Group Thinking and Precast Rituals

Every company is thinking in groups. One group typically has the same opinions, habits etc. After some time the members do things in a particular way.
Other methods and thinking that are not fitting in the "Group Thinking precast rituals" are not memorized by other members, even if in fact other companies in the same line of business do the same job in a different manner.
People say: "That is the way we do things around here. Do you understand?!"
The management role is to always keep or lead back the mind of the group members to the "beginners point of motivation". If you're one of them you know how hard this task is.
For example: an employee is changing company. Now his mind is in the beginners state. He's ready to accept any new method and thinking. But after some time, he falls in the same state as before.
Do you know of any method/way to keep or transfer back employees to this beginners motivation state?
What are your ideas?
