I agree with you in this excellent piece, and for most modern corporate warfare, this is probably how one wins. However, could art be an exception? Many great artists use assistants, or technology, or engineering to realize their projects (Christo). But it costs, so the majority are solo workers. Yes, networks are in play to effect sales. But the work can be said to be attributable to one individual. Even in tech, the over-used example: No new visionary products from Apple since Jobs. Why? Bigger, stronger workforce, yes. More money, absolutely. That is not vision. Anyone with resources can do that. So the treatise you present has, like everything else, porous edges.
