This paper gives a brief view of the current situation of standardized work in the automotive industry in Sweden. The paper is based on recently performed studies at several automotive actors in Sweden. Most of the present research about standardized work focuses on local premises. Therefore, this paper suggests more focus in future research on how to implement standardized work in global organizations focusing on local demands and cultural differences and similarities. © 2013 The Authors.
