This week we have the good fortune to have a chat moderated by @Sysparatem (the inimitable Mike Parker) on the topic of innovation across organizational boundaries. Here's his framing for your consideration...

Social Media is creating a massive increase in variety resulting in a great increase in complexity at the organizational perimeter. This complexity is softening,  even dissolving the identifiable boundaries between 'inside' and 'outside'.

A few weeks ago, during the chat moderated by Pam Roes on the topic of the potential for the Sales function to impact and drive innovation in the enterprise, a number of tangential topics were offered. One of the more intriguing ones was the topic of innovation in finance.
