The aim of this book is to present new quality practices adapted to the specifics of innovation processes in order to increase their chances of success while also facilitating support of the creators who are often put off by the constraints of traditional quality management methods. These practices are applied in businesses of all sizes who do not want to broadcast on this subject as they are at the center of the factors that make them competitive. These quality approaches, which are specific to each innovation process, rest on a common methodological platform that is at the core of this book.

There is now a widely accepted view among manufacturing and service organisations that 'operations' can provide the means of achieving competitive edge. The OMA-UK Sixth International Conference has taken this view as its theme and focuses in particular on how technology and people can be used to improve manufacturing and service competitiveness. These proceedings have been organised according to the topics addressed within the overall conference theme and generally fall within three broad areas: technology-based topics, human resource-based topics and general topics. The technology-based topics are: Materials Control, Supply Chain Management and Logistics Flexibility in Operations Systems Computer-Aided Management of Operations Design, Process Planning and 'Time to Market' Factors Application of KBS, Expert Systems and Modelling Production Planning and Control The human resource-based topics are: Work Organisation Human Factors Managing the Implementation of Technology Managing the Quality Improvement Process Education Training and Development Employee Participation and Involvement The general topics are: Operations Strategy International Comparisons and Country-based Papers Performance and Productivity Measurement and Improvement A particular feature of all the papers is that they emphasise the application of techniques, technologies and concepts rather than concentrating on specific functional description. The authors are drawn from around 14 countries and represent both the academic and industrial communities. Many are involved in the 'mainstream' of operations management while a number are from other disciplines relevant to the conference theme, such as industrial engineering and organisational behaviour.

The relationship between information and decision-making is a complex one and has been the subject of extensive research spanning several decades, with roots in nineteenth and early twentieth century economic theories. More recently, researchers have suggested a relationship between the quality of information and the quality of decision-making, with a consequent relationship with organizational strategy; however, there has been very little research in which this relationship was investigated systematically. This research set forth contextual and conceptual models relating information quality to strategy and then provided an empirical investigation of the relationship between information quality and organizational outcomes, with information intensity hypothesized as a moderator of that relationship. Data for this study were collected through a Web-based survey of individuals associated with an industry consortium and were evaluated through a combination of multiple regression analysis, moderated regression analysis, and subgroup analysis. Data analysis revealed evidence that the relationship between the quality of information and organizational outcomes is systematically measurable, in that measurements of information quality can be used to predict organizational outcomes, and that this relationship is, for the most part, positive. An unexpected finding was that different regression models emerge when stakeholder roles in an information system are taken into consideration. Data analysis did not reveal support for the hypothesis that information intensity moderates the relationship between information quality and organizational outcomes.

Findings and conclusions. Using VED about 2004 environmental performance, this study finds that companies emphasizing investment in brand image are likely to voluntarily provide more environmental information than companies that do not emphasize this strategy. Companies emphasizing investment in R&D are likely to make more voluntary disclosures about actual environmental performance than companies that do not emphasize the strategy.
