Karl Ronn recently said, "Companies that think they have an innovation problem don't have an innovation problem. They have a leadership problem."

Understanding and using member value to drive engagement
The Demand Perspective
When it comes to engagement, members are in the driver's seat. The fact is, members have always engaged with an association on their own terms, based on how the members define value, not how the association thinks they should.

Here are five disruptive forces that are reshaping all nonprofit associations.
