It's possible to generate commitment, though, and in my experience
often much easier to generate commitment to the next small experiment
than to a revolutionary overhaul.
That's not to say that I'm against revolutionary overhauls. I'd like
to be part of one at some point. I just don't see them happen very
often. And still, I do see change.
