    2021.04.05

    University of Leeds

    Today we scan the revision status of best practice titles with a compressed public consultation timeline.  On “continuous maintenance” standards development platforms, for example, exposure drafts are open for comment for as little as 30 to 45 days.  There is scant time to respond to the call for public comment.  We set aside one session per month to review and respond.  This happens most frequently with “stabilized” standards — i.e. titles that receive relatively little public response when released for review — which does not necessarily mean they cannot be improved and brought up to the moment.

  • Commoditization

    Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore Student Art

    Innovation – Standardization – Commoditization run along a continuum.  Today we unpack some of the ideas that hasten and prohibit leading practice discovery, how quickly goods and services become a “human right”, why all of this is relevant to education communities and why some believe that commoditization is a myth.

    From the Wikipedia

    In business literature, commoditization is defined as the process by which goods that have economic value and are distinguishable in terms of attributes (uniqueness or brand) end up becoming simple commodities in the eyes of the market or consumers. It is the movement of a market from differentiated to undifferentiated price competition and from monopolistic competition to perfect competition. Hence, the key effect of commoditization is that the pricing power of the manufacturer or brand owner is weakened: when products become more similar from a buyer’s point of view, they will tend to buy the cheapest.
