I found the following quote in this story about problems at the CIA:
"[Y]ou're getting into the problem of very junior, inexperienced people, which a lot of veteran CIA people feel now is part of the problem. Porter Goss has to double the number of operational people in an environment where there are no mentors. Who's going to train these people?"
This reminded me of the problems in information technology. There is far too much infrastructure being operated by far too many inexperienced people who have no mentors.
