This post does a very good job in explaining the "bright side" of 'Not Invented Here'. In my work, I seem more often what I call the 'dark side' - New leaders joining a company and not spending any time learning what has been done, what is working, what is not working, and what was tried before but failed. They come in and feel compelled to make their mark quickly (First 90 days). I see this happen in lower ranks of supervisors, managers, and directors too. Do you know what I'm talking about? Has anyone else experienced this? I'm dealing with it right now in fact.

So good. I love the "Toothbrush Theory". I had not heard that before.

"Proudly found Elsewhere" shall be a newly adopted mantra. (& i didn't even think of it myself!).
