  Standardization is a Tool Within Strategy
R.D. van Rees, Project Manager, Netherlands, Member
  Dear Goetjaer,
I can keep it real simple. A strategy is a tool you use to achieve a goal or multiple goals. Standardization is a tool within a strategy. Standardization is used to make monitoring of a process more easy and is often used by multinational enterprises because of their size.

  Standardization: Tactic and Strategy
zarkaoui Rachid, ICT Consultant, France, Member
  Standardization should be defined as consolidation of the best practices in a field. There is no standardization without capitalization of know-how. At the operational level, employees enrich the experience of the company or what we call the learning system.
- Standardization is a tactic: the organization learns when doing the business. It means errors are committed during its life. An error should not be repeated twice. Every mistake is a cost for the organization. In other words, it is a mean to reduce costs.
- Standardization is a strategy: standardization responds to a strategy of independency from employees. In this case, employees are the important resource of the company. A key employee can put pressure on the company when he has a rare skill. To be independent, the organization orders its employees to share the knowledge and even to feed the know-how system.
