Foresight Works Drivers of Change: A Strategic Approach to Membership Recruiting and Retention
The ASAE Foundation established ASAE ForesightWorks to be a deliberate, evidence-based research initiative that assists association professionals in environmental scanning and planning for change. The program provides a continual stream of research and resources to empower association leaders to create a culture of foresight in their organizations, leading to a vibrant culture of foresight across the association community. The program envisions a future in which association leaders not only are aware of potential changes ahead, but they are actively engaged with their organizational leadership, their staff, their members, and their peers to plan for and create opportunities from these changes.
Foresight is a critical component of business leadership, but foresight practice can add value and strategic insight to all levels and functional areas of association management. Foresight is not the same as “trends.” Trends knowledge is helpful but can only tell you what people are doing now—not what you may need to know to prepare for the future. The ASAE ForesightWorks research takes a longer view, identifying drivers of change that are or will be important to the future work of associations.
