From Concrete & Objective To Abstract & Subjective

Most companies, because of a UCB-anchored perception of a lack of viable alternatives, institute a digitized, leveled job description policy. Typically, as the level of importance increases up the corpo chain of command, the skills and behaviors and performance required of a candidate transition from concrete and semi-measurably objective, to abstract and unmeasurably-subjective. Even in those rare cases where performance expectations of managers/directors/executives are specified as measurable, it either isn’t measured, or poor performance is well camouflaged in order to keep the high level dudes in their ka-ching penthouse. Thus, at some mysterious and unknown threshold on the curve below, behavior starts trumping merit as one moves upward.
