We have commented before that our industry needs fewer stories/case studies and more research, evidence and data.
Surely the author would insist on testing of any “step-by-step” prescriptions. In fact, there is no way to know if what one advisor firm did, in the past at a specific location can be generalized to current conditions in different cites, markets and firms.
