Top Definition
An army term meaning promotion to a higher position after a senior employee screwed up an assignment. The rest of his career will be served with no more damage. Can be used by any large bureaucracy, but less so by corporations. Read the Peter Principle where an employee is promoted to his highest level of incompetence.
The minister responsible for the African "Ground Nut Scheme" boondoggle during the 1950s was given a promotion and a title. His new position required no real work, it was a classic case of fuck up move up.
