RE: standards

David
   The first thing to find out is what type of standards they are interested
in.
 - Table naming standards?
 - Physical layout standards?
 - Network naming standards?
 - Hours when database support is available?
You don't want to ask the question directly because your manager may say
"everything". The answer then is that it will take a long time. Usually
there are some hot-button issues and you'll want to investigate and propose
some standards for those areas. Usually the value is in the investigation
and decision-making. After that the standards are tossed on a shelf to
gather dust.
