Agility Between Freedom and Order

Work in large industrial corporations is defined by processes, roles and standards — centrally planned, elaborated, documented, rolled out, trained and regularly checked for compliance. In return, there are ISO and DIN stamps and everyone is happy. On the paper, anyway.

The question rather is whether agile organizations require processes and standards. And if so, how these actually emerge and develop.
