When a company's product roadmap is decided not by the needs of users and the market but instead by what will get individual product managers and engineers promoted within the company. This type of product development process misaligns what is good for the company versus what is good for employees causing a company to ship new products or features where there is no market demand for them.
Example: Sometimes product managers are incentivized to launch new products or features because of promotion driven development. This causes companies to launch products or features that are not used, but only serve to help the product manager responsible a promotion because the PM launched a new product.
