My experience over the years has found that people can almost always come up with a reason why automation doesn’t work for their business case.
This is also known as “because I’m special” logic.
What I want to do is propose a few ways to break through that barrier and get automation going for your organization.
Once you start, everyone will love it, you just have to get over that first hump.
What I propose you do is build for 95% of situations. I could say 99% which is closer to the truth, but then it sounds like the whole 99% of people thing which was cool for awhile. It also isn’t true for this case – it’s for 100% of people, just 95% of cases.
