The over-rational organization
Managerial modes come and go, pass and return, but all seem to carry the same message: the time of horizontality and organizational flexibility has arrived. The new creed in place is that of adaptation in real time. Thus, the liberated company, the 2.0 company, holacracy, and many others, are promoted in spite of the heavy logics of the pyramidal or bureaucratic forms. Do these discourses affect change? Admittedly, many examples can bear witness to the effectiveness of structures flattening; certainly, many cases may illustrate the shift towards a friendly and collaborative management. However, the diagnosis would not be complete if we failed to look at the birth of super-rational monsters who, far from refining and shrinking in size as encouraged by the lean management discourse, keep on, figuratively speaking, by putting on weight and getting regulatory rolls of fat and procedural blisters.

The uneasiness in organizations
Are the concepts of Being and Uneasiness within organizations distinct and separable? Would separating mean to be evasive regarding the treatment of uneasiness as well as that of the Being? To consider them in their unity isn’t that simple and requires to open up the barrier of knowledge. In management, through different conceptualizations, another symbolic third part reaps off what the subject of otherness is deprived of, its emancipation, its being and its future. That is Uneasiness. A certain form of fetishism structures the thinking of management in our economies, which have become a value of use and the market, around which the conventions of constraint and obligation are structured. But it is the relationship of the subject to his or her Being that establishes the transition from neurosis to suffering which leads to perversion. Desire is constantly short-circuited by the attachment of the satisfaction to the correlates of Uneasiness. Whatever the approach, however honorable, the same problem comes b ... Read more

Ethique, diversité et inclusion
 Maria Giuseppina, Bruna ; Zahir, Yanat
Adoptant un prisme interdisciplinaire, le numéro souhaite offrir « un éclairage inédit et fondé sur les comportements organisationnels » autour du rapport à l’éthique, à l’égalité (de droit, de traitement et des chances) et à l’inclusion au sein des Ecoles et des Universités. Et ce, en se focalisant sur les pratiques, qu’elles émanent d’Institutions instituantes (ici l’Etat / le marché), d’organis ...
