Safe Return to Work for Indiana’s Manufacturing, Logistics, and Warehousing Sectors: Keeping our Hoosier workers safe so they can restart the state was released to share best practices of Indiana companies and others around the world in this unprecedented time. It identifies recommendations and best practices from public health experts and organizations, as well as other officials, to assist Hoosier employers both in continuing to navigate the COVID-19 pandemic and in restarting operations.

The edition is focused on the manufacturing, logistics and warehousing organizations, and includes two primary sections:

  • Key Decisions to Consider Prior to Restarting Your Workplace: Describes for employers the four key principles they will need to consider as they seek to re-open their operations following the COVID-19 shelter-in-place order and temporary closures.

The Central Indiana Corporate Partnership (CICP), along with a special initiative led by Cummins Chairman and CEO Tom Linebarger and senior members of the Cummins team, working together with other regional business leaders, produced the playbook. In addition, leaders from several of CICP’s branded initiatives — particularly Mark Howell, from Conexus Indiana, and Paul Mitchell, from Energy Systems Network—made substantial contributions to this effort.

CICP releases 2018 annual report

March 27, 2019

2018 saw continued progress, and it was an especially productive year for CICP, its projects and its initiatives (AgriNovus Indiana, Ascend Indiana, BioCrossroads, Conexus Indiana, Energy Systems Network and TechPoint).

The early 2018 launch of Bruce Katz and Jeremy Nowak’s book, The New Localism—with its extensive focus on CICP as a global model for communities in structuring and governance of economic development activity— spurred considerable publicity and acclaim for CICP. In addition, as CICP looks to ensure the organization is continuing to deliver maximum impact, it released two landmark pieces of research, the Brookings Institution’s Advancing Opportunity in Central Indiana and the Brookings Institution’s Metropolitan Policy Program report, Rethinking Cluster Initiatives.

As CICP enters its 20th year, it’s important to look back to see how far we’ve come, but to also focus on the future and the opportunities ahead. One of those opportunities includes CICP relocating its headquarters to the 16 Tech Innovation District in May 2020.

Advancing Opportunity in Central Indiana

December 18, 2018

The Brookings Metropolitan Policy Program has released new research that examines the presence of “good jobs” that provide stable employment, middle-class wages and benefits across occupations and industries in the Central Indiana region, particularly for the more than 650,000 prime-age workers in the region who do not hold a bachelor’s degree.

Importantly, the report, commissioned by the Central Indiana Corporate Partnership (CICP), looks not only at the good jobs that provide those advantages today, but also at “promising jobs” that provide stepping stones to the region’s middle class over time.

November 29, 2018

The Central Indiana Corporate Partnership (CICP) commissioned a study by TEConomy Partners, Clusters and Disruptors: Envisioning Central Indiana’s Economic Future in a Time of Change, to better understand the forces of change that will likely drive Central Indiana’s economy for the next decade.

The “Clusters and Disruptors” report contains the following:

  • In-depth quantitative and qualitative analytics to identify key advanced industry clusters for the region.
  • A detailed situational assessment of these clusters and the associated regional technology-based economic development ecosystem (including benchmarking against aspirational competitors).
  • Robust consideration to megatrends, convergence forces, and disruptive technologies likely to shape the regional economic landscape over the forthcoming decade.

Rethinking Cluster Initiatives – Brookings Institution

July 25, 2018

A new report from the Brookings Metropolitan Policy Program argues that initiatives to support and grow industry clusters remain a potentially powerful strategy to jumpstart local economic growth, but only if certain market and civic fundamentals are in place.

The report, Rethinking cluster initiatives, by Ryan Donahue, Brookings fellow Joseph Parilla, and Brookings nonresident senior fellow Brad McDearman, takes a fresh look at the concept of industry clusters—groups of firms that gain a competitive advantage through local proximity and interdependence—and offers practical guidance for metropolitan leaders considering investments in cluster initiatives, drawing on five in-depth case studies.

The Central Indiana Corporate Partnership (CICP) is cited as a successful model and national case study.
