I am sorry I did not hear your interventions on that topic.  I agree 
that careerism is an issue, but it is one that I think can be solved 
with greater accountability in the system, which is hard to institute in 
a temporary project on a 5 year revolving mandate. Further steps in a 
maturity model in my view cannot be made without some stability.
Kind regards, Stephanie Perrin
