Roadmap to Reinvention: Innovation to Drive Success—and Revenue
A guide to measure and grow your association’s business-innovation capacity

Advancing Business-Venture Innovation is a five-part resource that includes an overview of the research results, reports covering each of the eight capacity areas, and considerations and resources for charting change pathways. At the heart of the resources is a readiness assessment based on a maturity model validated by the research and originated by principal researcher Association Ventures. Applying the tool, association leaders can self-assess readiness against eight relevant business-venture-innovation capacities, or domains—including catalytic leadership and diverse talent—and compare themselves to peers represented in the study and best-practice references.
