Dakota Indian tribal wisdom says:
When you discover you are riding a dead horse,
the best strategy is to dismount.
However, in modern organizations,
We often try other strategies with colloquial dead horses.
Some I’ve seen tried recently, how about your group?
* Buying a stronger whip.
* Changing riders.
* Saying things like “This is the way we always have ridden horses.”
* Appointing a committee to study the horse.
* Arranging to visit other sites:
To see how they ride dead horses.
* Increasing the standards to ride dead horses.
* Appointing a tiger team to revive the dead horse.
* Creating a training session to increase our ability at riding dead horses.
* Comparing the state of dead horses in today’s environment.
* Passing a resolution declaring “This horse is NOT dead.”
* Blaming the horses’ancestry.
* Harnessing several dead horses for increased speed.
* Declaring that “No horse is too dead to beat.”
* Provide additional funding to increase the horse’s performance.
* Do a study to see if contractors can ride it cheaper.
* Declare that “Horses are better, faster and cheaper when dead.”
* Form a committee to find uses for dead horses.
* Revisit the performance requirements for horses to include dead horses.
* Promote the dead horse to a supervisory position.
