I agree with your comments. Personally I still very much agree with the principles of a BICC to implement a BI strategy - but it's all part of a natural progression and you have to be able to walk before you can run (i.e. you need to initially demonstrate value).

And don't get me started on personalities and politics!

But like I said, I still believe a BICC is the best method of implementation.
