Start from scratch or not?[^]
Around two years ago I posted this and the approach I took was keep using the existing software , maintain/remove bug as need arises and in paralalel looking at feasibilty for designing from scratch with maximum reusability.
After due diligence and 1 year later, I presented my findings. Manager and above decided the cost is too much and don't see ROI .
Fast Forward 1 year and new manager comes in. He going through the shelved projects mentions for the Redesign.

Catch is that he is adding too many features and the old software requirement is just now a small part of his new vision how this software should like. Question is will this manager stay long enough to see this through?

So instead of redesigning a new blender , end up designing a new kitchen where new blender will be in the corner.
cheers,
Super
