And don't forget that LCW grew up in the BAM system and achieved success, whatever shortcomings BAM might have.
It is asking too much from BAM to help someone outside the BAM system to achieve glory under a different banner and not the BAM banner. They have their own self interest to protect just as ZZ and his dad think they can do a better job outside of BAM.
BAM's main priority is to develop those players under its charge. In other words, preference will be given to the other national singles players to spar with LCW whenever possible.
If ZZ and company want to compete with BAM to see who can do a better job in the end, ZZ and co will have to find their own resources. Don't expect too much from your opponent to help you succeed at your opponent's expense.

There will always be a conflict of interest, for as long as BAM is responsible for training players under its banner. In an ideal world, independent private clubs with their own sponsor backing/funding would be competing with each other for places in the national squad. BAM would just be faciliating that process, or at most be responsbile for national team events like the Thomas/Sudirman cup and Olympics/WC. As the Super Series gains more and more prominence the responsibility of coaching and also participation in Super Series events should be devolved to the clubs and their sponsors. One needs BAM because living off from the proceeds of Super Series tournament money isn't a reality just yet.

Yes, when that day comes, BAM can then take on a different role as suggested.

Perhaps that's the Malaysian/Asian way of thinking.
Anyway, let's follow Zulfadli Zulkifli (under this way of thinking) and Viktor Axelsen (under the Denmark/Western way of thinking) to see how both of them will make their marks in the world in the next few years to come.

The state associations should identify their talent pool for various age-groups and the state team and be given adequate funding for their coaching, staffing and related expenses. State associations should submit their detailed action plans and a budget for their requirements and their progress should be closely monitored.
All state team players will then assemble at periodical intervals to compete for a place in the National Team for the various international tournaments that will involve Malaysia.
BAM will not have to develop a team, as currently, to avoid any conflict of interest. There should be transparency and representation is based solely on merit. Every state should be treated equally without fear or favour.

It was not always smooth sailing for LCW during his earlier exploits on the international scene. I remembered at one of the S'pore Opens he was knocked out early in the preliminaries.
From the many posts that I read in this BC forum, it would seem LCW never gave up. He continued to work very hard at training and finally made his mark not too long ago and remained consistent with his WR1 ranking. If the other MAS players want to achieve success, there is no short cut but to work hard. I also read that Lin Dan was a very hard-working player, often times remaining behind in training and perfecting his strokes when his team mates had left.
Malaysia has many badminton talents. Take Darien Liew for example. He has beaten some of the higest ranked players in the world, yet he remained complacent with his current position and not shown prospects of replacing LCW when the latter retires.
When BAM insisted on higher standards in training and greater achievement from the national squad, there was hue and cry and BAM was accused of setting unrealistic targets. BAM was crucified in this forum so many times for not doing a good job, but when they tried, they were similarly condemned. And here you have ZZ and co. trying to do better than BAM.
I'm an outsider not affliated in any way with BAM. But I don't see how MAS can succeed in the badminton world with so much disunity and confrontation that is currently taking place.
