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 : l. a. plupart des ouvrages prétendument orientés vers les pratiques et l. a. recherche d'efficacité s'éloignent gaillardement de los angeles réalité du terrain, par idéologie ou promoting d'un énième « proposal » 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 l. a. 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.

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 most unlikely ?

Sample text

I will do so because I understand this to be offering a much more radically social understanding of power relating as well as a much more dynamic and generative concept of paradox at the center of the creation and recreation of values. I will explore the theory of complex responsive processes as a foil to the theories considered above because it seems to me to be offering an understanding of the way that humans interrelate that is based neither in metaphysics, nor in an open systems conception of the balancing of needs and priorities as homeostasis, nor yet in a primeval and violent struggle between one narrative and another.

This had resulted in a three-month delay the previous autumn. Second, in insisting that NGO B was light on expertise, staff from Donor A had persuaded NGO B to appoint two senior advisers, one on poverty, equity and gender, and the other on governance. Adviser posts are very much a civil service creation. They have no line management responsibility as such but are deemed to be senior posts, their purpose being to produce policy from which good development practice is supposed to flow. Not only did the two new senior posts create conflict within NGO B about what their purpose was and how they fitted into the hierarchy, but they also contributed to overheads, about which Donor A was now beginning to complain.

Because she is so busy with three big thematic briefs and because, partly in recognition of this, Donor A contracts out the day to day management of projects to third parties, such as NGO B, or even to myself as a consultant, she is removed from direct contact with the contingent nature of messy development work in context. For nearly nine months she had not visited the field, had not had seen with her own eyes, heard with her own ears, the difficulties of what was being attempted. In the absence of direct experience, all that she had to fall back on were the log frame and the policy documents.
