looking for a name for a process pattern:

if something has been significantly neglected (overgrown / too much tech debt / etc.), trying to fix things in a single pass will be destructive, and is effectively starting from scratch, while multiple passes, each having a very specific scope and goal, can get a better result, faster, without a full reimplementation

if there's no name, I suggest calling it the hairdresser pattern
