The supervision is first of all a care in the box before being a care to the research process. The question we ask ourselves, and to which the contributions gathered here have not proposed an answer, is: should we first take care of the supervisory relationship before taking care of the epistemological relationship? It is not excluded, and this is the risk that we take here, that to care for the management relationship is to provide the box the optimal conditions for success, and the framer an opportunity for personal development and professional. Therefore, a framework that would lead to the student leaving higher education should give the teacher a professional feeling thwarted, because a coaching perfectible is also a source of self-development and promotion of the completion of the thesis or dissertation. Contributors have been able to cope with "disappointments in the field", since they have left nothing behind, forgotten or hidden, even if it could detract from their behavior and give them a bad image. They reported on the antagonisms observed between mentors-supervised and mentors-supervised-institutions, disruption and relational conflicts, the inadequacies of students and some supervisors. They ignored the threats of registration that are legion in African academics, refusing to corrupt the mind, presenting the facts as they discovered on the ground. Similarly, some supervisors trivially presented the management problems they faced, admitting weaknesses regardless of the consequences that such an admission may generate in terms of disappointing image of them, or of appear in an unfavorable light, like a framer without quality or incompetent.
