Does “wisdom” get in the way of innovation?
In the last two years, I’ve been having many conversations where the build vs. buy debate is the crux. Like many conversations, perhaps the challenge lies in a lack of nuance or discrepancy in definitions.
However, there is a clear relationship between tenure and perspective on this issue. Fewer years of experience will favor building over buying and vice versa for more tenured professionals.
Since I’ve been around the block a few times, I have some inherent bias regarding this topic.
