Previous implementations suggest that having more than one chief executive can help a company accomplish more by delegating different roles to each head. Although this system is not meant for every company. Big companies do need to handle a lot of things having this big spread of their product or services.

In a small company where decisions could be quick, this thing would do nothing but delay things and result in chaos.
