They are not Willing To Change. This sounds like an AntiPattern. Possibly related to If It Is Working Dont Change, but without the conditional. ;-)
They could be afraid of change in general, or it could be that they don't trust you because you're not One of Them — you're outside their Community of Trust — and thus anything you do is Not Invented Here and a scary mystery.

Perhaps they are gambling on being able to use you as a ScapeGoat, but to do so requires that you not actually fix the problem, so they make sure you don't.

Reminiscent of heavy wizardry... but with deeper magic.

Between the mind which plans and the hands which build, there must be a mediator... and this mediator must be the heart.
