Organisations may, due to environmental conditions, not have the perfect boundary and have what could be viewed as an anomaly. The loose end of an organisation. The space that does not fit in a neat design.
The non-standard border needed as an interface with a special supplier.
The space that would make a natural fit, but that is occupied by a competitor
An essential node of knowledge that does not fit in the streamlined process.
A long standing commitment to provide support in a area that proves to be more of an appendix, than an integral part of the whole.
Examples of loose ends.
Anomalies or sources for innovation? To be smoothed out or cherished?
