Very interesting topic, I still cannot get my head around the badge system as a whole, in pyramids you basically brake up salaries in a fixed way because most people are trapped in hoping they will make a leap the organization is designed to impede in the first place... (until they leave and new "salary increse dreamers" are recruited)

With badges the game at play is different,  I have always asked my self, how you make sure that the count of badge attribution clearly reflects the hability of the company to make enough money to repay the salary disbursment they require as per their definition?

To my understanding by reading H1 governance policies the base salary is still tied to a set of badges. i guess the first badge set defined buy the compenastion architect would then determine the first salary range, but still the initial question remains unanswered how does he  decide  and adjust  the proportions?
