We often try to patch up our older products. I say “patch up” because we aren’t willing to do a complete overhaul for whatever reason. Our “patch up” efforts can be as small as changing words or graphics in an online course or as big as expecting a low performing contractor to provide us award wining results.
Sometimes I think we need to leave some of the old stuff alone and just plain move on to a completely new approach, product, or person. Or, at least separate them so the glaring differences aren’t evident.
