Most typically, hybrids are seen as organisational entities with a distinctive border separating them from their environments, but it is equally possible to see collective entities of hybrids as comprising industries or organisational fields. We move beyond hybridity as hybrid organisations.

To us, the seemingly straightforward view of hybridity as organisations is deceptive, as the organisation-based view cannot take into account the nature of multiple hybrid arrangements in societies.
