Carnet de voyage : regards croisés sur les makers et l’entrepreneuriat au Sénégal

Carnet de voyage : regards croisés sur les makers et l’entrepreneuriat au Sénégal

By Julie Fabbri, EM Lyon; Amadou Lô, Toulouse Business School ; Christian Gnekpe, Toulouse Business School ; Pauline Fatien Diochon, SKEMA Business School et Thibault Daudigeos, Grenoble École de Management (GEM)

Dans le cadre de la 28ᵉ conférence annuelle organisée par l’association internationale de management stratégique francophone (#AIMS2019) à Dakar (Sénégal) du 11 au 14 juin 2019, cinq enseignants-chercheurs résidant en France croisent leurs ressentis. L’organisation de cette édition en Afrique est l’occasion de poser la question de la signification et de l’adaptation de l’entrepreneuriat, et plus largement du management africain/en Afrique. Retours sur trois journées riches en réflexions et émotions au pays de l’hospitalité et de la débrouille.

Location: Université Paris Dauphine - Place du Maréchal de Lattre de Tassigny, 75016 Paris – Meeting at the entrance hall of the university main building.

 

Once upon a Walk

In 2016, we began a collective adventure about a collaborative learning expedition we called OWEE (for "Open Walked Event-Based Experimentations"). Since then, we organized 23 OWEEs, wrote a White Paper and started a research project focused on OWEE. This has already produced paper conferences (at LAEMOS, EGOS, AOM, OAP...) and we are now shifting to the stage of writing collaboratively academic articles about these experimentations.

 

The objectives of the workshop

On June 3-5 2019 (Monday to Wednesday) we will organize at Dauphine a collaborative writing workshop about the potential of OWEE learning

« Apprendre au bout de ma rue… en 2019 », l’évènement d’une nouvelle ère!

« Apprendre au bout de ma rue… en 2019 », l’évènement d’une nouvelle ère!

L’apprentissage est un débat récurrent au sein de la société, comme en témoignent le nombre d’écoles alternatives, de rapports d’échecs scolaires[1]et de réformes de l’éducation nationale par chaque nouveau ministre[2]. C’est aussi un thème qui émerge des pratiques et des espaces de coworking[3]. En effet, le coworking est une question de communauté (co) et de travail (working) et cela inclut de l’apprentissage social. Et quand une communauté de travail décide d’apprendre ensemble sur le thème « Apprendre au bout de ma rue… en 2019 ! », on en tire un événement génial !!

Collaborative Ethnography: Welcoming the Passenger

Collaborative Ethnography: Welcoming the Passenger

By François-Xavier de Vaujany, PSL, Université Paris-Dauphine

Ethnography, auto-ethnography and collaborative ethnography are more and more parts of my research and teaching practices. Open Walked Event-Based Experimentations (OWEE), these collaborative learning expeditions experimented since 2016, have been an opportunity for me to explore further the collaborative side of ethnography with co-produced articles, shared log books and collaborative use of social media.

By means of a movie I use for some of my teachings, the Passenger  directed in 1975 by Michelangelo Antonioni, I would like to come back here to three key issues about collaborative ethnography: “reversibility” of the conversation, “silence” and “depth” (more than “perspective”). Those are topics which particularly resonate with the work of the philosopher Maurice Merleau-Ponty and the writer, poet and pioneering aviator Antoine de Saint-Exupéry.

Collaborative ethnography is not about ‘applying’ a research protocol. Sometimes, the use of logbooks in the context of ethnography

Overview of RGCS activites (2014-2018): studying and experimenting collaborative practices

Overview of RGCS activites (2014-2018): studying and experimenting collaborative practices

Our network has first been a working group (NETC) set up in October 2014. It has then be a network gathering researchers, entrepreneurs and activists interested in new ways of working (e.g. collaborative work and collaborative spaces) and exploring new ways of working for academics-practitioners collaborations from 2015. What did we do since the beginning of this adventure? It is time to take stock of our activities.

These years have been opportunities for numerous experimentations, attempts, failures, surprises, a lot of bricolages and improvisations. We did our best to make things happen. Most of all, we are proud of what we did or tried to do.

Our key accomplishments and contributions could be summarized the following way:

What could be the next steps? What do we want for the next years? Difficult to say. As we like to repeat, let's surprise ourselves...

Representativeness, Legitimacy & Democracy: Towards a New Politics of Organizing?

Representativeness, Legitimacy & Democracy: Towards a New Politics of Organizing?

The 3rd OOSE workshop at EGOS conference will take place in Edinburgh on July, 3rd 2019 (7.30 PM).

For long, Platon, Condorcet, Arrow have imagined what democracy and democratic organizing could be. The issue of the transitivity of preferences and the right democratic mediations have always been at the heart of the political debate. But social media, new kind of social movements, globalization, all make their view partly obsolescent. None of the founding figures of democratic thoughts ever imagined that a crowd, whatever its diversity of opinions, heterogeneity of physical and temporal presence, could become a mass and perform something political. All this raises new questions for researchers interested in organizing processes. Let’s talk about it!

RGCS opens a chapter in Washington!

RGCS opens a chapter in Washington!

By Serge da Motta Veiga

The Greater Washington (or Capital) region has a population in excess of 6 million people with a diversifying business presence and a gradually shrinking federal government presence. Five counties across the region are among the top ten counties in the country for median household income. The region is also well represented among the most educated residents across the country. There has been good and steady growth across Greater Washington in the last decade, with the District of Columbia increasing from approximately 550,000 people in the early 2000s to over 700,000 residents today.

Surprisingly, although it is the capital of the county, there are many “sectors” other than the federal government that make up the business life of this region. The leading hotel companies in the world are based in Greater Washington – Hilton, Marriott, Choice, Ritz, Host and other ones are headquartered in and around

Du collaboratif à l’université : les académiques doivent-ils devenir des « makers » ?

Du collaboratif à l’université : les académiques doivent-ils devenir des « makers » ?

By François-Xavier de Vaujany, Professeur, PSL-Université Paris-Dauphine (DRM), Université Paris Dauphine

Avec l’économie collaborative et l’économie du partage, le capitalisme est en train de connaître une mutation profonde. Plus que jamais, on entreprend, on expérimente, on bricole ensemble, on co-produit, on co-créé de la valeur pour le plus grand nombre, alimentant par-là même de nouvelles pratiques de travail.

Comment nos universités vivent-elles ce retournement ? Deviennent-elles plus collaboratives et ancrées dans le « faire » ? Faut-il les faire entrer de plain-pied dans ce « nouveau » monde ? A la fin du clivage entre producteurs et clients, salariés et entrepreneurs, faut-il également ajouter celui entre « sachant » et « apprenant » ?

Les universités : des communautés collaboratives très anciennes

Pour commencer, j’aimerais rappeler que le fonctionnement en communautés, l’horizontalité (évaluation par les « pairs ») et la préoccupation pour le développement d’un savoir « bien … Read more
