Discussion on: On the Occasional Misdiagnosis of "Not Invented Here Syndrome"

My personal philosophy is to look at the business value. Does reinventing the wheel provide better value for our customers and is more important than what we could be doing otherwise?

I generally like to use external resources until they begin to cause problems. Only then do I think about investing something to replace them. This way I make sure not to invent the wrong thing at the wrong time.
