What if management were an art?

Business on November 26th, 2013

The myth of scientific management has all but disappeared, yet the industrial world continues to overvalue methods that have been standardized from outside the business environment, at the expense of creative solutions developed within companies themselves. Isn't it time to change the approach? Michel Berry, founder of the Paris School of Management, has long cultivated an attention to the singularity of situations. But how does one share the intelligence hidden in things singular? How should one train, transmit knowledge and exchange views? Envisioning management as an art overcomes these contradictions.
Le mythe du management scientifique a disparu, mais le monde industriel continue à survaloriser les méthodes standardisées venues de l'extérieur, au détriment des solutions souvent inventives développées à l'intérieur des entreprises. N'est-il pas temps de changer d'approche ? Michel Berry, fondateur de l'Ecole de Paris du management, cultive depuis longtemps une attention à la singularité des situations. Mais comment partager l'intelligence du singulier ? Comment former, transmettre, échanger ? Envisager le management comme un art permet de dépasser ces contradictions.
