No, that's the nice thing about delivering a product based upon
technical merit: most of the time, there are right answers and there
are wrong answers, and careful investigation and good management can
lead to it being determined which is which.

Collaboration works when good ideas get kept and bad ideas get dropped.
Collaboration fails when good ideas are rejected because people don't
like who came up with them or the tone in which they were presented, or
when bad ideas are kept around to avoid hurting the feelings of the
people who came up with those ideas.
