Management methods of companies have evolved significantly in recent years due to digital transformation. In this context, this book aims to define the contours of a new model of responsible corporate governance. Three main questions are addressed: How can we reshape managerial practices in the face of new, more digital and virtual ways of working? How can we move away from the dominance of the shareholder model to define a more balanced and sustainable governance model? And what can be the founding values of a new, more humane management model?
This book, edited by Benoit Raveleau, a researcher in the “Ethics and Governance of Business and Institutions” team at UCO Angers, offers a cross-sectional perspective from French-speaking researchers on the topic of management in a digitalized world of work.
In collaboration with Professor Jean-Claude Coallier (University of Sherbrooke), we contributed a chapter to this book dedicated to the key role of the manager in the cultural transformation accompanying the digitalization of companies. Drawing from action research conducted in a Canadian banking institution undergoing digitalization, we discuss how and why managers can facilitate the convergence of technology and human aspects.
We identified three roles that managers could play in these types of organizational transformations:
Each of these roles is developed and illustrated in the book, which you can find via the following reference:
