I guess the premise needs to be someone above barely competent.
We'll agree that your method works for fire control. Projects should NOT BE fire control in most cases. Sadly, many are. While I like to be the Ross Adair of systems malfunctions, I'll also take a less stressful life. At the end of fire control, there are often a pile of ashes. It's possible to lead a long and successful life, and not deal with but a small pile of ashes. Others seem to need them for daily lunch.
