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 point of view d'une éthique de l. a. responsabilité personnelle.

Des actes de parole aux paroles en actes. Encadrer : c'est mettre des orientations dans des cadres opérationnels. end générale : un métier most unlikely ?

In a turbulent, oft-changing environment, a set of comprehensive procedures will never be comprehensive enough to address every situation, and the more comprehensive they become, the more difficult they are to apply. Simple rules guide innovative, intelligent responses; comprehensive rules guide rote, routine responses. In complex, uncertain, ambiguous environments, adaptation is significantly more important than efficiency. Efficient practices are based on assumptions of predictability and control.

We are more familiar with the technology adoption curve—enthusiasts, visionaries, pragmatists, conservatives, and skeptics.
