Benefits of standards
Assessment Methodology and international case studies
The ISO Methodology is a step-by-step approach to assessing and quantifying the economic benefits generated by the use of standards. The methodology is typically applied at the level of an individual organization, typically a company, to identify the activities for which standards are used, with the objective to investigate how standards support these activities and thereby contribute to the creation of value for the organization. It is also possible to extend the methodology to the assessment of the impacts of standards on a whole industry sector.
This book introduces into the use of the ISO Methodology in order to assess and quantify the economic benefits of standards.
The ISO Methodology can be used by everybody interested in assessing the impacts of standards, such as national standards bodies and other standards development organizations, but also by companies or researchers to help understand better the impacts of standards and to further improve performance through the use of standards.
