IMHO yes jobs were not done as well since focus was to wide, not narrow.

If something happens to said person. The loss is greater. If the drop
the ball, the loss is greater.

There is no reason anyone should have such broad focus. They pick an
area focus on it and work on it. That people take on/eat to much, then
fail to chew it is not ok. Thus this is designed to prevent that from
occurring.

Just like Jacob should have had backup. There should be more recruiters,
more people on QA, etc. Until ever little detail of every job is being
done to perfection. There is no need to stack titles, or widen focus. We
need more narrow focus and doing a better job all around.
