    Current approaches to standardization range from dismally formal to reckless; results range from pointless or even comic to spectacular but ephemeral. Given its foundation in the disciplines of marketing and engineering, why does standardization seem, in practice, more like-an art? View full abstract»

    Your daughter is having a birthday party. She wants to invite most of the kids in her class. But a few troublemakers exist. Billy, for example, always disrupts the party: knocking the birthday cake onto the floor spilling ice cream over your Persian rug, stepping on the cat's tail. Must you invite Billy, too! Not in the US: the First Amendment gives you a constitutional right to freedom of associa... View full abstract»

    As part of the IEEE P2100 working group, we produced a SerialExpress draft standard that specifies a high-performance interconnect for use with workstations. Our goal was to develop an inexpensive, efficient, robust, scalable protocol for use in system area network (SAN) applications. Within this environment, we used buslike read and write transactions to provide an efficient mechanism for transfe... View full abstract»

    Standardization, at both the national and international level, can affect a firm's competitive advantage. Does your organization have a voice in these important deliberations? If you're not “at the table”, you'll have little or no chance to propose your own ideas for consideration in a national or international standard. Think about what is important to your organization and how you ca... View full abstract»
