And corporations/think tanks modeled on 2GW forces. ;)

Seems to me like yet another application of "The Dilbert Principle". In a properly functioning organization everyone should be recruiting better smarter people than they are. If the leader is effective and good at leading, by definition the leader is the stupidest least capable person in the organization.

The challenge is always structuring the operation to take advantage of that distribution of talent.

Shloky beat me to the punch. The cognitive waste you describe is symptomatic of all industrial era, newtonian paradigm, hierarchical-bureaucratic orgs - corporations, states, armies, education systems ( ironically).
