So the standard, that hasn’t changed in the past ten years, hasn’t been updated and/or improved upon is the Standard?

The standard that we have built countless workarounds, around everything that we do and has added workload to all that we do?

Standards are great, only if they evolve. When they stop evolving, they stop becoming a standard and instead become a nuisance or a tolerance.

If you are responsible for a standard, identify what it does and doesn’t so it’s clear what people get from you. Look at the evolving nature of what your standard is, how does it get better, how does it grow, how does it improve, what does it look like in the future.

When you ask yourself these questions, the standard evolves and grows.

That’s what makes a Standard worthwhile.
