  • 26. Danish learning
    A standards framework should cover the whole supply chain
    Business processes should be well defined
    Content should be well defined
    Support for extensions needed
    Placeholder for “Any content”
    Standards should be governed with a business focus
    Changes made to a standard has costs for those involved
    Stability is more important than having the perfect standard
