Forcing a style of practice needs proof that it consistently ensures better quality. Be wary of too much enthusiasm about an idea until you prove it works all the time - and not that you're getting regression to a mean. Management by committee doesn't always work for all. Some captains may be better alone, while others need the team. Use data, not conformity as the decision maker.
