Running a business is fundamentally a problem-solving continuum. Global workforces absolutely should become more open-minded, informative, and fluent in a variety of business dialects and conversations.

Organizations arise when the scale of the interrelations, interactions, or inter-relational interactions brings the new cycle of business growth and the next level of organizational maturity. 

To expand the business horizon and explore emerging opportunities, it is strategically imperative that people are willing to seek out help, new knowledge, break down silos, manage the boundary between the organization and the external world, harness cross-functional communication, cross-disciplinary interactions, with the ultimate goal to push human societies forward innovatively.

It has to allow ideas to flow smoothly across the boundary for capturing the big picture and harmonizing the multitude of viewpoints:
Organizations are often fluid and dynamic, the boundary is not for dividing, but permeable to enable information, ideas, and knowledge flow frictionlessly. It is important to develop an open atmosphere with effective and candid communication, encourage idea-sharing, and look for its emergent properties which help to deal with future possibilities, fortify cross-functional coordination based on information, expertise, and responsibility.

As the organization has been expanded, with an ever-evolving landscape, organizational boundaries is a very broad term that encompasses all sorts of things, strict or fluid. Cross-boundary communication broadens perspectives, encompass of transformative changes, enhances holistic problem-solving. Boundaries can be good, bad, or indifferent depending on the application; this is space for learning, exploring opportunities to examine collective thoughts, beliefs and actions, to experience what it is like to agree to disagree and still remain engaged. Communication is the tool to solve problems; consistent, clear communication between all stakeholders is the key to harmonize business relationships and improve management effectiveness.

It takes team coordination, with the right amount and type of effort applied strategically with good timing, to dribble your way to achieving ultimate goals: Organizational management shouldn’t lose sight of the long-term or “big picture"; but take balanced efforts, align people and resources on achieving either strategic or tactical goals effectively. The goal-driven business management improves business efficiency, quality, agility, autonomy, address in process design, well aligns talent with the process, to achieve the defined goals cohesively.

The truth is that enterprise is a complex entity that needs to be perceived through a varied lens, needs to simplify, and optimize the key processes to reduce waste. The focus is to manage and organize work, address the problem that has been presented to it. The business management needs to clarify why to change; when change is called for, how to decide what to change, and who will get involved. It requires people who can manage to organize. It is all about taking responsibility. Leadership effectiveness, team competency, process coherence,etc, are all-important to accelerate performance.

It’s important to develop a series of next practices to amplify innovation effects with the goal to improve organizational competency: Every organization should strive to explore the "best practices" throughout their organization. These practices might be different across organizations, across divisions, and affiliates within an organization and can change over time. If the best practice you want to adopt is to be implemented in the same context, it could work. If the context is different, it is worth understanding how that difference could impact business results, and how to customize business initiatives for producing desired outcomes. With effective tools or methodologies, the best practice can be used wisely and with the expertise to really add value;

Every organization should strive to explore the "best practices" for innovation throughout their organization. The problem with best practices is that sometimes it stifles innovation, works against creating competitive advantage and creates the illusion of continuous improvement. Innovation leaders should keep developing the next practices, start with the innovation initiative, fund it, listen to some more, develop their next wave of innovation personas - savvy technologists, interdisciplinary experts, change agents, assume responsibility for their advocacy, and improve organizational innovation competency.

Due to the abundance of information, fast pace of changes, opportunities and risks are inherent in every venture of the business. Running a business is fundamentally a problem-solving continuum. Global workforces absolutely should become more open-minded, informative, and fluent in a variety of business dialects and conversations. The journey of business transformation is the full-scale changes in the way business is conducted so that it’s a multidimensional planning, interdisciplinary approach and a multifaceted orchestration.
