The big lesson on conducting a war learned post-Vietnam was that corporate management, particluarly crony capitalist corporate managment, was utterly useless. All the corporate second stringers from WW II thought they knew what they were doing and bollixed things beyond the ability of the military to repair.

Now, we have second rate third stringers trying to run things. These crackpots couldn't run a gas station profitably without taxpayer subsidies.
