CeeD – where ‘know how’ meets ‘can do’

Kickstart with Quality Scotland

Sowing the 'CeeD' for Business Excellence in 2018

Quality Scotland and CeeD have been working together for the past few years, sharing ideas and best practice as well as developing thoughts on how organisations might be able to grow and flourish with 'collaborative/collective' support.

In 2018 we are delighted to be offering 20 organisations the opportunity to be part of a unique offering bringing together a new network of 20 like-minded organisations collaborating with an excellence approach through a joint Quality Scotland and CeeD membership.

With both organisations operating on a pan-Scotland basis, we are creating a limited 20 new Joint Memberships for SMEs who currently are not members of either organisation.
