» What speaks against a pilot study?

Unfortunately, it's not a common practice in our country (Belarus). If not a pilot study what are other options? Sequential (if yes, how to implement it)? The usual 2X2 design with arbitrary, say a bit more than 30 subjects, sample size? Any other reasonable approaches?

I believe there is no philosophical high-road in science,
with epistemological signposts. No, we are in a jungle
and find our way by trial and error,
building our road behind us as we proceed.    Max Born
