By Frederik Mispelblom Beyer

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 : l. a. plupart des ouvrages prétendument orientés vers les pratiques et los angeles recherche d'efficacité s'éloignent gaillardement de l. a. réalité du terrain, par idéologie ou promoting 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 l. a. 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 los angeles standpoint d'une éthique de los angeles 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 los angeles 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 ?
