In an org of any non trivial size, no it won't work and it will increase management burden long term because it will damage things. As teams grow, supervision and communication get non linearly harder and less efficient. If you give some rogue the root keys and carte blanche, they may well get sh*t done but will also, almost certainly, cause a lot of problems for others.

Discipline, good hiring practice and clear goals and accountability at all levels are what's needed.

I don't see much discipline, good hiring practice, or clear goals in history. Why would it suddenly help now?
