it takes 2x to decontruct legacy + build new
Said for a long time (... deriving from a massive manufacturing Op's overhaul I participated in many years ago), that the obstacle the encumbent has (vs. a "cherry-picking" new venture), is the former has 2 jobs (vs. only 1 job for the newbie) - the encumbent not only has to build the new platform, but simultaneously decommision the old ... 2x the work. (Applies to new product intro, as well ... & likely various other domains.)
