Lakotah tribal wisdom says that when you discover you are riding a dead horse, the best strategy is to dismount. However, in organizations such as government and business, other strategies are being tried, including: 1) Buying a larger whip. 2) Changing riders. 3) Saying things like, "This is the way we have always ridden this horse." 4) Appointing a committee to study the horse. 5) Arranging to visit other sites to see how they ride dead horses. 6) Creating a training session to improve riding skills. 7) Passing a resolution stating the horse is not dead. 8) Blaming the horse's parents. 9) Declaring that no horse is too dead to beat. 10) Providing additional funding to increase the horse's performance. 11) Harnessing several dead horses together to increase performance. 12) Conducting a study to see if private contractors can ride the dead horse cheaper. 13) Issuing a press release stating that the horse is "better, faster and cheaper" dead. 14) Forming a quality circle to find better uses for dead horses. 15) Revising performance goals for dead horses. 16) Insisting that this horse was procured with cost as an independent variable. 17) Promoting the horse to a supervisory position.
