    • 2. 2005 Goals
      • Maintain a financially viable standards program
      • Ensure IEEE-SA protects IEEE interests in legal matters
      • Maximize international strategic alliances
      • Progress support services for standards development
      • Grow the Corporate Program
      • Develop volunteer and staff resources
      • Update the Business Strategy
    • 3. Four Critical Elements of the Strategy
      • Internationalization
      • Corporate Program
      • Individual Program

      • Further discussion of the role that IP plays in modern standards development
        • Increases in legal exposure
        • Viability of current patent policy
      • Expanded section on impact of emerging market forces
      • Explicit statement of the value/role of the Individual Program
    • 5. Moving Forward: Internationalization
      • Differentiate SA in international arena
        • Use “global”
        • Note value of industry-driven rather than country-based participation
        • IEEE offers lower cost to develop global standard
      • Work SA relationship with China standards developers
      • Evaluate existing international initiatives
      • Address the U.S. image of the SA
    • 6. Moving Forward: Corporate Program
      • Importance to the future of the SA
      • Improve relationship with the industries we serve
      • Identify key industry sectors around which to build an IEEE identity (e.g., small batteries, BPL, GEOSS, interoperability)
      • Establish & implement funding model
    • 7. Moving Forward: Individual Program
      • Importance to the future of the SA
      • Need for clear message: where and when does individual/corporate method work best
      • Introduction of electronic tools to help everyone, including resource-strapped participants
      • Benefit from outreach in academia
        • Pilot program targeting undergrads
        • IEC/IEEE Academic Paper Competition
    • 8. Moving Forward: Funding Model
      • Stabilize finances
        • P&L format under development to evaluate major lines of business (Individual Program, Corporate Program, Standards-Related Businesses)
      • Explore new back-end funding opportunities
    • 9. Looking Back and Ahead: Critical Areas
      • Riding the wave of shifting markets
      • Recognize our changing profile: increasingly, standards drive products, not the reverse
      • Ensuring attention to high-impact technologies needing standardization
      • Making compatible:
        • Increased importance of standards
        • Litigation related to standards
        • Best and least best use of our process
        • International standards infrastructure & new market forces
      • Preserving the best of IEEE’s standards traditions while enabling the work of today’s key drivers
      • STAYING STABLE & COMPETITIVE
    • 10. Riding the wave of shifting markets
      • First-ever challenge to IEEE 802 as JTC1 standards
        • Chinese WAPI encryption amendment to IEEE 802.11 (“Wi-Fi”) incompatible with base
        • Chinese leveraging market power to bend rules of International Standards Bodies
        • IEEE leveraging broad stakeholder community to bring a return to the “RULES”
      • Opening office in China
        • Build bridges with key standards and industry organizations
        • Encourage Chinese technical participation in IEEE
      • Looking to other major markets for additional engagements: e.g., India, Brazil
    • 11. Recognizing shift in our profile: increasingly, standards drive products – not the reverse
