1) The Cautionary Approach
Regard any suggested improvements in efficiency with properly aggressive caution by identifying all possible pitfalls including forces of nature, unknown/unspecified future events, and especially politics.
2) The Procedural Plan Approach
Begin all projects that somehow get past the Cautionary Approach with a firm commitment to only complete portions that meet the most rigorous standards, enlightening all who follow with “textbook” procedural ethic.
3) The Grudging Implementation Approach
By being forced by others to actually try something new, you are exempted from the rigorous standards in procedures expectation, all rigor duly applied proving why the Cautionary Approach was right after all.
