People ask me all the time why we are working with an innovation standard at ANSI/ISO. I believe the referenced article from the New York Times says a lot about why standards are important.

The Joy or Standards

more relevant are the super used ISO9000 (Quality management system) and 14000 (Environmental management) series, now complemented with 45,000 (Occupational health and safety)- if new ISO 56000- Innovation Management system, which aligns and complements these, can piggy-back on the fame and usefulness of these for mid-size (and large) organizations... it will be a great achievement... but the road is long to get there,,, and while quality, environment, and safety in enterprises and institutions is well established... innovation management is an emerging discipline (and contested as to many areas and practitioner, which IAOIP aims to clarify, codify (the GISH does a great attempt already and certifications) and standardize.

Standards allow interoperability between different vendors' solutions and may contribute to economies of scale (if more parties are agreeing to it). In the high tech, highly innovative environment, we still see many standards being used. USB-C, Micro/Mini-USB ports & charging cables, GSM/LTE standards etc are amongst the popular examples. In innovation space, I guess it's a conscious decision that the design teams need to decide and choose where & when to follow the norm, and when to break away.
