The current economic climate has forced many individuals and organisations to re think and behave more entrepreneurially, it’s not business as usual and it wont be for a long time to come. Scarcity is the mother of innovation and when times become financially demanding the trigger for change must be pulled. In keeping with Darwin’s thinking “It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent, it is the one that is the most adaptable to change”. Change involves rewiring behaviours and embracing new business models and approaches. Reinvention and realignment of priorities has become the order of the day, however, this involves personal and organisational change and this is not easy to achieve. The starting point is to take time out and re think, sometimes you have to slow down to speed up. The old cliché, cant see the wood for the trees, is a powerful reminder for us all to rise above what we are doing and refresh our thinking.
Time to change?
