Why best practices are hard to practice (and what can be done about it)
The two common pitfalls that organizations encounter when implementing best practices are:
1. Lack of adaptation: this refers to a situation in which best practices are applied without customizing them to an organization’s specific needs.
2. Lack or adoption: this to the tendency of best practice initiatives to fizzle out due to lack of adoption in the day-to-day work of an organization.
