Howard E. Michel 2011 IEEE Vice President Member & Geographic Activities Original presentation created by Barry L. Shoop 2010 IEEE Vice President Member & Geographic Activities Contributors: Cecelia Jankowski, Jamie Moesch, Kuangyunn Chiu. Nuts and Bolts of Local Operations Engaging the Member
Purpose Engage in a dialog about how to more effectively engage the members. ‒ Volunteer-to-member ‒ Member-to-member ‒ Member-to-IEEE Workshop is intended to be a full-duplex communication process. Will not provide all the answers but instead motivate and stimulate ideas and share best practices already in use. 2
MGA Mission & Vision Vision: Ensure Quality Member Opportunities Through Continuous Engagement Mission: I nspire, E nable, E mpower and E ngage Members of IEEE For the purpose of… - Fulfilling the mission of IEEE - Enhancing the member’s growth and development through their life cycle - Providing a professional home Principles The member is IEEE and IEEE is the member. Members shape IEEE's future. Members collaborate to create IEEE's future. IEEE enhances members' future. Goals Increase member engagement. Improve relationships with and between members. Increase operational efficiency and effectiveness. Enhance collaboration with other business units. Increase membership. 6-Sep-14 3
Continuity—delivering value in 2011 Solidify the Membership Message Membership growth—400K+ (for reference) –Center for Leadership Excellence –vTools
The Member Message Focus on the Member, the Result will be Membership Growth 5
Engaging the Member Previous Model Goal: More meetings during the year. Process: Program Committee schedules more meetings. Result: More meetings with the same attendees. New Model … Changed Paradigm Goal: Meetings that better engage our members. Process: –Engage the member. Survey the members or use existing member segmentation data –Use member data to identify topics of common interest within the member life-cycle. Technical interests Student, Graduate Student, GOLD, Member, Senior Member, Fellow, Life Member Meeting model – traditional, virtual … webinar, Dim-Dim, … Result: More meetings with increased member engagement. Meetings are focused on member interest. 7
% Importance (Mean= 39) % Satisfaction (Mean = 41) More critical strengths Less critical strength Lower priority improvements Top improvement opportunity Satisfaction = Top 3 Box % Quality of the Member Experience Source: 2008 Member Segmentation Study, all Higher Grade Members 8
Membership Value Satisfaction Top 3 Box % % Awareness (Mean= 89) % Satisfaction (Mean= 41) Source: 2008 Member Segmentation Study, all Higher Grade Members 9 Satisfaction by Awareness - Higher Grade Members
Observations: Because 70% of sample data was from R1-7, the results of satisfaction and importance from R1-7 are very much in line with total. R8’s importance ratings in general were similar to R1-7 except “Representation on public policy issues” which showed less important. Compared with other regions “Online career resources” showed a lower importance rating in R10. With further analysis on the country level, India (72%) showed a great level of importance on product. Conclusions: Though “Online career resources” ranked lower in R10, 72% of members from India considered it very important vs China* (30%), Japan (31%), and Australia(26%). Noticeably, 74% of members in India expressed that it was very important to address “Representation on pub policy issues”. It was 55% and 30% in China and Japan respectively. “Discounts” was rated the most important product in China (91%) vs India (75%) and Japan (65%) Though the importance of “Representation on public policy issues “ might be higher in (R1-7,10) and lower in (R8), the return of investment could be difficult. * Very small N Importance Ranking
Observations: The high importance does not correspond to high satisfaction. Only 4 out of 10 most important products were among the top satisfaction list. Even though “Insurance and other financial products and services” received low rating in R8 (19%) and R10 (21% ) the gaps between satisfaction and importance are still positive.(See next page) This implies that the improvement of satisfaction in this area and others with positive gap would only make limited impact on member value. Conclusions: Maintain satisfaction on the products and services with high satisfaction. Members are satisfied and we deliver them well. With limited resources (financial, staff, and volunteer) we need to prioritize by focusing on the important products and services (see prior importance ranking page). They are important and our delivery is relatively weak. It is imperative to analyze the gap between satisfaction and importance. This provides great insights in taking properly actions. (See next page) Satisfaction Ranking
Observations: The table represents the gap between satisfaction and importance. Efforts narrowing the gaps in the products and services with high importance and low satisfaction are more likely to have the most impact on member value. Conclusions: The ratings of importance and satisfaction may be different from region to region, yet the gaps of top 10 products seems to be more consistent throughout the regions. “Discounts on professional products and services” was ranked #1 and #9 to R10 and R8 respectively. It showed that members in R10 are more sensitive to the pricing of the products and services in general. To compare with other regions, R10 has lower gap ranking in “Online career resources” with exception of India with (-54%), the highest gap area in India. Gap Ranking
Summary Based on gaps between importance and satisfaction of products and services – Discounts on professional products and services Higher priority : R10 (India and China) Lower priority: R1-8 –Professional networking Higher priority : R8 (United Kingdom, Greece and Netherlands) Lower priority : R10 (except India) –Online career resources Higher priority : R1-8 Lower priority : R10 (except India) –Continuing education opportunities Higher priority : All regions –Online access to publications Higher priority : All regions
