A friend of mine with a health problem went to a doctor.
The doctor concluded that a surgery is needed to solve the problem.
The doctor described a couple of different methods of how to perform the required surgery.
One of the methods was well known and proven to work in most cases, but the doctor hesitated to go with it. He then complained to my friend that he was using this method for the last 15 years, he’s so bored of using it and wants to try something new, fresh and cool.
The doctor told my friend about the conference that he visited last month where everyone was talking about this new elegant way to do the same surgery that my friend needed. The method was invented only a couple of years ago, but the community of surgeons was buzzing with the excitement, and so was my friend's doctor, who decided to give the new method a go.
Except that my friend decided to go to a different doctor.
How is this situation even possible in real life?
It’s not. Thankfully, this is not a real-life story.
But replace a friend of mine with a business that you know and the doctor with a software developer - and you’ve got a real-life story.
