New interventions may not be better than (old) available alternatives
People often assume that new management interventions, techniques or models are better simply because they are new, ‘modern’, or innovative.
However, on average, they are not likely to be more effective than ‘old’ interventions, techniques or models. Some negative side-effects, for example, take time to appear and it may not be possible to know whether they will appear without long term follow-up.
Claims that an intervention is effective just because it is new, modern, or innovative are likely to be wrong.
