Effectiveness or Best Practises - make your pick!

Michael W. McLaughlin summarizes Best Practises (via eLearningPost):
  1. They rarely work
  2. It's a follower's strategy
  3. Change comes from within
  4. They don't come with a manual

One of the Lotus egg heads once added: "Best Practices are yesterday's technology".
The MIT recommends to replace them with Signature Processes.

I would add my own little attribute list:
  • they are an attempt to contain fear
  • they stifle innovation
  • they won't provide a safety net
  • they can't replace skills
