But the timing is suspect. He lost his job with Wellington in 1973, and immediately became a convert to passive management.

There are a few experts in various fields that I'm aware of.
I think those who have gone through serious challenges to their way of thinking, and as a result changed views completely, deserve particular attention.
Further, these changes take significant time, and so I don't see a necessary problem with being labeled a hypocrite.
Most people at the start of a career don't know that much, and may hold certain views that naturally change as they gain experience and hopefully wisdom.
The test of time is the important one.
