A checklist for institutional reform

This post on how to manage water (from defining resources to management of rights, etc.) inspired me to write this general checklist:
  1. Identify who does what
  2. Determine starting point (and preconditions)
  3. Choose goal or direction
  4. Diagnose structure connecting (2) and (3) from perspective of (1)
  5. Choose routes/tools to get to (3) that respects (or bribes) the people in (1)
  6. Run a pilot to see if (5) works
  7. Evaluate, revise and repeat
I know that this is generalized, but please comment on incorrect, missing, or out-of-order steps.

Bottom Line: Change will come if you can find a way to persuade those with veto power to accept it.
