Have you ever seen a flock(serb) of birds flying together, going from one country to another and from one continent to another. They fly in harmony and change directions swiftly in a beautiful scene. There must be only one commander to guide them. They follow his guidance because they trust him! You'll never see each one flying in a seperate direction and collide with others. They always manage to arrive to their correct destination.
Have you ever seen a herd of penguins together? moving from one place to another in thousands and thousands. They also walk in order and patience with their slow short steps untill they arrive to where they wanted. They don't fight, or argue whether to go left or right. They get things done.
Fish also immigrate from rivers to the ocean or vice versa, they never get lost. So you see: birds, animals, fish, insects... all living things are naturally organized and do not need rules to follow, cause the rules are in their nature!
Now, finally, look at humans :) No need to compare but it's obvious. We need laws, rules, then fines and punishments, shouting and convincing to follow the rules! We need CMMI, ISO, QA,......
We need others tell us what to do to make things work. We need processes procedures, templates and endless workflows. Our world is full of words like capability, availability, accuracy, maturity....and endless y's and we still don't do things right or on time!
