The jawbone of an ass is just as dangerous a weapon today as in Sampson's time.
--- Richard Nixon
When we encounter bad management and then construct an alternative to correct, without first assessing how to stop the bad management so we can find the real problem preventing a good outcome, it's called argument by false analogy.
I've seen bad management produce bad outcomes, so my approach to that bad management will produce good results.
This is a common approach in the replacement of bad project management by alternative management processes.
The managers of our firm so badly apply the PMI principles to our projects, that we need to switch to agile software development to fix our projects.
A similar approach is:
Our managers have applied management practices so poorly, we need to abandon the known principles and replace them with new and likely untested outside of personal anecdotal experience.
In the debate and forensics domain, this is called false analogy. This is seen many times, when the basis of the argument starts with anecdotal experience - it worked for me and a few of my friends, so it'll work for you.
