Have you ever wondered why all keyboards are QWERTY Keyboards? There was a time when all typewriter manufacturers had their own special formats. At some point, companies started aligning to the QWERTY keyboard. As a result, all typists needed to operate on just one keyboard, getting trained became cheaper and easier, increasing the productivity.The list of the transformational impact of standards is long.
In India, the framework of creating and using occupational standards has been set up and follows some of the best practices from across the world.
