Prepare for the future by exploring—with board and staff—drivers of change likely to affect associations. Through the ongoing ASAE ForesightWorks initiative, futurists and executives have given you a head start on your strategic discussions and planning by scanning the environment for you and identifying 41 drivers of change with likely implications for associations.

The Complete Collection includes actions briefs for all 41 drivers of change, along with a User’s Guide. Each action brief is a four-page examination of a driver of change, including

  • description
  • forecasts
  • key uncertainties
  • supporting trends
  • notable data points
  • related drivers of change
  • strategic insights
  • timing
  • potential alternative futures
  • actionable ideas
  • key search terms
  • organizations most likely to be affected

The ASAE ForesightWorks User’s Guide works in concert with the action briefs and other resources to assist leaders in establishing foresight practices and processes. It explains the discipline of foresight, the methodology for the ASAE ForesightWorks program, and the most effective ways to use the action briefs. The User’s Guide also provides tools and other resources, such as facilitation tips, strategic questions, and a sample survey, to help you prioritize which drivers of change to tackle.

A license to share the action briefs with staff and volunteers within the purchaser’s single legal entity is included with the purchase.

Note: This product is a downloadable PDF file. After your purchase, you will be presented with the PDF for download. You will also be able to access the PDF for 60 days from the date of purchase in the “My Downloads” section of your profile on the ASAE website.
