San Francisco: Jossey-Bass, 1995
Traditional management deals with the following boundaries of organizations: vertical hierarchical levels of staff; horizontal functional areas; external outreach relations; and geographic realities. To adopt a concept of boundarylessness necessary to cope with the ever-increasing rates of change, managers, in recognizing the need to go beyond traditional boundaries, need to shift paradigms in order to make the necessary adjustments in organizational structure and processes to meet the demands of a fast-moving world. The author provides tools to measure the strength of current boundaries and identifies means of eliminating the boundaries.
