Quitter le cadre universitaire invite les étudiants à changer de posture (ici, des élèves de Paris-Dauphine dans les locaux de Startway).

En octobre 2018, j’ai eu l’opportunité d’initier à Paris-Dauphine un cours de master sur les transformations du travail à l’ère du digital. Il s’agissait de comprendre les liens entre évolutions du travail et nouvelles formes d’organisation et de management. Dans l’esprit, cet enseignement était aussi l’occasion d’essayer de lier des pratiques souvent séparées (pédagogie et recherche). Les débats, le faire et l’analyse s’entremêlaient avec des séances hors les murs. Une partie des heures devait ainsi se passer sur le terrain, dans ces lieux où se construit l’objet même du cours : espaces de coworking, labs d’entreprise, makerspaces, hackerspaces, associations militantes, coopératives…

Au-delà de ce décloisonnement spatial, l’idée était aussi que les étudiants se voient comme des participants au

Call for papers – First RGCS Symposium 2016

Call for papers – First RGCS Symposium 2016

We are pleased to announce the first international symposium of the RGCS network:

 

 Friday, 16th December, 9:00 – 20:00 (9PM – 8PM) in Paris

  Work and workplace transformations:

The new communities of makers and entrepreneurs in the city

 

 Call for papers First RGCS symposium

  1. Topics of the symposium

 

This first international symposium will be a twofold opportunity.

Firstly, it aims at gathering academics and practitioners interested in work and workplace transformations, in particular at the level of collaborative communities and social movements (coworkers, hackers, makers, fab labers…) embodying and conveying them. The key topics discussed will be: the relationship between collaborative communities and work transformations as well as new collaborative spaces, the nature of their social movement, the new business models behind them, public policies and their impact on the collaborative dynamic, clusters and social hubs and their relationship with collaborative spaces, innovation and new innovative practices grounded … Read more

Coworking, immobilier et services partagés :  un nouveau levier pour les politiques de la ville ?

Coworking, immobilier et services partagés : un nouveau levier pour les politiques de la ville ?

La crise a fait son œuvre. Dans de nombreuses capitales occidentales, l’immobilier de bureau traverse une (relative) période de crise. Les immeubles de bureaux se louent ou se vendent moins bien. Surtout, les marges des grands constructeurs ou opérateurs de l’immobilier s’érodent de plus en plus.

Comme en témoigne la stratégie actuelle de Bouygues Immobilier* ou de Nexity (avec Blue Office), le développement de services partagés semble alors incarner un certain renouveau. On met en place le partage de véhicules pour un même immeuble ou bloc immobilier. On partage même parfois à plusieurs sa place de parking. Le constructeur devient alors autant un assembleur d’éléments immobilier et mobilier que de services (externalisés la plupart du temps vers de jeunes pousses). Les entités externes qui aident à faire la création de valeur sont autant des sociétés de service installées que de jeunes entreprises dynamiques… A nouveau, les Cathédrales montrent … Read more

The collaborative economy and Robin Hood: Political experimentations without political visions?

The collaborative economy and Robin Hood: Political experimentations without political visions?

The collaborative economy is at the heart of contemporary capitalism. It relies massively on digital infrastructures and their necessary standards.

For some managers, it is the ideal setting for the experimentation of disruptive business models and global strategies. It enables rapid breakthrough for some young startups which become standards themselves in amazing time spans.

Beyond the sphere of management, global digital infrastructures enable disruptive political innovations for communities and social movements. The how and the why of these new kinds of social and political breakthroughs is the subject of numerous studies, e.g. in the field of management and organization studies, sociology, media studies or economics. More than ever, activism has become a connected exercise.

But beyond such emergent attempts, it seems that some major political ideas are tested at a global scale. Friedrich Hayek’s invitation to introduce multiple and competing currencies in the same national context have started. Numerous virtual … Read more

Work transformations and the teaching of management: towards the end of business schools (as they are?)

Work transformations and the teaching of management: towards the end of business schools (as they are?)

Academics in the area of management are often invited to draw managerial implications about their research. This is often part of a section called “managerial implications” or “implications for practice” (in scientific journals). Most of the time, this results in extremely expected and unsurprising things. Beyond that, I have always found strange to put myself in the shoes of a manager… who will never read my article.

Research about work and workplace transformations could be a unique opportunity to make a key managerial contribution: rethinking management teaching.

What is the focus of most teachings today? I would say structures, tools, techniques, procedures and projects.

What is already a key lesson of most research about work and workplace transformations, the so-called end of waged employment, and the generalization of entrepreneurship? The new line necessary to follow the deep dynamic of capitalism, society and management is more and more grounded into practices … Read more

Developping new collaborative policies in partnership with collaborative spaces

Developping new collaborative policies in partnership with collaborative spaces

Coworking spaces, fab labs, maker spaces, media labs… What does it mean, what does it bring?

Almost one year since RGCS started.

What about the novely of the phenomenon? Are we entering into a new world? Are we attending to the end of waged employment? Will we all become independant employers and makers in tomorrow’s society? For sure, it is too early to state such a deep, structural, change.

Will we still talk about cowworking spaces in 10 years? Will we talk about maker spaces, media labs, fab labs? Part of the vocabulary will probably disappear, and part of the trend will remain.

But my conviction is elsewhere. Today’s novelty is elesewhere.

These new collaborative spaces link tendencies which for long have been independant: public policies and management, on the one hand. Transformation of societies and transformation of work, on the other hand.

Firstly, I am convinced that the choices … Read more
