The Dynamics and Challenges of Tetranormalization

Par Henri Savall et Véronique Zardet

The crisis has shed light on the growing disruption of economic and social activity. In order to restore stability and prosperity, citizens, consumers, workers, entrepreneurs, and institutional leaders must stress their need for new rules. Standards and norms are certainly rules, but they nonetheless have a hidden face -they are sources of counterproductive effects such as barriers to entry in the global competitive game, whether public and private, of interference practices inside organizations and territories, even of espionage...

The Qualimetrics Approach - Observing the Complexe Object

By Henri Savall and Véronique Zardet - Continuing the commitment of the Research in Management Consulting series to recapture and revisit past works as a complement to our exploration of emerging trends, innovative perspectives, and new insights into the word of management consulting, this volume is a translation and modest updating of Henri Savall and Véronique Zardet's original work on the "qualimetrics" approach, initially published in French in 2004.

Much like we have done with Savall end Zardet's other works - Mastering Hidden Costs and Socio-Economic performance (2008) and Work and People (2010)- an underlying goal is to continue to enhance our insignhts into the complexities and nuances associated with organizational life, helping to create a more comprehensive foundation for our insignhts into, work with, and intervention in organizations.

This book presents a different and challenging way of the thinking about analyzing organizations, one that draws together quantitative information, financial, analysis and qualitative insights into organizational dynamics.

Work and People - An Economic Evaluation of Job-Enrichment

The reprint of Henri Savall’s classic Work and People, originally published in French in 1974, is part of the Research in Management Consulting series’ effort to look backward as well as forward in examining trends, perspectives, and insights –especially from different countries and cultures – in the world of management consulting. Savall’s insights into the complexity of organizational life were groundbreaking, articulating the need to examine both economic and social factors as part of the same analysis, assessing technical and behavioral patterns through the lens of an integrated framework. As he has argued, there is a double-loop interaction between “the quality of functioning and economic performance,” and underestimating this socio-economic “tension” leads inevitably to reduced performance and losses, which he refers to as “hidden costs”.

Releasing the untapped potential of enterprises through socio-economic management

This book provides evidence that the link between social perfomance and economic performanceis central to the long term performance of companies and organizations.
ISEOR methods highlight the consequences of poor social performance and enable signifi cant gains in productivity. As productivity is a an essential factor in competitiveness, employer organizations want to act even more positively in this area.
Man management skills are essential to build healthy working relationships in companies and organizations. These skills permit the tools used to promote implication and communication among the personnel to be developed and adopted.
