What is interesting to me, is that if a website is a very high profile website then the management around the webiste may be in the point 1 mark also.
Most management is in the first category. There's a reason for that -- their job is a nebulous one, one that's hard to do right and harder to estimate the quality of from the outside.
I'm not apologizing for bad management; it's repugnant that an important job (oversight and organizational design) is so often done by wretched social whores. My point is that the job has high complexity and less supervision, and is therefore likely to be a place that incompetents unconsciously set out to end up.
I guess this is interesting to me because i dont understand why people dont do some research into areas that a) they may be novice in and b) there is bound to be lots of information out there on said topic.
People don't do research because it's hard. There are a class of people who don't do hard things. They don't like hard things because doing hard things invites failure, and failure scares them. Those people push to be managers for the bad reason: Low accountability, easy blame possibilities, high income, etc.
You are what you think.
