Abstract

How does the process of social change affect or threaten firms? This question and the many issues related to it remain fertile areas of debate amongst academic scholars. This paper seeks to add to this debate through consideration of an undergraduate cohort at the University of Tasmania. In doing so, it will be argued that within the context of enterprise education, such a cohort is a representative system to the more general process of social change occurring within larger systems. It will be further argued that we can move the debate forward through suspending concern for the context of the social system undergoing change, and increasing our focus upon the elements of interaction and the processes of replication that exist irrespective of any differing contextual setting. In doing so, this paper aims to promote the virtues of awareness and reflection as critical and essential adaptive properties through which survival is greatly influenced.
