“What’s new?” (or: Learning from the old can be useful)

It’s a simple point, but it’s worth noting:

It took decades to figure out the basic principles of business strategy, and now that we have figured them out, we should not be valuing them any less because they have been clear to us for 30 years or more.

A sentiment that would do well to be applied to public service reform. (See also my frustrations with “innovation”.)
