Scott has some valid points....the top performers already know the
'tricks'. That's how they got to the top. They were using the round
wheels of their day. Over time, though, those wheels have become flat
but they insist on using the same wheels, instead of looking in the
wagon for new wheels and charing what's worked for them so well over
time. Meanwhile, the poorer and the new performers are trying the
'new wheels'.

Of course, if the top performers are in an LO, they are learning and
trying the 'new wheels' too!
