What Sirius Teaches Us About ISO
Creative Commons Attribution-No Derivative Works 4.0

Summary: Based on my experiences inside Sirius ‘Open Source’ — as I was there for nearly 12 years — I finally tell what I’ve witnessed about ISO certification processes (see ISO wiki for prior experiences)

Sirius ‘Open Source’ taught me a whole bunch of things; some were valuable technical skills, but many were negative experiences that I can finally explain out in the open, expressing in words various ideas that I formed (or formulated) years ago.

The above video concerns ISO and it is relatively long because it covers two parts instead of just one, starting with background and proceeding to real-life examples in the form of redacted E-mails.

The conclusion I reached years ago is that ISO is somewhat of a scam. It creates a barrier that mostly protects monopoly and it makes a lot of money by giving worthless papers, essentially turning managerial ‘religion’ into a fat cash cow. If more people understood the business model of ISO, maybe there would be no ISO anymore.
