Abstract

We note that today ideas and models regarding both how to perform activities and how to pre¬sent oneself are generously offered to all organisations. Thus ideas concerning organisational models, management principles and quality assurance travel between countries, fields and organisations (Czarniawska and Sevòn, 1996). Organisations in the public sector, faced with the demand for higher productivity and customisation with reduced resources, will often find solutions to their problems in ideas circulating in their particular organisation field (DiMaggio, 1983; Jacobsson, 1995). In this project, one such idea is studied; the idea of health care quality assurance.
