It’s easy to think everything needs to have a technology component to it.
If something is broken there “must be an app” for that or there must be a tool for it.
My favorite example is when I left a job many years back and when I followed up with one of the developers they said – “we replaced you with a bunch of tools” – (pun intended and funny) – but it didn’t do what they want.
Not everything requires a software solution to make it work, but we’ve started defaulting to it because it’s easier to download something than to dig into what is really wrong.
