Stratek Technology Leadership Programme, G C T Mathibe, John Shanahan: The Stratek Technology Programme is dedicated to training young engineers for key management careers. G C T Mathibe's thesis addresses the issue of sound infrastructure management. Only in a few countries, notably France and Switzerland has infrastructure management been done exceedingly well, consistently for a long time. This is essential.
