"Pay pegged to Learning" can lead to much
complication if the Focus is out-of-orbit, though
with good intention.

If LEARNING is viewed as a PROCESS, then Pay should not
be pegged to a Process, but OUTCOME of the PROCESS.
The OUTCOME must be well designed and defined with
good measurement, which imply good understanding of
SYSTEM FORCES in deriving a set of meaningful parameters.

The Structue and System on "assumption of responsibility"
should be viewed as facilitation mechanism to ensure
effective Learning Process.

Another way to look at LEARNING : if we believe that
Learning is the basic intrinsic nature of every human being,
i.e. a natural inclination, then pay need not and should not
be pegged to Learning.

Just a point of View from
