It is that teaching research faculty think about about how they teach AFTER they have thought about everything else.
This is just a fact based on the laws governing professional practices of humans1.
It would be like a team of accountants were trying to fix a car. If they are smart enough and persistent enough, and resourceful enough, they will succeed. But at the least they could do it much faster if they employed the help of an auto professional.
The psychological trait (being afraid of looking stupid) of many people who consider themselves smart (and they are – in their field), or a cultural trend (being secretive) of people who consider themselves open, is a tough obstacle which an adequate manager building an effective team needs to overcome.
