Presentation


The Chair in Change – Anticipation – Innovation originated in the recognition of a large body of facts and perceptions centring on this theme and on the practices of companies in this area, arising as much from managerial experience as from academic studies.

Although economic mutation has seldom been openly discussed over the last decade, today it prompts much valuable consideration, at both national and European levels, and the close working relationship between the professional and academic worlds has proved particularly fruitful on this topic. Furthermore, analyses of the topic in recent years have witnessed a major qualitative development:

  • The perception of change is now appreciated in a more global context, and rests on a lively appreciation of organisational development and on a proactive engagement in employment and skills.
  • Understanding of how the various participants are involved has developed considerably, moving from the idea of management centred on a company’s directors, to one of multi-participant management (unions, local authorities, the state, etc., have all seen their roles very much changed).
  • Possibilities for dialogue and compromise have been formalised, made stronger and more sophisticated, and have resulted in numerous agreements and protocols.


The aim, as a consequences of the Chair's activities in its different guises (permanent, organised seminars, further research, the writing of monographs, etc.), is to bring together the various elements that bear witness to these transformations in order to draw from them a formal understanding that may lead to innovatory solutions built on new modes of social management.

The Chair takes the form of a working group with a permanent core made up of the founding firms (the Partner Companies). Thus there is an academic and managerial structure for the consideration, discussion and production of a body of knowledge.

Besides the distinction that is naturally conveyed by supporting a world-famous institution, the Sorbonne, the Partner Companies can look forward to the following returns:

  • greater visibility in the socio-economic world
  • stronger influence in the world of political decision-makin
  • a positive image in civil society at large
  • direct, privileged access to a unique skill resource
  • direct access to Executive Managers and students trained by the IAE de Paris in all areas of management (governance, finance, control and audit, human resources, marketing etc.).


Anticipated benefits for the IAE de Paris and GREGOR include:
a higher profile in the world of business;
ease of access to privileged areas of study for teacher/researchers;
additional finance for conducting collaborative research work in pursuit of its strategic aims.

The Michelin company was created at Clermont Ferrand in 1889. Its first founder-directors were Edouard Michelin and his brother André.
Originally the Michelin business, managed by their father, Jules Michelin, sold only one product, a bicycle brake block.
In 1891 the two brothers filed a patent: they had the idea for a removable tyre, with “an inflatable ring for velocipedes and other vehicles”.
Between 1894 and 1895 they developed highly successful car tyres. From that time on the Michelin company expanded not only into various types of tyres (from tyres for utility vehicles to tyres for agricultural machinery), but also right across the world (responding to “the ever-growing demands of the march of the pneumatic tyre”).
This French business, managed mainly from father to son, represents a true model of international success.
