It’s not the strongest that survive, it’s the most adaptable

Covid-19 is changing the way we do things. People don’t like uncertainty but they are highly adaptable. Charles Darwin wrote that natural selection favours adaptability. It’s not the strongest that survives, it’s those that are most adaptable.

Covid-19 is changing our world. What might be seen as forced change is an opportunity to make permanent change, benefitting people and businesses, such as:

  • embracing flexibility and virtual teams,
  • realignment of the cost base,
  • reduction of floor space,
  • reduced travel and accommodation, and
  • new technology including remote-working and online-learning tools.

In some capacity, these new ways of working may well become a permanent fixture of the new norm.

Our CEO, Jody Rowe, said “When I started Rowe Advisory my thinking was that which I’d used for 30 years. However, we’ve developed into a flexible virtual organisation. We’ve clients in Perth and consultants in Brisbane, clients in Australia employing UK consultants and clients in America utilising Australian consultants. It’s incredible that my way of working changed so rapidly. It’s less about control and more about trust which heightens people’s performance”.

Our trusted C&P professionals are working remotely sourcing materials, managing contracts and developing strategies.
