Describes how the Scottish Office Education Department funded a "stock-taking exercise" by researchers based in the Department of Education at the University of Stirling during 1992/93. The project's main aims were to map and analyse the range and complexity of education-industry links (EIL) in Scotland. The picture which emerged was a complex one, with many competing and overlapping initiatives vying for space in school curricula ‐ dubbed "policy hysteria". Examines ways of analysing this complexity and finds that many national schemes and initiatives took on a distinctly "tartan" flavour in their Scottish manifestations. Selects the questions of "domestication" and "progression" within the EIL curriculum for further development.
