Agree. A good design is nothing if you don't present it to PM in a right way.

Ah yes, and conversely being wrong doesn't matter if you're able to convince everyone how right you are.

People have different reasons for being right, or making others wrong, that may or may not have to do with supporting collaboration.

Disclosure and, or, discovery of the underlying motive/s is the key to authenticity, which is desirable, if downright not necessary, for collaborative actions.

or even:
c'est avoir tort que d'avoir raison trop tôt.

(being right too soon is as good as being wrong)

This reminds me, "If you wish to convince people of something, it is more useful to be entertaining than to be right"
