Yes. You also made this point earlier in the thread, but it got snipped 
(I'll repeat it here:)

And that is one of the main reasons why, in big business, an executive or 
team of executives from outside the organisation (often from overseas) 
might be installed by a board to do a particular job (e.g. a 
reorganisation).

This is not always because the vision or ability is lacking in-house, it 
is because no-one in-house wants the job (makes to many enemies to say 
"gentoo-macos sucks"), or because noone in-house will be given sufficient 
respect ("he is just one of us, and we don't see a problem") or because 
noone in-house can be trusted to do it (doesn't really apply here, since 
nepotism and corruption aren't the issue).
