About 25 years ago I walked into a new job as a programmer / analyst / AVP, and was tasked with rewriting an account manager inquiry system where users would look up their clients loans, securities and the like.  Original system providing the data was very hard to use, so these bankers wouldn't touch it.  A redo had already failed, because it had the exact same look and feel of the original system.  The manager wanted an identical redo - and I said NO.  I created a new terminal (VT100) based GUI simple enough for a child to use, and built the new inquiry system using taht GUI.  I prototyped the system, demo'd it, then built it, and the users accepted it.  Sounds simple, but I had to fight to get to do it in a way the users could handle.
