Perhaps it gives them somewhere to hide away.


John, you may be more right than you think! :)

Over the years, sitting in "important" meetings like board meetings and such there were always some guy that had some psychological issue with decisions. When pressed they always went deeper and deeper into their "blanket" - aka Excel spreadsheet effectively postponing any decision and driving all others up the wall!

Sticking to something "complicated" (favourite term amongst decision avoiders), digging and digging and never taking a chance - the prerequisite of doing anything important - makes them feel safe.

Huge complicated ERP installs from huge brand name suppliers might be exactly that. The spreadsheet-blanket or toilet to hide away on... hehe.
