The Peter Principle seems most applicable to business management,
especially at the director and higher level. The flaw with trying to
apply it to lower ranking staff is its assumption that once someone
rises to the level of his or her incompetence he or she will be left
there and never fired, and while there certainly must be some companies
that are reluctant to fire people at lower staff levels, I've not
encountered one myself.
