      This.

      The same managers that unthinkingly turn Management Information metrics into targets for their staff will turn this into a 'computer says it so we must do it' chain of halfwit decisions.

      There's not a tool in the world that a fellow tool can't turn into a weapon for making self-inflicted wounds.

    Just ask your f***ing users. They wont lie, they'll tell you your process is shit and they've been saying it for years. SMEs are not thin on the ground, they're your employees.
