The thing that makes Micheal Scott's character work so well even though he's an awful manager is that throughout the series they will remind from time to time that the dude is a top notch salesman, one of the best... which is probably why he got promoted... and that's the problem, he's a great salesman but a horrible leader. This is reflected a lot in the real world, look at Wayne Gretzky, great player, terrible coach. That's what makes Scott so engaging, he's a horrible boss but you understand why he got the job.
