Isn't that the way it (almost always) is?

Many companies-especially big, lumbering ones- when faced with a business model that isn't working, just double down on what they've always done.

Sadly, it's all they know and are completely lost when it comes to even beginning the process of re-inventing themselves.

Ten years ago I worked for a while with an optical engineer who had left Kodak. Back then he said it was just like you described. The "film mafia" ran everything. All the bright young engineers saw what was coming, but only meager resources were allowed for digital. He was pretty bitter about it all.
