This is how a standard in the industry changes

It moves up because the best get better.

Many people believe that the standards of an industry change three basic ways.

1.)    The entire industry gets better.

2.)    The bottom, or worst part of the industry gets better; or

3.)    Written standards are created that makes the industry get better.

All three are incorrect. (The third belief serves the opposite effect and usually promotes lawsuits.)

Standards change when the best get better and move the standard in the industry upward. It was recently reported that the Boy Scouts of America purchased AED’s for all of its offices and camps. That is an example of the standard changing for camps. It may not affect the youth the camps are designed and run for, however it will affect the adults at the camp.

Has this changed the standard of care for adults and visitors at camps?

In this case we have the largest promoter of camping in the US with 4 million members and more than 300 offices and close to 400 camps putting AED’s in their camps. This is a major move on the part of the industry. A significant, as measured by numbers or percentages of the industry now has AED’s at their camps.

If other youth camps, either based on this, or on their own start installing AED’s as their camps the standard in the industry is shifting towards or requiring having AED’s in camps.

The standard changed.
