Quelle pertinence pour le concept de modèle d’affaires en stratégie?
Une dizaine d’années après la renaissance manifeste de l’intérêt des praticiens, puis des chercheurs, pour le concept de modèle d’affaires (business model), la question de sa pertinence au regard des concepts et des outils existants en stratégie persiste. Concept polysémique? Concept « valise »? Concept utile? Concept durable? Autant de questions qui, au-delà de la popularité du concept, nous invitent à porter un regard à la fois critique et constructif sur le modèle d’affaires dans le champ du management stratégique.  Alors que notre pratique d’enseignement de la stratégie et d’accompagnement de projets d’innovation nous amenait à questionner la pertinence du concept/outil du modèle d’affaires, il nous sembla qu’un tour de table s’imposait pour tenter de répondre aux questions soulevées. Ce tour de table s’est tenu le 8 juin 2011 lors de la XXe conférence de l’Association Internationale de Management Stratégique (AIMS) à Nantes. Ce petit ouvrage a pour but de faire partager au lecteur l’intégralité des propos échangés ce jour-là.

Cognition et vieillissement
Traitement de l’information, savoir et pensée
Une traduction de l’œuvre de J. M. Rybash, J. W. Hoyer et P.A. Roodin : Adult Cognition and Aging: Developmental Changes in Processing, Knowing and Thinking. Dans ce livre de grande envergure, les auteurs se penchent sur des études et des théories relatives aux changements cognitifs chez l’adulte et à d’autres fonctions du système cognitif. Ils mettent l’accent sur les caractéristiques cognitives de l’adulte et présentent un modèle d’encapsulation des changements cognitifs de l’adulte vieillissant, particulièrement par rapport à son aptitude à traiter l’information, le savoir, et la pensée. Ils démontrent que les adultes construisent ou sélectionnent activement, grâce à la pensée Post-formelle, des domaines de savoir qui ne déclinent pas avec l’âge. André Lemieux, Ph. D. psychologue, est professeur titulaire à l’Université du Québec à Montréal, Président-directeur général de l’Institut Universitaire du Troisième Âge de Montréal, il a été membre du Conseil d’administration de l’Association Internationale des Universités du Troisième Âge et du Conseil d’administration de l’Ordre des psychologues du Québec, conseiller spécial auprès du président de l’International Federation on Ageing et adjoint au secrétariat général de l’Association Internationale de Gérontagogie. Il est membre de l’Ordre des psychologues du Québec et de la Société française de psychologie. Sa réputation internationale l’a fait participer au colloque de I’American Association of Retired Teachers, organisé par l’UNESCO, qui réunissait 70 experts du monde pour définir les politiques du vieillissement de l’ONU pour le XXIe siècle. Conférencier recherché, il est l’auteur de plus de 45 titres d’articles ou de livres scientifiques dont plusieurs furent traduits en anglais, arabe, espagnol et russe. Il faut aussi noter qu’il a dirigé la collection Éducation des Éditions Nouvelles de 1989-2016. Il continu d’écrire sur le comportement psychologique et social des personnes âgées.

Cooperative Management
An Effective Model Adapted to Future Challenges
This book is the fruit of our work on and with cooperatives of the last 20 years. Throughout this period, we have conducted extensive research on the management of cooperatives, many using the research-action methodology, i.e., directly involving teams of managers, employees and administrators. We also wrote many cooperative management cases while sitting on different (cooperative) boards. On the theoretical level, our work has allowed us to develop three key ideas on which is based our conception of the management of cooperatives. First, a cooperative equilibrium model that aligns values and cooperative principles leading to a proper management framework better adapted for cooperatives. A second key model, developed in the late 1990s, introduces what we have called the identity malaise observed in many cooperatives. This identity malaise needs to be understood for a solution to be found. The third key model in our management approach to cooperative identifies the strategic levers leading to what we have named a new cooperative paradigm (NPC). Started more than 20 years ago, this reflection leads us today to recognize a significant competitive advantage inherent in cooperative organizations. The basic idea of this NPC is focused on finding inherent benefits embedded in the cooperative values and principles when confronted with current and future market challenges, compared to other modes of organization. Today, our vision of these challenges is fuelled by the recognition of emerging strategies namely the congruence of organization-employee values, the shift from customer orientation to engagement orientation to enhance customer loyalty, the feeling of psychological ownership as a differentiator and the democratization and value cocreation process. This book also presents several cases studies of cooperatives in different sectors (agricultural, credit union, insurance, food retail). These cases were written over the last 20 years. They illustrate the different facets and components of the three ideas (models) at the heart of this book.

Darwin’s Tea Party
Biological Knowledge, Evolution, Genetics and Human Nature
This book examines how biological knowledge has transformed the planet and reshaped humanity. Using the concept of biological knowledge, the author explores key persons, places, ideas and events that have shaped the world. He shows that while the development of biological knowledge has opened vast new vistas in our understanding of the living world and promises material abundance for some; refracted through the distorting lens of ideology, it has also contributed to great inequality and oppression. The book delves into key issues that arise from adopting a biological approach to understanding human nature, such as the assessment of human difference, the relationship of knowledge to power, the nature and role of science and religion and the value and nature of human life. Combining an engaging narrative style with scholarly rigour, this book makes an important and timely contribution to present-day issues and contemporary debates emanating from the life sciences.

Esquisse rapide
Ce livre est un livre de recettes pour les dessinateurs débutants.La majorité des gens qui ne dessine pas n’ont pas eu la chance de connaître une technique qui leur permet de construire un dessin. Savoir dessiner n’est pas différent que de suivre une recette de gâteau. Sans recette, il y a peu de chance de réussite.Dans ce livre, cinq techniques de dessin vous seront expliquées et vous permettront de réaliser les bases de tous croquis en perspective.Où est la ligne d’horizon? C’est la première notion à connaître avant de débuter un dessin. Comprendre cette ligne d’horizon et comment elle influence le dessin est l’introduction de mon livre. L’observateur, son point de vue, la hauteur de ses yeux et son angle de vision sont également des concepts importants de cette partie.Chaque objet a une forme différente et la reproduire en esquisse peut paraître ardu. Pourtant, chaque objet s’insère dans un volume cubique. Le cube, comme forme de base, est l’essence de la seconde partie du livre.La perspective frontale (1 point de fuite) et la perspective oblique (2 points de fuite) ne sont pas présentées de façon traditionnelle avec une rigueur géométrique désarmante. Mes techniques offrent beaucoup de souplesse et accélèrent grandement le processus de réalisation du dessin. Finalement, le raffinement du dessin par l’ombre et la lumière permet de mettre en valeur l’esquisse. Une image vaut mille mots et l’esquisse rapide permettra une visualisation rapide de vos idées. Le but d’une esquisse n’est pas de faire un beau dessin, mais bel et bien de produire rapidement une idée en perspective. Votre support de création deviendra le napperon du restaurant ou la feuille de gypse sur un chantier de construction. L’esquisse rapide n’est pas une finalité dans le processus créatif, elle permet au créatif d’explorer un univers fascinant en trois dimensions afin de valider une variété d’idées. Fini le temps des belles lignes droites tracées à la règle, c’est le temps pour l’esquisse rapide! Bernard Jobidon Dès l’âge de 2 ans, Bernard Jobidon a déjà une forte attirance pour le crayon de couleur. Cette passion se développe au point tel qu’il obtient un D.E.C. en Arts Plastiques au Campus Notre-Dame-de-Foy (Québec) ainsi qu’un baccalauréat à l’UQAM en design de l’environnement. Pendant 20 ans, il fait carrière en design commercial chez Lanvain Design. Depuis 2008, il est professeur au département de Design d’intérieur du Cégep Marie-Victorin où il enseigne principalement les cours d’esquisses et de perspectives.

La pratique du modèle d'affaires
Le BM (Business Model, ou Modèle d’Affaires) a-t-il vocation à changer le monde des stratèges à l’image des figures et des représentations devenues emblématiques du champ de la stratégie dont la revue Harvard Business Review fit l’inventaire dans son édition de décembre 2011 pour initier les célébrations de son 90e anniversaire ? Comment interpréter la popularité du modèle d’affaires ? Reflète-t-elle un besoin de faire une synthèse devant la multitude et la diversité des outils de la stratégie ? Nous nous sommes réunis en 2011 autour d’un premier tour de table à l’AIMS à Nantes sur le thème de « ce qu’est » le BM. Que savons-vous de « ce que fait » le BM ? Nous avions convenu, en nous quittant à Nantes, qu’un autre tour de table sur le modèle d’affaires s’imposait pour aborder cette fois le BM en pratique, en situation, en contexte d’utilisation. Que nous apprend l’utilisation de l’outil du BM ? Par les praticiens ? Les étudiants ? Que nous enseigne et comment s’enseigne le BM ? Et quels regards critiques porter sur cet outil et son enseignement ? Voici le deuxième opus de notre série d’ateliers sur le concept du BM. Ses pages rapportent l’intégralité des propos tenus le 5 juin dernier, lors de notre tour de table AIMS à Lille sur le thème de « La pratique du BM ».

Process improvement: kaizen, lean and six-sigma
These days, no organization can fully realize its mission without maintaining a constant focus on efficiency. This is precisely the objective of the process review, a fundamental and structured approach to the continuous improvement of both organizational effectiveness and efficiency. However, while the process review is widely viewed as essential, and while senior managers understand its broad principles and agree on its usefulness, for many organizations its actual implementation remains a challenge and the review itself an all too elusive mystery.  This handbook demystifies the process review by presenting and explaining its sequence and steps in practical, logical and reassuring terms. Building on a statement of objectives and recognition of the symptoms of inefficiency within the organization, the handbook provides insights, tips, tools and techniques to guide the manager through the process review. By the end of the exercise, the manager and team will benefit from documented standard procedures, clear roles and responsibilities for all stakeholders, and a robust and effective implementation plan that includes the productive and thoughtful management and monitoring of progress.   With more than 20 years’ experience as a continuous improvement specialist, Jean-Marc Legentil, MBA, has helped numerous organizations improve their performance. Earlier in his career, he worked in operations management at Johnson & Johnson, Abbott Laboratories and Carrier. He lectures at ETS, CIREM and HEC Montréal and is often invited to conferences in Canada and abroad to speak on operational strategy, Lean, Kaizen, Six Sigma and continuous improvement.

Strategic management of arts organization
Arts and cultural organizations (ACOs), like all organizations, are regularly required to make strategic decisions in order to deal with the challenges of their sector. To make the most informed decisions possible, ACO managers must have excellent knowledge of models of strategic thinking. But thinking strategically does not mean that managers should adopt a purely rationalist approach and ignore their intuition. In fact, ACO managers, who are often artists, are more inclined to follow their intuition than theoretical models that provide only a partial view of reality. The aim of this book is to encourage ACO managers to reflect on the exercise of strategic thinking. Just as artists must master the technical skills of their art in order to move the audience, ACO managers must master the methods of strategic thinking in order to feel comfortable and confident in their decision making. In this process, managers will eventually think strategically by blending a rational approach with their intuition. This way of thinking can be acquired or reinforced through the repeated application of the strategic tools presented in this book. Understanding one’s organization in terms of its environment, its competitors, its stakeholders’ expectations and its resources and competencies, while adopting the most suitable governance structure, are essential steps in a strategic process that will lead to more effective management and a better capacity to anticipate the future. The strategic decisions emerging from this process will have a greater likelihood of ensuring the long-term sustainability of the ACO. The authors’ aim is to facilitate the reflection on the strategic diagnosis for arts and cultural organizations, notably through an understanding of the internal and external environment. Governance and stakeholder issues are also taken into account. This book will help practitioners: develop a better understanding of how analytical tools can contribute to strategic management; carry out a strategic diagnosis; make strategic decisions that are consistent with the diagnosis; ensure the successful implementation of their decisions.

The Grammar Guru
Written in the form of a Socratic dialogue, the Grammar Guru is the first Grammar book written to instruct and entertain its readers – yes … entertain! Hirtle Walters, a.k.a. the Grammar Guru, is a retired linguistics professor who runs a pub-style restaurant not far from his former university campus. Louis Bonenfant is an English Studies student and aspiring English teacher who one day seeks out the Guru’s help. Through a series of weekly encounters with the Guru, Louis learns the difference between: A verb’s state and action use. The simple and progressive form as seen in sentences like I take three pills a day and I’m taking three pills a day or I like university and I’m liking university. The simple past and present perfect form as in I lost my assignment and I’ve lost my assignment. The present perfect and present perfect progressive form as in Your python has escaped and Your python has been escaping. The modals can, could, may, might, will, shall, etc. A real and an unreal condition. Rather than inundate Louis with confusing rules and lifeless examples, the Guru instructs Louis on the meaning underlying the various grammatical forms. Through their encounters, Louis comes to the realization that the Guru’s meaning-based approach to teaching grammar and jocular character makes learning it much more rewarding and even fun. Also included in the book are a series of meaning-based exercises.

The Return of the Grammar Guru
Louis and Mr. Walters are back! Presented in the form of a Socratic dialogue like its predecessor, The Return of the Grammar Guru aims to both instruct and entertain its readers through give-and-take conversations between the Grammar Guru, a retired linguistics professor who runs a pub near the university campus, and Louis, an aspiring English teacher with an insatiable thirst for grammatical knowledge and beer. Through a series of weekly encounters with the Guru, Louis learns about: The difference between the infinitive and the gerund, as in He tried to be nice to his boss and He tried being nice to his boss. The use of the article in English, which can make the difference between He admired Picasso and He admired the Picasso. The difference between Didn’t you bring any beer? and Didn’t you bring some beer? The contrast between bare noun and genitive constructions, as in Someone stole our car tires and Someone stole our car’s tires. The use of the demonstratives in There was this guy walking down the street and There was that guy walking down the street. The effect of adverb position on meaning, as illustrated by the difference between She shared her experience generously and She generously shared her experience. The subtle difference between With no job Rob would be happy and With no job would Rob be happy. Rather than overwhelm his listener with endless rules, the Guru makes grammar come to life by focusing on the meaning of the various grammatical forms. Also included in the book is a series of meaning-based exercises that allow readers to test their knowledge of the forms discussed in the book.

Workshop Management
Collective Intelligence and Internalization
It may well now be the time to look for new ways of diagnosing, planning, building team cohesion, fostering innovation and implementing changes and strategies. The classic management models have been used and reused, but they have now reached their limits, unable to keep pace with today’s corporate complexity. As more and more is required in the business environment, more is asked of your organization’s personnel. Significant numbers of your employees may be experiencing withdrawal, cynicism and a lack of motivation. Dynamic management routines and sense-making priorities are badly needed in many organizations, as they seek to overcome a crisis of jaded personnel. Now may be the time to look more seriously at workshop management. On the one side, this book presents how to achieve organizational performance and efficacy with workshops designed to bring together collective intelligence through analysis, planning, implementation challenges and more. On the other side, this new perspective builds on disruptive approaches and creativity management models. It proposes an integrated framework that allows you to design your own workshop sequence to suit the specific issues and challenges you want to address. The framework is easy to adjust; simply follow the enclosed guide to achieve the desired objectives: planning organizational change, reorganizing a team, fostering cohesion, enabling creativity, developing a vision, reframing a strategy and more. To help you attain your goals, all 50 workshops are explained in detail on technical sheets containing the workshop descriptions, underlying motives, group compositions, activity illustrations and examples, timing and leadership guidelines, expectations and objectives, etc. You can use them as-is or adapt them to your liking.
