Used as a management speak put down for those who resist change and hark back to the good old days. After a novel of the same name by S.E.Hinton (later film starring Emilio Estevez)
Employee - "I don't see why we should do it that way, we never used to"

Manager (with obvious irritation and finality) - "I don't care, that was then...this is now!"
