I would also point out that it is impossible as a salaried employee to convince most managers of anything without a personal relationship. They tend to view any sort of course change as a personal failure that will reflect badly on them so you are going to need that trust and political capital beforehand. This is especially true if you are new to the company. No one wants the new engineer to come in and quickly point out where things are going wrong.
