The focus of The Association Renewal Blog is on associations, of course, but I think that Jamie Notter (my Association Renewal business partner and blog co-author) and I write about issues that have relevance beyond associations. I want to bring this blog to your attention and encourage you to check it out. To help make it more accessible for you, I have added a feed for the blog to the TDI sidebar (scroll down) so you can see the five most recent posts. Thanks in advance for giving it a chance. Let me know what you think!
I'm very excited to be attending the Fortune Innovation Forum next week in New York City. The program looks excellent and I will be blogging the meeting. The blog
has been up for about a month it it is very good. I was hoping to
contribute even before the meeting but...well you get the picture.
The innovators to be discussed during the meeting include HBO, Starbucks, Fedex and Target. I'm particularly excited to hear from Blue Ocean Strategy co-author and INSEAD professor W. Chan Kim.
Professor Kim will address the subject of blue ocean strategy, i.e.,
the idea of creating entirely new markets through value innovation
rather than competing head-to-head. I'm a big fan of the book,
and I am incorporating its ideas into my work in the association
Anyway, there are many other outstanding speakers who will be at the
conference, as well as some other cool experiences. I'll write
more about it all next week when I'm there!
Since it's inception in September, the focus of The Daily Innovator has been on innovation as a general concept that applies to all workers in all organizations. This focus will continue, but I have decided to create a new category for posts directed at my specific audience, which is the non-profit association community.
My blogger friends are giving me a bit of a (wholly deserved) hard time about The Daily Innovator not exactly being "daily" for more than a month now. I'm going to use this category to help simplify things with the goal of posting more frequently. It's an experiment. I'll keep you posted on any broader implications!
