You need lots and lots of clerks making up rulez, with more PHBs making up procedures based on misreading libraries of good practice so nothing ever happens without great effort and extreme persistence. Sometimes it might by the right thing.
Never ask your IT staff anything. Keep them untrained and stymied by processes at all costs. (literally) Create lots of little empires and ensure the tech staff are siloed into them so they can't get an overall view of the business requirements to make informed assessments.
Bonuses all round the executive suite for keeping costs down. The outcome is that whatever bad happens is never managements fault, so all good. Easy to sack some wannabee BOFH. If it is a real stuff up,even better, not PHBs fault. Look at the rules put in place so sack the IT staffer. And no, I do not refer to this mornings little incident. Humans do make mistakes. One has to live with it.
