Replying to LO11700 --

I am responding to the discussion where Tom Peters is referenced as an
authority on continuous improvement / innovation and is quoted as saying
"incrementalism is innovations worst enemy"...... I have read a number of
his books and IMO have concluded that he knows much which is not so. He
does however have a knack for stating things in such a way that they sound
good, until you think about them.

Best regards,

>Tom Peters says "incrementalism is innovations worst enemy," or something
>to that effect. And I agree. The ISO 9000 standard (at least 9001 and
>9002) which I'm familiar with tacitly encourage incremental improvement.
