When we say, that commons is not a thing but a process where normative questions are negotiated and condensed in the the collective design of rules and regulation and their enacting through commoning we imply that processes have their own temporality and are unpredictable/ uncertain and highly adaptive to changing circumstances. Process-oriented approaches in "designing" collective action allow for the constant adjustment of results, procedures and rules. [ADD MORE FROM PROCESS PANEL IN GERMAN]]

Within a process-oriented regime, uncertainty is considered an inherent category, next to an understanding of the importance of documented training of peers and a work mode of trust, which makes up for the amount of voluntary engagement needed to reach the aim.

Within a product-oriented regime, that operates deterministically and claims full knowledge of all involved factors, planning procedures allocate resources ahead of time and fail in adapting to sudden changes, the social capital of its precarious workers is drained and used for the benefit of clients and surveillance mechanisms
