What could possibly go wrong? ... disasters and how to avoid them

This session will look at the role of quality management systems in organisations and will focus on PQASSO in particular - a whole organisation quality management system developed by and for the third sector.  The session will also look at Charity Commission examples of where things went wrong in organisations, whether those situations could have been prevented and what remedial action might be taken.
