This depends on what we're talking about.

Are we talking about coding? Or are we talking about building software?

There are plenty of good coders writing decent code, and we know how to become better coders.

Building software is a different kettle of fish, involves far greater complexity, and lots of different people, not just coders. Do we struggle to build software? Yes. Can we improve how we build software? Yes, but only a small part of the problem relates to code and coders.
