What is the state of your union?

The President makes an annual address.

Publicly traded companies release quarterly earnings.

Sports teams compile stats for every game.

There was a time when most companies and associations produced annual reports. That seems to have diminished over the years.  But has our need to track progress?  Has interest in the health of our organizations?  Has the value of weaving together isolated facts into a coherent narrative about a company, an association, a profession, or an industry?

I don't think so.

So what is the state of your union?  And more importantly, how is it being communicated to those who need to know?
