacted by Illinois weaknesses Grow breadth and depth of Connect SI visionary leaders & champions m Commitment to a compelling long-term Vision by more leaders is critical m Critical mass of 3,000+ champions is critical to sustain this fundamental change Expand base of collaborative funding support for Connect SI strategies m Long-term consistency in strategy focus is dependent on regional control m Cavalry is coming mentality must be dispelled to transform expectations Support a long-term regional framework to guide regional growth m Regional collaboration can only take place through a regional framework m Access to a broader base of financial, data and human resources is assured 7.03 Path Forward and Overall Timeline

21 ©2007 ViTAL Economy, Inc. 21 Mindset: willingness to accept mediocrity and lack of a sense of excellence Insufficient climate of collaboration and trust making change very difficult Continuing belief that the cavalry is coming despite proof to the contrary Losing the best and brightest Lack of participation in the global economy Continued focus on traditional economic sectors in decline rather than rising economic sectors Climate of economic (and community) despair Public policy/funding priorities reinforce old economy strategies, and inhibit new ones SIs Big Dilemma: Climate of Limited Opportunity Resulted in only 1.35% AAGR for last 25 Years SIs future hangs in the balance! Fragmented and poorly leveraged Primary focus on local opportunities Insufficient # of visionary leaders Too many political boundaries Issues Weighing Down SI Indigenous Resources & Innate Talents SIs Current State 7.03 Path Forward and Overall Timeline

22 ©2007 ViTAL Economy, Inc. 22 SI Enabling Environment Challenges are at the Core of the SI Dilemma Lack of collaboration is hampering prosperity m Creates a climate and reputation of conflict and distrust m Results in an inability to fund or achieve project success due to lack of resources Listless business climate for retention and attraction m ILs court system is rated as unreasonable to business m Multiple government and taxing districts cause a confusing business environment Connectivity expansion is a marketable opportunity but literacy must increase m The recent expansion of broadband service, supported by a clearly defined goal is positioning SI for KBE growth and attraction coupled with an investment in connectivity literacy SIs natural environment is neither widely respected nor being leveraged m The region has the largest concentration of natural environment assets in the Mid- west, but is not reaping the benefits Reluctance to change will guarantee an atmosphere of dependency m The new economy is changing faster than ever before primarily driven by innovation and technological advancements that will not wait for individuals and companies to keep pace m Rural regional economies that can effectively meet the workforce needs and business demands of a KBE economy will be the envy of others 7.03 Path Forward and Overall Timeline

23 ©2007 ViTAL Economy, Inc. 23 Enabling Environment Recommendations Are The Solution To SI Dilemma Improving the enabling environment of SI is the key to addressing the SI dilemma m The results of the Readiness Assessment clearly demonstrate that SI behavior and mindset is the only thing standing in the way m Without the changes proposed in this chapter, SI will be far less able to leverage its unique indigenous resources to take advantage of current global and national trends Our primary recommendations: #1 Implement a regional Multi-Media Branding Strategy for internal and external markets #2 Create a Crossing Boundaries Institute linked into existing leadership programs #3 Implement a Youth Engagement Strategy #4 Incorporate Collaborative Funding as a fundamental part of the DNA of SI #5 Establish a Comprehensive SI Data Mining Portal that is a model for Illinois #6 Implement Broadband Connectivity Infrastructure and Digital Literacy Strategy #7 Develop an SI Livable Community Forum The successful transformation of SI from a limited to an unlimited growth economy depends upon the ability of the Region to change its thinking & behaviors The successful transformation of SI from a limited to an unlimited growth economy depends upon the ability of the Region to change its thinking & behaviors 7.03 Path Forward and Overall Timeline

24 ©2007 ViTAL Economy, Inc. 24 Less willingness to accept mediocrity Improving climate of collaboration and trust making change less difficult Losing fewer of the best and brightest Less focus on traditional economic sectors in decline Less of a climate of economic despair Public policy/funding priorities shifting SIs Potential: Climate of Unlimited Opportunity Linked across the Region & highly leveraged Active visionary leaders Collaboration abounds Boundaries are being crossed New behaviors Global focus Issues Weighing Down SI Indigenous Resources & Innate Talents Results in over 3.85% or better AAGR for NEXT 25 Years Growth & prosperity realized! SIs Future State 7.03 Path Forward and Overall Timeline

25 ©2007 ViTAL Economy, Inc. 25 Phase 2 Priorities for Success (1 of 2) 1. Expand NP-COI connectivity broadband deployment with professional support for an additional twelve months; this includes expansion of enterprise applications for healthcare, education, R&D and tech transfer research collaboration with private sector 2. Broaden base of Connect SI champions and gain re-commitment of Phase 1 champions. Repeat January-June 2006 road show using RA data to garner additional support 3. Invest robust resources in a collaborative funding strategy to raise $1.5 million in cash and in-kind resource commitments to Connect SI for FY 2008 and for FY Establish Connect SI as a regional data portal for SI. Local municipalities are already benefiting from regional data assembled by Connect SI, which has helped local economic development professionals attract businesses to SI. There is no other long-term reliable source for consistent, accurate and integrated data for SI 5. Select four industry clusters for Phase 2 research and implementation in Recruit private sector leadership teams during first quarter of 2008 for each industry cluster. Identify experienced rural industry cluster research teams to guide cluster teams 6. Commit to a sense of urgency that is communicated region wide. Educate citizens and leaders on the economic realities and need for change today rather than tomorrow. Invest in Connect SI marketing strategy in support of broadband, champion development, collaborative funding and private sector recruitment goals 7.03 Path Forward and Overall Timeline

26 ©2007 ViTAL Economy, Inc. 26 Phase 2 Priorities for Success (2 of 2) 7. Leadership Advisory Committee agrees to resource the Healthcare COI to aggressively achieve the transformative qualitative and quantitative goals it established in Phase 1 8. Focus four regional COIs on recruitment of industry cluster participants for prioritized SI-wide industry clusters. Have COI leadership guide implementation of at least two short term win opportunities every six months, which are connected to achieving COI goals 9. Fund and establish a collaborative leadership institute to address critical shortage of visionary leadership across SI. Include youth engagement in this, so that youth brain drain can be successfully addressed for the long-term 10. Review RA findings and work with ViTAL Economy to integrate RA findings into the SI-wide economic strategy to be released in 1st quarter Commit to obtain and invest resources required to implement Connect SI Phase 2 economic strategy and achieve qualitative and quantitative goals starting April This includes approval of Connect SI Phase 2 implementation timelines, funding and professional resources 12. Develop a 501(c)(3) framework for Connect SI, so that independent government and foundation funding, that cannot be received by SIU or ManTraCon, can be accessed. This is particularly critical with regard to approved legislation dealing with digital divide funds from state and federal sources 7.03 Path Forward and Overall Timeline

27 ©2007 ViTAL Economy, Inc. 27 All new jobs created by Industry Clusters will be targeted to include private payer health benefits for workers and families All new jobs created by Industry Clusters will be targeted to include private payer health benefits for workers and families Phase 2 Industry Cluster Priorities for Achieving 2012 Connect SI Goals The following Industry Clusters emerged from the extensive COI asset mapping and opportunity assessment activities during Phase 1: m Tourism m Bio-Agriculture m Knowledge Based Enterprises (KBE) Healthcare Technology Products & Services Advanced Manufacturing Recreational, Marine, Hunting, Technology Products & Services Visual Creative & Performing Arts and Services International Incubation and Innovation Green Technologies Homeland Security Response and Services Life Sciences, Plant and Animal m Global Workforce Opportunities m Energy m Mining Technology m Transportation, Logistics & Warehousing m Senior Living 7.03 Path Forward and Overall Timeline

28 ©2007 ViTAL Economy, Inc. 28 Collaborative Investment Rationale Collaborative funding of Connect SI initiatives is one of the most critical determinants of SIs ability to sustain a long term transformation of Southern Illinois economy Successful collaborative funding starts at the local and regional level and is only then matched by state, federal and foundation investments this is critical to reversing SIs decades long sense of external dependency ViTAL Economy initiatives, which commit to collaborative funding as a core principle, experience anywhere from a 5:1 to 12:1 ratio of external-to- local/regional investments the average ratio over 15 years is 7:1 A $1,500,000 annual collaborative funding goal is recommended a strategy for accomplishing and exceeding this goal is on the following slide Connect SI leadership commitment to this strategy is critical. While ViTAL Economy can help guide and train leaders to implement this strategy, it must be locally led by a committed group of SI-based leaders 7.03 Path Forward and Overall Timeline
