At the risk of sending the thread off topic, I have agree with the above.
Example. A couple of years ago I was preparing for a task with a small-team thrown together with guys from two nations. On arrival it dawned that Nation 1 were the talent and Nation 2 were the labour. First day on the range they flipped out at our technique and mission training was put on hold for several days while were first had to re-learn to do basic things their way. Shredded targets, not to mention decades of experience, meant nothing because "you're holding the weapon all wrong".
Sucked it up as dutiful subordinates should in the interests of achieving the end goal (and team harmony) but it was annoyingly counterproductive.
Process driven vs results driven

For the record I'm a two eyes open guy. It used to be by choice but now it's compulsory due to contact lense old-guy issues
