Dear Joy,

I hardly think your response is silly! I happen to think you are right on
target. I have problems with "best practices" models because there are so
many other variables that cannot be faithfully transplanted from one
organization to another, for example, organizational culture. A "best
practice" may work in one environment and fail miserably in another.
Also, how a practice is described on paper and how it is actually being
implemented can be very different. Like you, I think it is a matter of
picking and choosing the pieces that make sense in your own context. I
like to know about others' best practices, but I hardly ever try and adopt
them "as is."
