It restricts employees from asking questions to their superior which could raise a lot of unnecessary doubts and poor implementation. Also Richard and Jason theory allows firms to blame their employees for their ineffective execution and failure. To understand it more one needs to take a brilliant strategy that is being poorly executed. So the question raised is how brilliant the result is poor.

It can be possible that brilliant strategy can work for other companies so brilliant strategies are those whose results are exemplary.
