Call for Book Chapters

EFFECTIVE STANDARDIZATION MANAGEMENT IN CORPORATE SETTINGS

Editor: Kai Jakobs, RWTH Aachen University


*****Extended Deadline for Proposal Submission: 16 November 2014.*****



General
-------
Standardisation is no longer an almost exclusively technical activity. Rather, most large firms as well as policy makers and many other public sector entities have by now realised the economic and political relevance of standards. This holds particularly, though certainly not exclusively, for the field of Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs).

Accordingly, an increasing number of both firms and public authorities experience the need to properly manage their standardisation activities. These activities range from a 'laissez-faire' approach to a strictly managed activity with well-defined roles and processes.

Over the past decades, standardisation research has become an increasingly popular topic, with potentially significant practical ramifications. 'Potentially' is an important qualification, though - thus far, the links between research and real-life practice are still weak; all too often insights from academia just don't get noticed by industry. Likewise, research does not necessarily address those aspects of relevance for practitioners. This book aims to help narrow the gap between research and practice in the field of standardisation management. 


Objective
---------
The book covers the various aspects that relate to the management of standardisation in private firms as well as in the public sector. Its main objective is to help identify good practices in the management of standardisation activities, both internal and external. 


Target Audience
---------------
The book's topic may be addressed from very different angles. Accordingly, it will be of relevance to both practitioners and researchers from various disciplines including, but not limited to Business Studies, Computer Science, Economics, Engineering, History, Information Systems, Law, Management Studies and Sociology.


Sample Topics 
-------------
Topic covered include, but are by no means limited to
* approaches to corporate standardisation management in the public and the private sector;
* corporate standardisation strategies;
* selection of suitable standards bodies;
* internal vs.(?) external standardisation;
* IPR management;
* links between R&D and standardisation;
* standardisation and organisational learning aspects;
* intra- and inter-organisational flows of information about standardisation;
* marketing and standardisation;
* the individual in standards setting ? selection, training, motivation;
* new ways of co-operation between standards bodies;
* potential new standardisation landscapes.
