Replying to LO18945 --

Responding to this and Richard's reply:

I know some people are put off by structures, especially bureaucratic
structures, and especially government sponsored bureaucratic structures.
However it would be worth considering the priiciples and indicators laid
out in the U.K. Investors in People model.

It's not rocket science but it is a million miles beyond where lots of
comapnies are - and it's structure seems to give it a feel to which
opertional managers and others can relate.

Also, despite what people may say, it is NOT bureaucratic - unless you let
it become so.
