March-April 2017

Active ageing

If you think “aged”, “senior” and “elderly” are negative buzzwords, think again!

Businesses, large and small, have begun to use the ageing market as a lens through which to view their strategic plans. Contrary to common negative perceptions, older adults are creating a new niche market and fuelling growth and innovation.

ISOfocus

Published in English, French and Spanish, six times per year, ISOfocus is your gateway to International Standards.

Whether a multinational enterprise faced with major decisions or a small business looking for ideas, ISOfocus seeks to provide both the kind of overviews that strategic planners need and the little details that can make a big difference.

You will find international topics covering everything from IT and transport to personal stories and everything in between. Our goal is to bring you the highest-quality information and most up-to-date and internationally relevant material on standards in each issue.
