Where foresight is 20/20
“It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is most adaptable to change.”
These words are often attributed to Charles Darwin, and while they draw from his ideas, they actually were first said by Leon C. Megginson, a professor of business management at Louisiana State University, in a speech delivered in 1963.
In truth, the aspiration for enterprises to become instinctive has been deeply ingrained in the art of business for generations. However, it is only recently – with artificial intelligence (AI) now poised to fundamentally redraw the business landscape – that companies are beginning to truly realize their potential and evolve into instinctive enterprises, able to predict and adapt in real time, to anticipate and ultimately exceed the needs of their customers.
Just as the fittest creatures rely on instinct to thrive, so will the next generation of advanced businesses.
