Christian,

I also can not stand “We’ve always done it that way” as why we are doing “it” a certain way. Maybe there are new techniques and technology that have come along and there is a better way to skin the cat. Then, I wonder maybe the reason we have done it the way we did was because we have tried all kinds of other ways and they simply don’t work. Sometimes tried and true was made due to mistakes, sometimes in blood, already paid. It is definitely a dichotomy that needs to be looked at closely when making decisions that effect a group of people. Taking ownership is a whole issue in and of itself. I believe someone wrote a couple of books on ownership and dichotomy of leadership and probably makes a lot of money off these ideas!
