About the Webinar:
This webinar will briefly cover the last fifty years of Information Technology (IT) standardization, including some lessons learned, and then focus on tested, timeless, and universal tactics for success in consensus standards development. Each standards participant starts with some combination of knowledge, skills, and experience. To be successful, technical knowledge is necessary but not sufficient. Interpersonal skills are essential for successful negotiation. The first lesson: a sense of humor helps.
