Sometimes it's easy to see assets being neglected. The trucks parked out back that are rusting and won't start. The coffee machine that seems to be broken more often than it works. The printers sitting without use for months. But it's harder to see assets like software being neglected.
It's a common scenario – a particular piece of software isn't working correctly and you have to make a decision. Should you defer the investment and take on the pain of the software not working? Or should you move on? It's a tough choice but it's one that all managers will have to make at some point.
