Topic : 
  Artistic Interventions in Organizations
Author :

Place :

An interesting phenomenon that has come to the fore in recent years in the search for new ways of seeing and doing things in organizations are artistic interventions—when people, practices, or products from the world of the arts enter the world of (non-art-based-) organizations. Stimulating employees to engage with the arts at their workplace can be seen as a potential trigger for or enabler of organizational learning. The confrontation between different perspectives, behaviours, and values from these two “worlds” can generate newness by challenging underlying assumptions and irritating routines in an organizational culture, thereby opening spaces of possibility.

Topic : 
  What Managers Can Learn From Improvisers?
Author : 
  Eric W. Stein, Ph.D. – Penn State University - United States
Place : 
  ICN Business School
Content : 
 

This presentation explored the concept of improvisation as a means for understand real-time dynamic decision making (RTDDM). The contexts for RTDDM and those in which people improvise are remarkably similar according to several parameters. The framework illustrates how seemingly diverse contexts such as emergency management and jazz performance are related. The presentation provides a rich definition of improvisation and a typology of different improvisational contexts based on the degree of structure of the problem space and the magnitude of consequences of outcomes. Time permitting, the presentation will discuss the antecedents of improvisation, degrees of improvisation, the elements for individual and team improvisation, and effective improvisation. The conclusion is that knowledge of improvisation can help managers make more effective decisions in high velocity contexts and utilize their inherent creative strengths as they lead and manage.

  Art & Entreprise… vers une connivence fructueuse :
pourquoi et surtout comment ?
Author : 
  Hélène Mugnier
Place : 
  ICN Business School
Content : 
 

On imagine plus volontiers l'artiste en créateur solitaire et affranchi des contingences matérielles qu'en acteur économique et créateur de richesse collective. Le mythe de l'Artiste romantique occulte pourtant une histoire bien différente, celle des ateliers d'artistes, entrepreneurs à part entière ...

  La méthodologie transdisciplinaire comme fondement d’une épistémologie de l’incertitude

Content : 
 

La triple révolution qui a traversé le 20e siècle - la révolution quantique, la révolution biologique et la révolution informatique - a changé en profondeur notre vision de la réalité. Dans cette conférence, je fais mienne l'affirmation de Wolfgang Pauli, Prix Nobel de Physique et un des fondateurs de la mécanique quantique: " […] la formulation d'une nouvelle idée de réalité est la tâche la plus importante et la plus ardue de notre temps." Le concept crucial de la nouvelle vision du monde est celle de « niveaux de réalité ».

  L'art et la culture comme source d'innovation écologique et sociale
Author : 
  Jeanne Bloch
Place : 
  ICN Business School
Content : 
 

Artistic creation and innovation methodologies are very similar. Indeed, there’s a long tradition of art and science cooperation. These partnerships produced (sometimes renowned) works presented within the cultural arena (museums, theaters…) but rarely applied to “real life”. The art and cultural sectors have specific know-how, which bring valuable assets to innovation processes, especially in the field of sustainability and climate change innovation: they add a human dimension as well as an understanding of complexity and lateral thinking ...
