Adapt or Die
Dinosaurs are an apt and widely used metaphor today. After all, if a firm can't or won't adapt, it's straight to the dustbin of business oblivion. A business enterprise is not totally dissimilar from a dinosaur, ignore rapidly changing circumstances, and a leader authors his or her company's demise. Adapt to rapid changes better than your competitors and you'll make great strides. Outlining suggestions that will help managers adapt to today's volatile, fast-paced environment, the author quotes no less a change authority than Charles Darwin to illustrate what the real imperative is for a business leader today. "It is not the strongest species that survive, nor the most intelligent, but the ones most responsive to change."
