On the surface, Michael Scott seemed like the most incompetent man for the job. But he showed flashes of brilliance that suggest he might actually be an effective manager in Dunder Mifflin.

If you’re still not convinced that Michael Scott might actually be a good manager, here are five episodes to strengthen his case.

The Client (Season 2 Episode 7)

Michael’s distractions were actually successful attempts to make the client feel more comfortable before the actual pitch. He’s a lot more perceptive than he seems.

Instead of focusing on the office supply convention they’re all attending, Michael spent his time planning a party.

Then, Michael revealed that he has already secured a deal with the biggest fish in town, proving once again that he was a better salesman than most people realize.
