Technology Management, Political Intuition and Jon Haidt

An ever keen reader of The Economist, your author noticed 

"Jonathan Haidt's work on political intuitions helps explain how the President enrages them. Mr Haidt argues that political intuition is like riding an elephant. The jockey, who represents reason, may think he is in charge, but he sits on top of a more powerful beast, moral intuition, that goes where it will." -- The Economist July 14th "America's Democrats" special report

Modify the analogy, replace jockey with CTO and elephant with development group.

How many organisations have you seen where the CTO is disconnected from the technology 
teams that are actually delivering the code?
