    Riding a Dead Horse
    When you discover you are riding a dead horse, the best strategy is to dismount. In the federal government, however, it seems that they often try other strategies with dead horses, including the following:

    • Buying a stronger whip.
    • Changing riders.
    • Saying things like "This is the way we always have ridden this horse."
    • 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 riding ability.
    • Comparing the state of dead horses in today's environment.
    • Change the requirements declaring that "This horse is not dead."
    • Hire contractors to ride the dead horse.
    • Harnessing several dead horses together for increased speed.
    • Declaring that "No horse is too dead to beat."
    • Providing additional funding to increase the horse's performance.
    • Do a cost analysis study to see if contractors can ride it cheaper.
    • Purchase a product to make dead horses run faster.
    • Declare the horse is "better, faster and cheaper" dead.
    • Form a quality circle to find uses for dead horses.
    • Revisit the performance requirements for horses.
    • Say this horse was procured with cost as an independent variable.
    • Promote the dead horse to a supervisory position.
