Incremental thinking: Missing the unarticulated needs that could turn your business around
The Demand Perspective
The default thinking that keeps many associations running in place, without getting to a fundamentally different destination, is what author Andrew Razeghi calls "Incremental thinking." It results in the operational, survival mode in which many associations find themselves stuck in — merely managing for the short-term.

5 influential CEOs weigh in what makes a good leader
Entrepreneur
The question is eternal: What makes a good leader? Predictably, we have no definitive answer. But one thing is certain: As business technologies and processes evolve, hot industries come and go and employee demographics shift, the best leaders are those who can change with the times.
