I think that it is more likely to produce results, because a
cross-functional team is more likely to contain people skilled enough
to accomplish heroics. However, I think that when it fails it is more
likely to fail catastrophically, because people will simply give up
and look for other things to do (I have been one of those people.)
- I think also team based organizations do need leaders and there should be a succession plan for CTO and the like.
I read this book years ago before starting with scrum and it deals with some of your concerns.

From my own experience (in a role of traditional project manager in my past industry experience), project plans elaborated with Gnatt charts, etc., do not work well for software projects, unless the project requirements/scope is very stable, technology platform is very stable, there are very low risks, and it’s a simple, small, short duration project… and that is a rare occurrence indeed.
