This is my last contribution to the EATA newsletter in the president’s role. My term will be soon over. In my personal perception I learned in the first year, then I made mistakes in the second year and started to work in the third year. Nevertheless, I am deeply thankful that I had the chance to contribute to this vital and important community in this role. I am thankful that I could meet so competent, engaged, experienced colleagues from all over Europe and from all over the world.
I made the experience that 3 years are 3 years and that the idea to develop and install reliable, sustainable change in a complex organization is probably an expression of naivety or grandiosity – or both.
