English term or phrase: ‘stovepipe’ approach
At the end of the CPM MQ report, Gartner literally has
something they call the ‘Bottom Line’. Here is
Gartner’s Bottom Line: “When evaluating CPM
vendors, take a ‘suite’ approach, aiming to cover
multiple management processes. A ‘stovepipe’
approach may fix short-term problems, but will not
significantly affect performance. Products should be
evaluated on their overall integration and to what
extent it has solid foundation or fits into your BI or ERP
strategies.”

The View Through a Stovepipe
Why do some companies achieve long term-growth and success while their counterparts stagnate and plateau? There are many reasons but one stands tall among the rest. Here's a metaphor that might help explain:
Companies that fall behind tend to view their markets too narrowly. They're like an old dog meandering down a riverbank, and coming upon a rusty, narrow stovepipe lying in the ground. They sniff a bit, then look inside. What they can see through the other end is a leaf floating serenely down a river. It's a placid scene, a quiet, uncontentious one.
But if the old dog lifted its head, it would see a lot more: the river lapping against its banks, a treacherous waterfall up ahead, the stream itself dividing into a main branch and two stagnant backwater sub-streams.
Many companies, acting just like this old dog, are afflicted too with their own brand of "stovepipe vision." Though they seem to pay attention to and understand their markets, their context is narrow, limited, hemmed-in.

Может в кавычках написать \"дымоходный\" подход или подход \"дымохода\"? Хотя, конечно, звучит не очень
