Critical of standards

I've recently posted about the new BSI guidelines / PAS (Publically Available Standard) 124 for company website standards, which provides a procedural framework for implementing and managing a company website.

Although the framework within PAS124 sets out to provide various business benefits, such as:

  • reduce the risk of doing something wrong
  • maximise investment
  • improve speed-to-market
  • provide a suggested governance structure

......this new standard hasn't necessarily met with universal approval:

However, I do feel that Marcus from Internet Retailing may have missed the point about the purpose of this standard, he may have a point about it being charged for. Surely this can only hinder its adoption?
