The concept of best practices is another one of those difficult to define but widely adopted phrases used to describe one of the evolutionary steps in the ongoing pursuit of silver bullet fixes to complex organizational problems.

If the management mentality is to mature, it is important to learn from the phases of evolution. A social, political, and economic dissection of best practices is a healthy step in overcoming the syndrome.
