Global Standards: A Driving Force for Commerce
Standards expand consumer choice. They grow markets, and they contribute significantly to interoperability. Standards fuel the pace of technical evolution, and standards contribute significantly by shrinking the world through the creation of global markets. This course discusses the fundamental nature of standards, the value of standards to industry and the role that industry plays in standards development. The various standards development organizations both national and international are also reviewed. Changing industry dynamics across technology, politics and economics all add complexity to the standards-development process.
