Skype without installation

Hi experts,
my company policy will not allow me to install skype in my laptop (O.S. Windows 7 Enterprise).

Is it possible to use skype without installing the Skype desktop software??

if so, how? and where can I download this version?

Thank in advance!

Sorry, but, NO ... as you will need skype software to be installed to be able to use skype.

You can also use Skype on your own smart phone. That will work and is outside your company policy

We need clarification...

You cannot use skype without installing skype software...
You can use skype on non company devices once skype software has been installed.

Your question states "Skype without installation"

The only answer is NO.
As I have replied in my first post:

Portable apps leave changes on the computer which may also be against your company policy?
You will need to clarify this with your company.

See:Portable App Guidelines  
"A portable app doesn't leave files or folders behind except those automatically generated by Windows
A portable app doesn't leave registry entries behind except those automatically generated by Windows"
