The tayloristic approach of applying centralized processes falls short in volatile and agile environments. In hastily diverting and changing environments, it’s foremost biggest asset – the unified optimization – turns into an unbearable burden. This paper illustrates a more agile approach to process management applicable to both small and large organizations at the example of an existing solution for software development processes. Instead of a centralized one-size-fits-all process itself, a risk based framework of process requirements is provided centrally whilst the valid processes themselves are defined and maintained at the most local level. This approach enables both flexibility and compliance even in highly volatile environments as organizations in the midst of an agile transformation.
