How smart associations are refocusing value and engagement
The Demand Perspective
Associations try very hard to provide and communicate value and are genuinely perplexed: Why don't members "get" it? Why can't we convince them that this is incredibly valuable stuff? Why are engagement and membership declining? Why is awareness and use of our benefits so low? How can members not see how great we are and want to engage with us? It's simple, really: Because your members don't see their world from your association's point of view.

From the outside-in: The path to relevance
Social Fish
"Insanity," Albert Einstein said, "is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results." For most associations, doing the same thing is operating from the inside-out — seeing the world from the perspective of their organization rather than its customers and organizing on the basis of internal logic — around silos of products and functions rather than market segments, customer challenges, projects or solutions.
