The trouble is, nothing is learned from such an exercise, and future problems receive the same treatment. Patience and good will are necessary in this communication and education process; big "black box" mOdels are not. The practice common to many policy makers of assigning one of his staff to monitor the study once a contract is approved can also lead to irrelevance and thus present a pitfall to the analyst. The staff monitor may be competent technically but he cannot pass on what the policymaker really has to have to satisfy the needs, interests, and goals of his constituency and what motivates his personal and political life.
