Organisations are dynamic entities that need to respond to changes in their industry,
the regulatory environment, the technologies they either deliver or utilise, and their
relationships with suppliers and customers in achieving their strategic objectives.

A BLOODIED and bruised Australian
Services Rugby-Women (ASRU-W)
team saved the best till last when it
competed against the best players in the
country in the 2013 National Women's
Rugby Championship in Sydney from
September 25 to 28.
The Warriors lost their first three
matches against some of the country's
best players but beat South Australia
17-7 in a game with a sideline that
resembled a hospital ward.
Eight ASRU-W players finished the
game with fractures and bruises and
coach WO1 Jo Downes commended the
"It was an outstanding and coura-
geous effort on the back of three very
hard games against bigger and better
teams," WO1 Downes said.
Seven Air Force players were part
of the team -- run-on players CPL
Brooke Saunders, CPL Rebekah Allen
who was team captain, LACW Lucinda
Tomlinson and OFFCDT Rachel
Crothers, and reserves FLTLT Margie
Quinn, PLTOFF Liz von Finster and
LACW Lorna Hill.
NO. 15 Rachel Crothers was the
first to surpass the opposition and score
ASRU-W's first try.
CPL Allen dislocated an elbow in the
first half against Queensland and missed
the last game.
CPL Saunders, who had played at
No. 15 in previous years, won the team's
best forward trophy.
WO1 Downes said the championship
was a big step up for the team.
"But we have a young team and they
will benefit from the experience," she
said.WO1 Downes said strong perfor-
mances by several ASRU-W players had
them in contention for selection in the
Australian women's team.
The national team will be named
later this month.
The scores in ASRU-W's first three
games were 22-11 to NSW Country,
27-5 to Western Australia and 19-7 to
TWELVE Air Force personnel are part of
Defence Hockey Association (ADHA) men's
and women's teams which will play in a three-
Test series against their British counterparts in
They were among a party of 46 ADF men
and women who left Sydney on September 30.
The tests against United Kingdom Combined
Service Hockey are scheduled for October 14,
15 and 17, before which the ADHA teams will
play a game against each single service.
Between the single service games and the
test series, the ADF party will also do a three-
day battlefield tour of the Western Front in
The squad will attend an evening ceremony
at the Menin Gate, Ypres, where players will lay
a wreath and one member will read the Ode.
ADHA hosted the RAF in 2010 and the RN
in 2011, with the ADF men and women winning
both series. But team manager CPO William
McConnell thinks this will be more challenging.
"This will be a lot tougher on their home
soil," CPO McConnell said.
The teams were selected after the ADF com-
bined services championships in Sydney in
May and competed in the Australian Country
Championships in August. A number of shadow
players and staff have replaced personnel who
became unavailable due to service needs.
The team includes some bright up-and-com-
ers, including OFFCDT Nicholas Hill, who was
selected in the Australian Country men's under-
The Air Force representatives are:
Men's team: LAC Warwick Smith, LAC Chris Fazel, LAC
Ryan Grocott, OFFCDT Nicholas Hill, LAC Andrew Nash and
LAC Michael Anderson.
Women's team: FLTLT Leigh Molloy, WOFF Lara McAulifee,
LAC Megan MacAuslan, LACW Tara Woodward, FLGOFF
Alana Armstrong and FLTLT Lee Carruthers.
AIR Force lawn bowls is well placed
to wrestle the trophy from Navy when
Australian Services Bowls Association
stages the national service champion-
ship in Brisbane this month.
Air Force bowlers were in fine touch
when an ADF team tangled with some
of the world's best players during the
just-finished NSW Champions League.
The team, ADF Thunder, won two of
its nine matches and gained enormous
experience and exposure for ADF lawn
Leading for ADF Thunder was
FSGT Shaun Keitel.
The service championship will be
held at Swifts Bowls Club, Booval,
from October 14 to 18.
Air Force's last service title win was
in 2010 and the team goes to Brisbane
with an arguably stronger line-up.
UK Tests for
"Over the past few years, several
topline bowlers have been absent due
to work commitments, and the return of
these players will strengthen our team,"
FSGT Keitel said.
"If we get a little bit of luck, we may
be able to sneak another victory."
Air Force team manager SQNLDR
Ian Lane is confident, too.
"We'll go very close," he said.
"We are always competitive and
never give up."
