Clearly, "save as" is the impulse that got us all in the situation where we are. We believed the system was infallible - we played the probabilities with excess risk. A mess of mathematical proportions where everyone in the system had a vested interest in keeping it going as is/was.
Whatever you think about it, whether you see it as the result of foolishness or that of greed, naïvete or calculated speculation, here it is. The question now then is what kind of risk do you want? Do you want to throw your arms up while you wait for a handout? Do you want to stay stuck in this moment and wait for it to pass? Cut your costs to the bone and chug along with a team increasingly burdened with more and more work and now on all the time with no time to think about the quality of the work?
Or, do you want to start paying attention to your team? Taking the time to think about the big picture and its implications to your business specifically. Taking into consideration the real content and value of what your business offers. Giving your team the support it needs to succeed in looking at things differently - yes, R&R is as important as R&D in this scenario. Relationships facilitate productivity and result in greater breakthroughs - connections formed between ideas and people (and not algorithms) hold more than promise, they hold results.
Your real job is change.
