The border or the connections as what defines an organisation in its environment?


The border separates the inside from the outside and defines the organisation as such. At the same time a border has no relevance when there is no interaction over it, in whatever form. Borders without interaction are nonexistent as an object of study or design.

That interaction implies also a kind of connections between the actors.

Taking this idea a little further, you could argue that it are the networked connections that make up the organisation. An organisation defined by a commonality in the nature of the connections instead of by an enclosing borderline.
