I actually feel headless WordPress would be a great option for companies with very limited tech skills. EVEN THOUGH it just feels kind of odd in the eyes of a developer. But yeah! I totally agree with you! More focus on the end-product and less fighting over the tools!

I think the question is not about the company, but about the market. It makes no sense to offer a highly technological product that your customer cannot afford.
Before thinking about technology, I believe that several issues have to be considered, such as the country where your company operates.
I completely understand the limitation of developers to think more about business and not just follow orders from their manager or their friends in the community. It is very common in companies with large technological skills where I see it to be similar to the behavior of industrial workers.

That makes so much sense! And tech shouldn't be used for the sake of tech, but used when it offers value to your customers. On the flipside I do feel that more interest is emerging in Denmark where I live for JamStack and pages made with JamStack principles. WordPress is still great because it offers a really low entry barrier. As a developer myself I would love to be able to build JamStack pages with a low barrier to the end-users of the page. I genuinely feel headless WordPress IS moving towards this goal.
