The Peter Principle,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Peter Principle: Why Things Always Go Wrong (Paperback)
This isn't a new publication and I actually bought this copy for a friend, having read it myself some years ago. It's an amusing look at how organisations work and how there there is a logical explanation for the gradual accumulation of incompetency that often seems to characterize established bureaucratic structures. The basic principle is perfectly straightforward and is sure to ring bells in your own experience. Further into the book, however, the author gets into certain 'embellishments' of the fundamental Principle and provides strategies for avoiding its worse effects, or indeed to avoid falling foul of them yourself. Well worth a read!
