Encadrer, un métier impossible?

Livre de chevet autant que boussole pour gros temps, cet ouvrage affronte et dénoue tout ce qui rend si insaisissables les contours et le contenu concret de l'activité d'encadrement.
Difficile en effet d'y voir clair, d'autant que los angeles succession des « modes managériales » brouille les cartes : los angeles plupart des ouvrages prétendument orientés vers les pratiques et los angeles recherche d'efficacité s'éloignent gaillardement de los angeles réalité du terrain, par idéologie ou merchandising d'un énième « notion » vendeur. ..
Rien de plus salubre et instructif donc que cette plongée dans l'univers de l'encadrement en actes. Fruit de vingt années d'enquêtes, ce livre aussi rigoureux que plaisant à lire dégage les grands déterminants d'un métier pas tout à fait comme les autres, mais dont los angeles compréhension contribue à éclairer tous les autres.
Prenant le contre pied des discours fatalistes (on ne peut rien changer, soyons du côté des plus forts et de los angeles mise en oeuvre du « nouveau administration ») ou rageurs (tous unis contre, et vivement que tout cela casse ! ), ce livre s'inscrit dans l. a. point of view d'une éthique de l. a. responsabilité personnelle.

Frederik Mispelblom Beyer est professeur de sociologie à l'université d'Evry, chercheur au Centre Pierre Naville.

Entre le marteau et l'écume. Encadrer c'est ferrailler. Encadrer : c'est se « débrouiller » entre l. a. pression d'en « haut » et celle d'en « bas ». Au coeur des batailles d'orientations. Encadrer : c'est tenter de dire ce qu'on fait et où l'on va. Encadrer : c'est tenter d'unifier les orientations du travail. Encadrer : c'est tenter d'élaborer des compromis productifs. Des actes de parole aux paroles en actes. Encadrer : c'est mettre des orientations dans des cadres opérationnels. end générale : un métier very unlikely ?

In evidence to this commitment to becoming a curator of objects and the need for taxonomies, 1 Infinite Loop (the address of Apple headquarters) had a devotion to design that is broadly considered to be the biggest corporate value at Apple under Jobs’ leadership. The Apple design team relentlessly developed, and continues to develop, objects that continually refine the interface between man and machine. They created a deep language and thesaurus of names for the objects they created. Some of these named objects made it to market with the design thesaurus delivering a product called iPad.

Today’s book is much like the first book printed hundreds of years ago—timeless. With new book smells, the smudge of graphite from the pencil, and the scent of the highlighter, you are surrounded with objects that make the reading of a book, even this book, something more. The book introduces objects into our learning, and objects introduce ritual. Try as they might, computer engineers cannot reproduce the hard “click” and haptic feedback (sense of touch) once provided by an IBM Selectric II, let alone the noisy chatter of the typewriters, like those made by Remington or Hermes.
