  1. The tribal wisdom of the Dakota Indians, passed down from generation
    to generation, says that when you discover that you are riding a dead
    horse, the best strategy is to immediately dismount.

    In the Public Service, however, a whole range of far more advanced
    strategies are often employed, such as:

    1. Change riders.

    2. Buy a stronger whip.

    3. Do nothing: "This is the way we have always ridden dead horses."

    4. Visit other countries to see how they ride dead horses.

    5. Perform a productivity study to see if lighter riders improve the
    dead horse's performance.

    6. Hire a contractor to ride the dead horse.

    7. Harness several dead horses together in an attempt to increase the

    8. Provide additional funding and/or training to increase the dead
    horse's performance.

    9. Appoint a committee to study the horse and assess how dead it
    actually is.

    10. Re-classify the dead horse as "living-impaired".

    11. Develop a Strategic Plan for the management of dead horses.
    Intensely workshop this plan.

    12. Rewrite the expected performance requirements for all dead horses.

    13. Modify existing standards to include dead horses.

    14. Declare that, as the dead horse does not have to be fed, it is
    less costly, carries lower overheads, and therefore contributes
    substantially more to the bottom line than many other horses.

    15. Promote the dead horse to a supervisory position.

    16. Pretend the horse is alive and accept a nil response as legitimate
    when asking for comments.
  2. The Dakota strategy follows KISS, but the other does seem to have all bases covered. :wink:
