Learning and innovation – quality for many

A sample of articles on improvement theories and work chosen by the authors are published here with their permission. All of these distinguished persons are fellows of Qulturum and they visited us during the spring 2008 to teach and to share their knowledge and experiences. We were honored to host them and to be able to present them to participants in our seminars, collaboratives and conferences!
