When a concept becomes a template...

Once upon a time there was a concept. It was a nice, happy concept, clear and useful to those around him. Then concept grew larger and more people learned about him, he was trying to make them all happy, but that was tough... And then one day the concept looked in the mirror and saw a template...
A lot of meaningful concepts share the story. One of them would be a concept of the business plan - initialy the idea was to explore the terrain ahead for the new business itself, and then it became a sales tool, or an item on "that's-what-you-need-to-tick-off-when-you-start-a-business " laundry list.
Victims of templatization are many and I am intending to ponder on it further, but just wanted to start a discussion, hear your thoughts and examples. Jump in!
