Celebrate Balloon Fiesta's 50th Anniversary with SDA
Join us September 30 - October 1 for the SDA Membership & Board Meeting, in Albuquerque, NM during the 50th celebration of Balloon Fiesta. Let's take advantage of coming together for camaraderie, share solutions, learn something and have a little fun. Attendees will attend the balloon ascension on October 1.
The Disruption Cycle
Disruption is a fact of life in business; change continues to come at an unprecedented pace and there’s no sign of it abating. Growth expert Steve McKee has been wading in these waters for the past four years via his company’s groundbreaking research regarding the forces of disruption. In “The Disruption Cycle,” Steve will share with us key findings from his research, including the most common reasons why organizations get disrupted, early warning signs that indicate trouble may lay ahead, and—most importantly—best practice principles for how alert leaders can prepare for and cope with change. Prior to the meeting, members will be provided a survey link so Steve can share results at the meeting regarding our industry's response to change.
Nobody could have anticipated what was about to unfold at the beginning of 2020, and nobody really knows what lies around the corner. But whatever comes our way, it’s vital that our organizations be prepared—culturally and strategically—to succeed in the months and years ahead. There’s never been a more important time to understand the forces of disruption and how we can use them to our advantage. Don’t miss “The Disruption Cycle,” October 1 at the SDA Membership Meeting.
