The connections of the organisation consist of an vast array of elements: a short classification


There are various elements that make up the organisational border. A quick overview.

Machines: the webs, tha apps, the answering machines, self-service machines, broadcasts, the dials.

Paces: Offices, shops, plants, branches, service points, homes, stations.

Stories: bills, billboards, pitches, manuals, service calls, annual reports, intersections, explanations, songs, plays.

Actions: conversations, service calls, care, answering questions, visits, operating, serving people, repairing.

Artefacts: cars, bottles of beer, artificial hips, magazines, macs, toothpaste, downloads.


These elements often occur in combinations at the border.

I never said the work of border builders was easy.
