They suggest that people will tend to be promoted until they reach their 'position of incompetence'."

I've heard it both ways... now that you mention it. But mostly as a person keeps getting promoted until he gets to one position above his best position..

In the other use... I heard that it is the reasons why manuals are not very good. When they want someone to put together a manual how to assemble a bbq grill... they don't pick the guy/gal out of the assembly line who is the best worker, thus losing production, they take the slacker --- who probably doesn't understand much to begin with
