Definition: to test the boundaries, to try something new

Examples:

Our company is very conservative. Every presentation is always the same. I am going to push the envelope, and completely change the normal format.

I’m trying a new sales technique with this new customer. If it works, my boss will love me. If it fails, I will lose my job. Sure, it’s risky, but we need to try something new, to push the envelope.
