...and peer programming, but my management chain doesn't consider peer programming as an "efficient" use of resources.

I've done a modified version of pair programming where two programmers discuss what needs to be done, then write the same functionality separately and test against each other. It works well when you don't really know what y should be where y = f(x) but still need to build the function.
