Configurations de pouvoir et socialisation individuelle dans un cabinet de conseil

Abstract : Based on Minzberg's work and on observer-participation, this inside study of a big consulting firm shows how the latter's internal organization has arisen out of a cleavage between an "entrepreneur" structure and a closed system. Thanks to the former, adjustments can be made to an uncertain environment (decentralization, personal relations) whereas the latter, grounded in symbolic and material resources, ensures the firm's stability. This cleavage is doubled by the norms for socializing consultants: inhouse norms and external norms borne by clients. The result is ongoing tension.
