La série Gérer & Comprendre privilégie une approche humaine de l'organisation des entreprises, grâce à des analyses qui ne fondent pas sur les seuls outils de gestion, mais empruntent aussi à la sociologie des moyens de compréhension indispensables aux responsables d'entreprises. Son fonctionnement est celui d’une revue académique à comité de lecture. Elle a été retenue par l'AERES dans son classement des revues en économie et gestion, ainsi que dans celui des revues en sociologie.

OVERLOOKED REALITIES

 

DREAMS, LAWS OR CUSTOMS? THOUGHTS ABOUT MANAGING PEOPLES

Claude Riveline

In any given country, social bonds are made up of a patriotism that is based on the idea of the Nation, of regulations that evoke the idea of the State and of local habits to which the global category of society phenomena refers. In France, it now seems as though the Nation and State have lost prestige while society phenomena have not sufficiently taken up the slack.


TRIAL BY FACT

 

SOCIOLOGY AND MANAGERIAL ACTIONS: IS A SOCIOLOGICAL APPROACH USEFUL FOR MANAGEMENT?

Erhard Friedberg

Although, for several years now, organizations have undergone repeated, in-depth reforms of development and production, most persons in charge of operations do not have adequate training for adapting their methods of action to the complex workings of human systems. In this respect, the sociology of organizations can be particularly useful by relativizing the classical managerial vision and its blind voluntarism.

 

FREEZE-FRAME: MANAGING QUALIFICATIONS IN MIDSTREAM

Jean-Marc Le Gall

Can an industry-wide collective agreement that sets up new job classifications and lays down provisions for developing qualifications help modernize the establishments where it will be applied ? An analysis of changes at the CNAV, one of the Social Security funds covered by the agreement, provides an optimistic answer but one full of nuances.


TESTIFYING

 

THE PTT FROM 1950 TO 1980

An interview with Emile Simon conducted by Odile Join-Lambert and Frédérique Pallez

The French postal system is a mixture of state-of-the-art technology and outdated Taylorism where, despite vested rights, 15 billion objects a year are conveyed with amazing reliability. The PTT used to be a model of a French-style public service. For years now, it has been prepared for social, technological and economic changes so as to bear up under the laws of the marketplace. Emile Simon, a participant in this process, testifies.

 

THREE CEOs AGAINST EXCLUSION: EMPLOYMENT, ITS MANAGEMENT AND INVESTMENTS IN PRODUCTIVITY

Francis Ginsbourger

What role can firms play in employment and the effort to put an end to exclusion ? How can actions of this sort be operationalized in everyday management ? Are company directors thus led to give up investments in productivity or even forsake the criteria for justifying such investments ? From the answers to these three questions provided by three CEOs who are committed to the struggle against exclusion, we see that the ways to manage productivity so as to favor employment and fight against exclusion are yet to be found.

OTHER TIMES, OTHER PLACES

 

MANAGEMENT AS ART: ON THE SAYING ARS SINE SCIENTIA NIHIL EST

Hervé Dumez

Could it be that, given the way management is learned, given its approach to problems and despite the scientific coating on top it, that management is more an art than a science ? In 1400, the adventures of a French expert, whose help masons working on the Milan cathedral requested, illustrate the relations still ambiguous even today between art and science.

 

THE SUBTLE GAME OF THE PRINCIPE OF SOLIDITY

Christian Morel

A product's technical and aesthetic images are intermingled. The example, among others, of Milan's cathedral is worked out to show the subtle interplay between practice and theory, art and science, in architectural design. Is that what ars sine scientia nihil est means ?


IN QUEST OF THEORIES

 

PHRONESIS: AN ALTERNATIVE TO MANAGEMENT AS A SCIENCE AND TO BUSINESS AS PURE OPPORTUNISM

Michel Villette

For Aristotle, prudence (phronesis) was not a moral virtue but an intellectual faculty, a form of knowledge distinct from both the science of eternal truths (sophia) and from the technical skills of craftsmen or sophists. This Aristotelian notion of prudence is relevant to certain currents in contemporary research, teaching and managerial practices. Is prudence pertinent as a unifying
