What it means to manage Travel through the drifts and reinventions of contemporary business.
Discutants : Charlotte Demonsant (MINES ParisTech), Cédric Poivret (Université Gustave Eiffel)
Can we build a company, a state or a sustainable democracy without knowing what (good) management means? In the cover illustration, two pencils draw together a shared future: this is, at least, what managing should mean. But 'good management' has a history, revealing the doctrines, oversights and movements of the time. These are the ones I explore in my Le Monde columns, collected here. And there has been no shortage of shocks: a global banking crisis, the rise of Apple mania, the pitfalls of Uberisation, the Volkswagen and Boeing scandals, the Rana Plaza tragedy, the climate emergency, and... a pandemic that has plunged experts and politicians into the unknown. Research has responded with a new legal concept of responsible business and by demonstrating the importance of collective creation at work. Managing well has thus taken the form of a double emancipatory challenge for us: strengthening our capacity for collective innovation while better assuming our responsibilities and the necessary solidarity in the face of threats to the world and to life. This book proposes a journey into this future that is already here.
