"Best Practices", i think, involves two of the 7Es (seven essentialities
of creativity -- spareness ("quantity-limit") and otherness ("quality-
variety"). If we do not grow continually in each of these 7Es, we will not

becomes increasingly complex.

differently but the organization cannot perceive them as a general rule.

And I stopped using the term Alan mentioned, "continuous improvement" in
favor of "continuous continuous improvement" to indicate that one cannot
complete a "continuous improvement project," contrary to what many
managers seem to imply.

BTW, the term comes from the department of redundancy department
