You're correct. That is precisely what I should have written. At least one other person (Greg Goodknight) seems to find Wayne Bishop's writing easily readable. I am the only person who has expressed reservations about reading (and understanding) Wayne Bishop's writing.

No. It would not. I have grave 'other' reservations about Wayne Bishop, which prevent me from applying OPMS effectively to his writing.

There has been no "dodging" of any question raised (see above and below as well as the responses made to your questions when you raised them).

As you would have realized, if you had ever troubled yourself to read anything about OPMS before persistently and consistently lying about it over a period of years:

OPMS is a general problem solving approach, which definitely can help almost anyone effectively identify problems and issues and tackle the issues identified. However, there is one proviso as the above "almost" indicates: The problem solver (the 'stakeholder') has to be minimally honest about his/ her/ their underlying motivations. Without this, OPMS cannot work.

This is entirely untrue, as you'd realize if you'd had the minimal honesty required of any stakeholder desiring to apply OPMS to issues. As you appear to lack that fundamental requirement, I should not expect you to realize this.
