Is my team regularly adopting somewhat vacuous approach? (6)


I believe the answer is:


'approach?' is the definition.

'is my team regularly adopting somewhat vacuous' is the wordplay.
'regularly' indicates alternate letters (regularly take one letter, leave next etc.).
'adopting' is an insertion indicator (inserted letters are taken on or adopted).
'vacuous' means to remove the middle letters.
'somewhat' with its middle removed is 'st'.
The alternate letters of 'ismyteam' are 'syem'.
'syem' going around 'st' is 'SYSTEM'.

(Other definitions for system that I've seen before include "Organised method" , "Functioning set of interactive parts" , "Organised means of work" , "Method (of betters?)" , "Arrangement of things working together" .)

I've seen this clue in The Telegraph.
