There's a term called 'getting your ticket punched'.

You relocate to a new team to enhance your skills in order to get promoted.

This isn't it.

They slowed down and stopped this many moons ago, although senior execs do get moved around as they get promoted, however its not the same as taking a young gun and sending him to Brazil for 2 years, or Europe so that you can groom him for an international role in management.

This is a pure smoke and mirrors play by IBM bean counters again.

They are just too clever for their own good.
