If you aren't a good programmer, moving up to management will most likely make you a not good manager. There is a rare exception but most programmers aren't great people people which a good manager has to be.

This comment makes no sense at all. Programming and management are completely different skills. Lacking one does not in any way imply a lack of the other.

Engineering (any discipline) and management (of people) are completely different skills. There are good and bad in both fields. The good do a lot of work and are productive, the bad don't. It doesn't matter what field they're in.
