None of the cells that make up your bones, skin and muscle as a kindergarten kid are still alive when you are an adult. They’ve done their job, died and been replaced by new cells.
The notion of “business as a living organism” got me thinking about how much things have changed in business since my own consultancy made the transition from start up to young adult.
The name and essence of the business is essentially unchanged since our doors opened when John Howard was in his first year as Prime Minister. But now none of the people in the Palin Communications team are the same, it’s in a different location and what we help clients achieve now is unrecognisable from back in the day. It’s the same organism but it’s composed of different cells.
