Tom, I appreciate that your comments are coming from someone who
actually has to make the decision to pay and how. From that

For me to point out "flaws" would be inappropriate. There will be
problems - not necessarily flaws - because its a human system. The
actual results will point to any "flaws". My only coaching in the

you be aware and deal with whatever comes up.

For me, the idea of organisational learning (and personal learning)
is that life will tell us what it wants. Each thing we do, then, is
an action that will generate its own information, its own learning,
and thus be an interim step rather than a (final) answer.

Good luck,
