Have you noticed that even when you have a truly sensible solution to a problem that you can encounter resistance to change?
Why do some people resist making things better? Why wouldn't they want to solve that problem?
Most problems have someone or something invested in the status quo. It works for them. They're getting something out of it. Even when it's a problem for someone else -- until you identify the payoff to the status quo, solving it may prove to be difficult.
A great solution does more than solve the problem -- it does no harm.
