In my case, I just want to make sure folks are approaching these
sorts of decisions by first identifying problems and only *then*
moving to discussing solutions. Otherwise there's a risk that a lot
of effort and resources are wasted on work which doesn't solve
whatever needs solving. Hear each of the arguments (for and against)
with a critical ear, and ask whether they're good solutions for the
problems you've identified.

Above all, try to avoid the trap of using problems to justify a
solution which has already been chosen for other reasons. When the
discussion starts out as a proposal for some particular solution,
that's how it tends to come across.
