IMO, the bad aspect is that it used to be that the CEO came up through the ranks. Now they are professional managers of a generic company, and may not even KNOW the details of the day to day things the business does.

A good manager can make good decisions given inadequate information.

A perfect manager can operate in perfect ignorance.
