I am going to argue that it does play a big part.
Every project I have seen fail has generally been because someone with great technical skills and a high IQ believes that those skills also mean that they have good judgement.
That then translates into a lack of communication and even in the world of programming there are complexities which require input from outside of the machine and the single individual.
Technical skills are definitely no.1 on the list but I think communication and attitude are no. 2.
“That which can be asserted without evidence, can be dismissed without evidence.”
