I recently wrote about agile processes in the F1 industry and the benefits and by-products, that this can bring for standard, and perhaps even mundane processes. After publishing it I shared it with a German friend of mine who hates changing his tyres twice a year. After reading the article he asked, "through agile process, would it be possible in the future to go a drive-thru garage to get tyres for road cars changed in less than five minutes?". He also asked whether an entirely new sector would emerge.
I couldn’t answer that question but it was a very interesting idea and a great analogy on what may theoretically be possible through embracing agile working processes.
