“Never change a winning formula” - isn’t that what we were always told?
As far as my Mum’s lasagne is concerned that might be true - although I hear all of the shouts about “Red meat is bad for you! Don’t eat the cheese! Animals products - baaad!” - so maybe even that isn’t included.

And in the world we live in that change is getting faster and faster.
We’ve taken a look back at the last 20 years to have a look at some industries that had clear leaders (NY Taxi, Kodak, Blockbusters and Borders), way ahead of the pack.
