The Peter Principle

In a hierarchy, every employee tends to rise to his level of incompetence. Therefore:
– In time, every post tends to be occupied by an employee who is incompetent to carry out its duties.
– Work is accomplished by those employees who have not yet reached their level of incompetence.

B.C. Forbes (1946)

Man was not made for business; business was made for man.

Will Rogers

Even if you’re on the right track, you’ll get run over if you just sit there.

Frederick Smith (Federal Express)

“Lieutenant, there are only three things you gotta remember: shoot, move and communicate.”
