Management literature has typically stressed abilities, learned skills and traits as characteristics which, if possessed, will ultimately lead to promotion. The author hypothesizes that because promotions are granted by superiors and organizations, it is their views of promotion potential that are germane to an individual's opportunity. Furthermore, the importance of the superior and the organization to the promotion process is directly related to the level of the manager seeking advancement. Two hypotheses are explored, which if confirmed, would help an individual enhance his promotion potential. Industry might utilize the same hypotheses to examine the merits of its promotion criteria.
