Mudar custa mesmo muito

"But businesses, like families, develop customs and norms that are completely absurd to outsiders. Sometimes, of course, such customs are appropriate and well-suited to their specific business. But often they’ve simply evolved to become ordinary course of business, even though they’re destructive and inefficient. Sometimes, even certain insiders see the destructiveness and inefficiency but are afraid to say so because they’re uncertain how the person/people in charge will react.
A fresh set of eyes can see (and say!) things that insiders cannot. If business leaders are receptive, they might just be treated to eye-opening insights by consultants that can lead to monumental shifts in business performance. If not, they might remain mired in their inefficient ways of doing things."(1)
E conjugar com:
""If this wasn’t the best way of doing things, I’m sure it would have disappeared by now," is a logical fallacy and an unfortunately common refrain.
The other part of the problem is that best practices are a misnomer. Often what we call best practices were at one point good or smart business moves, but we seldom do the work to determine how long they stay the "best" or whether they're universally applicable."(2)
