Leyendo el artículo me doy cuenta de que necesitas una traducción polivalente y más adaptada al contexto. Así pues te sugiero burocrático, burocrátizado, burocratizar, etc. según la frase.

Pues en este caso yo diría que Turner ejerce de burócrata en la primera parte (But while Turner ticks all the boxes), y luego que es un burócrata en "he is a box-ticker".

pero también debe ser una palabra que describa esto:
demands to comply with every rule, regardless of common sense

Por tanto, excesivamente meticulosopodría ser una buena traducción.
