The idea of the organisational border as a border consisting of connections


The border as separator exists only by the experience of that dividing force. People experience it every time, individual by individual. And it is only through some kind of connection, no matter how short or minute, that one can experience the border. If there is no connection, the border remains unnoticed. Only in the interaction one can experience the difference.

The seller and the buyer. The doctor and the patient. The question and the answer. The demand and the supply. The hunger and the food. The curiosity and the knowledge. The cold and the cloth. The player and the audience. The billboard and the passer-by.

The great paradox of the border of connections. And a challenge for all involved in shaping an organisation.
