Don´t listen to the HiPPOs!
HiPPO is an acronym for the "highest paid person's opinion" or the "highest paid person in the office." The acronym is used to describe the tendency for lower-paid employees to defer to higher-paid employees when a decision has to be made.
The term can also be used to describe an organization's reliance on human instinct rather than data in the decision-making process.
"When it comes tho the quality of decision-making, pay level is irrelevant and experience is valuable only if it is used to frame a winning argument. In most companies, experience is the winning argument. We call these places "tenurocracies", because porquer derives from tenure, not merit". Extract from "How Google works" by Eric Schmidt and Jonathan Rosenber.
