Working across a very diverse array of sectors, we’ve yet to find a sector that promotes based on management capability. Most people are promoted on technical ability; some just happen to have some innate sense of how to manage. For those companies that do invest in management development, many assume that their management group are uniform i.e., the skills of managing a front-line delivery team are the same as those managing a function.
