Replying to LO19476 --

Dear all,

In my earlier response to this now dated (?) thread, I asked to hear about
organisations that had successfully married the pursuit of 'formal'
quality (eg accreditation schemes) with the maintenance and development of
innovation and creativity.

I am still very much interested in examples, case studies and commentaries
on this topic. I have a feeling that in general the pursuit of 'formal'
quality actively stops people being creative and innovative, but I will be
pleased to stand corrected.
