Smithsonian dives deeper into online learning. What now for associations?
The Smithsonian Institution announced earlier this week that it will venture further into online education. What can associations take from the decision and apply to their own learning opportunities? And should they be concerned about the additional competition?

By Robert C. Harris

Good data, good decisions
Big data equals big opportunity. It sounds simple, but for most associations, it’s not. Think about all the data your association has at its fingertips: Demographics of your members, conference registrations, product sales, vendor buying habits. It’s a goldmine, right? But chances are, it’s untapped. Data are crucial to associations’ decision making, so if an association has “dirty data” (vs. quality data), that’s a problem.

Indeed, it's a major problem with 75 percent of respondents in an Ernst & Young survey stating that leading a multigenerational workforce is a challenge. It's difficult to build relationships and support others when you focus on the differences. In this article, we wanted to take the opposite approach and examine the similarities between the generations.
Your brain is hardwired to make you a certain type of leader — can you overcome it?
Your monthly performance metrics are due and you’ve got to focus. But your team is hovering, they need feedback for the first phase of a new project. Can you turn away from the spreadsheet and offer something constructive feedback on a new creative project? The answer: it depends. It turns out that our brains have two distinct networks that align with two different leadership styles. Effective leadership depends on being able to switch from one to the other seamlessly in the moment. But years of management studies indicate that instead of flexing between the two, bosses tend to fall into one mode of operating, rendering them stuck and their teams ineffective.
Tagoras releases white paper 'Exploring the Fringe: Flipping, Microcredentials and MOOCs'
The new white paper defines these three fringe formats (Flipping, Microcredentials and MOOCs) — dubbed “fringe” because research shows that none has above a 10-percent adoption rate among associations — and then looks at when each might make sense for an association to pursue and factors to consider before jumping on the trendy bandwagon.
