If you work for a company that uses the catch phrase Best Practices keep in mind there is no such thing as a "Best Practices" only Better Practices. Using Best Practices lead to complacency, implementing Better Practices leads to improvement. If you believe in continuous improvement, Better Practices are rungs on a never ending quality improvement ladder. Better Practices need a test period to determine their success. Better Practices are constantly being evaluated to determine if a Better Practice is waiting in the wings.
