It seems you need to figure out how to demonstrate the value of what you are doing to upper management. One way to do this when you put out results and see that they are interested in those results, take the opportunity and tell them, "I could even do X if I have y and z" using example of a "problem" they didn't ask you to solve but know they would be interested in seeing a solution for. I can't imagine anyone working in such inefficient way in this day and edge.

Unfortunately inefficiency is par for course and even encouraged now.

The bureaucrats are winning and sadly no I've done the bolded countless times and it doesn't help. The only solution is to leave or just keep going like a zombie until they cut you loose for some reason which has nothing to do with you, and everything to do with their own ineptitude and rock headed nature.

You would think so wouldn't you. These folks just don't think that way. Decisions are a risk because they could be wrong. Long term and overall success isn't in their vision; instead it's about protecting their turf.
