The author reports that the Curriculum Development Institute (CDI) was established in April 1992 as a new Division of the Education Department. It was characterized by its special contractual staffing arrangement which hopefully could produce a desired working culture expected of a professional agency. The CDI was still in its formative stage, and the author believed that the organizational structure of CDI could be further streamlined to develop a greater degree of autonomy and professionalism and that, to succeed, quality and innovation needed to be initiated and owned by every member of the institute.
