Churches that are serious about being strategic and effective should consider evaluating their programs and processes on a quarterly bases. You may be familiar with the street light exercise using red, yellow and green dots. Making a list of your programs and processes by department, ask your team, "what should we keep doing, what should we reevaluate, and what should we stop?" You'd be amazed at how insightful this simple activity can be.
This is a great reflection by Todd Rhoades.

Dot matrix printers4. PDA’s5. Pay phones6. VHS and cassette tapes7. Landline phones8. CRT televisions9. Film cameras10. Windows 98 and 200011. Fax machines12. Vinyl records
I’m wondering… what ‘obsolete’ things is your church holding on to?You know… things that people still use because they’re used to it, or will resort to it in a pinch… but really aren’t necessary anymore
