I can't explain any putative stabilization after, but certainly a
company with good technical managers can still produce bad software.
There's no way a good manager can force a "mongolian horde" programming
team (also sometimes known as an "army of golems") to produce a good
product. It's hard enough to do that with a small team of carefully
selected expert programmers, and there seems to be a very limited
supply of those.
