However, it is very easy to make things slower, worse, and more expensive
through really boneheaded management. "faster, better, cheaper: pick any
two" is *usually*, the case, but sometimes not given certain government oversight systems and "stretching"
military procurement. Of course, people who use the phrase "faster,
better, cheaper" usually aren't willing to make the real reforms necessary
to make it possible.
