Boundaries Spanning

In today’s knowledge economy organizations are transforming from rigid hierarchical structures to networked structures with flows of people, information, and resources across boundaries. Ever-increasing interconnections facilitated by advances in technology have led to new forms of organizing such as cross-functional teams, virtual workgroups, and cross sector partnerships. This shift has given rise to a set of mission critical boundaries that leaders have to work across.

Boundaries exist. What really matters is how leaders collaborate to bridge these divides and transform wide-ranging talents and knowledge to deliver value. Catalyze collaboration, drive innovation, transform organizations - Boundary Spanning Leadership can turn today’s limiting borders into tomorrow’s limitless frontiers.

 

OUR PERSPECTIVE:

A decade-long program of research involving more than 50 researchers associated with the Center for Creative Leadership (CCL) has shown the nature of various boundaries: 

The 5 Boundaries of Leadership®

The researchers focused on five types of boundaries:

Vertical: Rank, class, seniority, authority, power
Horizontal: Expertise, function, peers
Stakeholder: Partners, constituencies, value chain, communities
Demographic: Gender, generation, nationality, culture, personality, ideology
Geographic: Location, region, markets
