Styles Come and Go; Consistency Is Timeless

Scott Theis, Chair, XBRL US Domain Steering Committee, President and CEO, Novaworks

A taxonomy style guide isn’t about creating a memorable “style”. The style guide is about building clear, transparent, understandable standards that result in predictable communication every time. XBRL relies on a taxonomy of concepts to identify facts, contexts and other relationships. Any ambiguity in the language used within that taxonomy to communicate data, could produce inconsistent results.

Have you found the right team to build successful standards?

Campbell Pryde, President & CEO, XBRL US

Trust. It’s one of the most important considerations when hiring a guide to lead a challenging mountain climb. The same is true with developing standards. Only a specialist with the right skillset and experience can help build a good quality taxonomy or XBRL instance document. Find the right people through XBRL Achievements.
