You'd hope he'd do his own due diligence. He could easily have contacted Gauthier or Murphy for first hand experience of what he might face. He's also moved from a role that was behind the scenes and excessively resourced to one that is in the full public glare, largely locally, but depending on instances, potentially on a national or international level. I've no issue with him backing himself, or that there was an undoubted skills and experience gap on day one of him joining. But you have to be honest and look at what you need. Either in resource, the people you have at your disposal, and the skills you have to give. everyone has the capacity to learn. Not everyone has the capacity to implement those learnings.
