By developing your Standard based on the Principle that you have developed, you are off to a good start.
Principles help you pass on the “WHY” of your standard. Once the Standard is developed you will have the “WHAT”
Here is a graphic that will help you see how principles keep you focused in the right direction.
You can move from Chaotic CAD to Destination CAD by trying to stay on track.
Drifting to the left will leave you with Ethereal CAD where no one documents the WHAT, and the conversation never moves past the vague discussions of what you should be doing.
Drifting to the right will leave you with Despot CAD where the rules are rigid and no one understands the WHY of the rules they are forced to follow.
Blending the right mixture of principles and rules will achieve what everyone wants. A solid Standard based on shared Principles.
