LAURENCE J. PETER AND RAYMOND HULL
  CHECK READING LIST (1)  

Never do card tricks for the group you play poker with.
      - The Peter Principle
        [Laws of Life and Nature]

Percussive Sublimation is the promotion of an incompetent employee to a "higher" position which brings on no new responsibility but unclogs the rest of the hierarchy. This is known as kicking someone upstairs. Hierarchiology tells us that every thriving organization will be characterized by this accumulation of deadwood at the excutive level, consisting of percussive sublimatees and potential candidates for percussive sublimation.
      - The Peter Principle
        [Laws of Life and Nature]

The Lateral Arabesque is another pseudo-promotion. Without being raised in rank--sometimes without even a pay raise--the incompetent employee is given A NEW AND LONGER TITLE and is moved to an office in a remote part of the building. . . . so we see that percussive sublimation and lateral arabesques can serve to keep the drones out of of the hair of the workers.
      - The Peter Principle
        [Laws of Life and Nature]

In a hierarchy every employee tends to rise to his level of incompetence.
      - The Peter Principle (ch. 1) [Competence]
