Senioring management

Two different studies have independently confirmed that the best way to find the best people to promote in your organization is to promote them randomly.

 

Yes.  Really.

Re: Senioring management

I read the article and I am taken back to what I learned in my 4 year degree. You can make statistics prove what you want,, you just have to ask the right questions.

I do think most promotion systems evaluation program stink and that is because there is no effective trial period with most promotions. It is a one-and-done deal. Most places I have seen with a "trial" system either make the trial period too short (Is a year REALLY enough time to discover their faults or just short enough that they can BS through it?) or the trial parameters lack teeth to remedy the situation when a bad promotion happens.

 

I like the premise of the TV show "undercover Boss" where the CEO or head of a company goes to work "undercover" as a lower lever employee in their own organization. They then hear the real problems that plague the company.
