Association 4.0 –  Positioning for Success in an Era of Disruption

If you’ve been hiding from the future, get ready for a reality check. The Fourth Industrial Revolution is real. It’s here. It’s now. Let the experts guide you toward making the leap to Association 4.0. Twenty-three leaders who are innovators and cultural shape-shifters share their experiences with disruption. Some were facing untenable situations and moved beyond the growing pains. Others embraced change even when it came at great professional risk.

This book is mandatory reading for association professionals. It’s both a wake-up call and a guide for navigating the future. Discover the power of digital transformation and how it can move your association from business as usual to excellence.

Association 4.0 — An Entrepreneurial Approach to Risk, Courage, and Transformation

Entrepreneurs love solving the thorny problems that cause the rest of us to tear our hair out. They welcome disruption and use it to grow business.

This book includes interviews with twenty-four entrepreneurs who are risk-takers and transformers. They have the courage to push forward, even when the ground is shifting under their feet. Their stories are funny, motivational, sometimes a little sad and always inspiring. Above all, these interviews are filled with advice about how to navigate Association 4.0™—or the strategies leaders will need to embrace in an industrial revolution driven by technology.
