Working Wisdom: quote about business survival


Charles Darwin once said: “Intelligence is based on how efficient a species became at doing the things they need to survive.”

Charles Robert Darwin (born 12 February 1809, died 19 April 1882) was an English naturalist, geologist and biologist, best known for his contributions to the science of evolution and his book, On the Origin of Species, published in 1859. Since organizations can be compared to living organisms, his principles for nature are often applied in business. The underlying message continues to be highly applicable in supply chain management today: survival depends on the ability to adapt.
