About Standards Development


What is a Standard?
A standard is a document recognized as a model of authority or excellence that provides rules, guidelines or characteristics for activities and/or their results. Standards are developed under a process based on the concepts of consensus, openness, due process, and balance.


William Frick & Company standards provide guidelines for achieving specific project, program and portfolio management results.


How are Standards Developed?
Our standards are developed and approved under a consensus-based process that ensures all interested stakeholders can participate.


Standards development follows seven steps:

  1. Frick Standards Council (FSC) is chartered to develop a specific standard. This committee includes a chair, vice-chair and two other members. A WFCo staff member is also assigned as a resource. FSC will seek individuals pursuing membership on a Standards committee (SC) who are interested in developing and maintaining the standard.
  2. The Standards committee shall identify projects that require research and development for a specific market and inform the FSC.
  3. The Standards committee meets over a period of several months to draft and refine the standard.
  4. A subcommittee and a group of subject matter experts review the draft and return it to the Standards committee for revision.
  5. The revised draft is made available for public comment, which the Standards committee reviews and revises again.
  6. The finished standard is sent for approval to the Frick Standards Council, responsible for validating the development process of each WFCo standard.
  7. Upon recommendation by the FSC standards manager, the new standard is approved by the WFCo president for publication.
