Simple....." They don't hire you for the sake of it,they hire you so that you can make Profit(fullfilling your KRA's) to them.
You want to be the fittest : When you give them more than the Profit expected from you !
Here the meaning of Profit is :
For HR - Recruit the best who gives best ROI to the company.
For Sales - Sales on Traget or one who earns max incentives by Sales.
For Marketing - Getting the best Market Share
For Operations - ZERO error in work
For HOD - Manganing the above as one unit.
For CEO - Making all above understand the Vision and mission of company and give new business models and best turnover.
The Survival of fittest is different for different unit and work. :)

For that, understand yourself, I mean, your weaknesses, strengths, have all emotions (without emotions, you will merely a log), admit your mistakes, have your own opinions (of course no imitations).....stand on earth (be humble)......don't fly in the air (no headweight).....stay with your collegues....support/help your subordinates.......be a good friend (a friend in need is a friend indeed)...acquire all human values......as Socretes said, spend half an hour a day for thinking and planning your future course....definitely you will be successful.

it's a matter of playing the given role as per the customer requirments,
but there will be uncertainity for always , so far no one can think all matters as survival fittest- second it's survival policy will not good enough for the humanity,
if it's there no gandhian will not be killed, earlier it's understood, such policy anywhere will not workable.

Friends, some of you have really quoted good skills to survive in this corporate world like Communication, EQ, People skills, etc. I also think that this skills are required to survive but what I feel is that if you are presentable i.e. you have a good command over your and a good body language then your 90% task is done as you will not fall back on your attitude front.

But question is how to do this? What are the essentials to do it? What are the secrets? What is wrong and what is right? Actually the answer to all above questions is that there is no answer.
So far what I have observed that itís not only hard skills on the job which makes a successful career itís actually a smart combination of soft skills too. Now when we say soft skills it can be smart time management, infectious enthusiasm, graceful attitude, strong language hold, nice corporate finesse, powerful dressing, and etc. these all skills can be tested right from one client lunch too board room meetings. People with these all attributes with sound knowledge of their work can only survive in corporate or they will make others stay comfortable whom they want to stay...after all itís a cut throat competition out there..:lol:
