Crossing boundaries stories

The stories that people tell me demonstrate engagement across boundaries: preparing, using the environment, sharing, learning, and hindrances.

  • Knowing where the political undercurrents are to avoid,
  • Getting introduced to people so they're ready for you,
  • Assessing people
  • Listening to people
  • Finding advantages in what is in the environment, and sometimes the problems
Sharing crossing and across the boundaries
  • Sharing knowledge and time, sharing abilities and skills - may involve for example piggybacking on others interviews to save an interviewee time
  • Aligning plans is other sharing - let's use the same map as we cross - it's no good one party aiming for downstream whilst the other is aiming upstream
  • Adapting to each other's approaches
  • Gaining new understanding of each others world.
  • Recognising missed opportunities.
  • Lack of expertise
  • Challenges
  • Time wasting
  • Disputed ownership
