Welcome to popular Wiki of the Day where we read the summary of a popular Wikipedia page every day.
With 244,948 views on Wednesday, 04 October 2017 our article of the day is Peter principle.
The Peter principle is a concept in management theory formulated by educator Laurence J. Peter and published in 1969. It states that the selection of a candidate for a position is based on the candidate's performance in their current role, rather than on abilities relevant to the intended role. Thus, employees only stop being promoted once they can no longer perform effectively, and "managers rise to the level of their incompetence".
