That's not what I'm saying ... If something is going wrong, other people
in the project see that, then they should be allowed to help, shouldn't
they. (This under assumption there's something they can help with)

Well not the whole organisation maybe, but at least some more people

It was meant to be abstract. My point was that [I think that] an
organisation can't work if the only people judging somebodies
work are the people themselves.
Disclaimer: I'm not saying the above applies to the topic in the
subject, I don't know enough about it. I'm just reacting to the
statement that people doing a certain job in the project are the only
ones who can judge they need help with that job.
