Standard Forms = Visual Language

After learning how to read a standard form once,
a person can easily apply the new skill.

The meaning of complex data is discerned in a glance.

It is a language more quickly absorbed
and more accurately conveyed.

When a whole organization shares this language,
the impact is profound.
