The Peter Principle: The scientific reason everything is a bit shit

The Peter Principle: The scientific reason everything is a bit shit

(8:40) We live in times of seemingly unending progress - and yet somehow things still always go wrong: trains are late, broadband speeds suck and the promotion always goes to the wrong person.

The Peter Principle is close to "The Dilbert Principle."

"The Dilbert principle refers to a 1990s theory by Dilbert cartoonist Scott Adams stating that companies tend to systematically promote their least-competent employees to management (generally middle management), in order to limit the amount of damage they are capable of doing."
