Association advantages

Here's a post I found over at PicoBusiness. This article collects a series of posts from Scott Maxwell on how to win in the big company versus the little company battle. Although these tips are aimed at small business, they are 100% applicable to associations and small nonprofits if we will just take notice! One point that's made is that it's important to leverage your time advantage in a small operation. From some of the nonprofits I've worked in, many people seem very hesitant to use that advantage and instead they take shelter in a more bureaucratic model--seems dangerous to me.
