  • This BLOG has a double purpose. It aims to contribute to the discussion and development of the academic field that could be situated in between complexity theory, knowledge management, innovation and learning; in summary a more holistic and systemic approach to management. As such it reflects the activities that take place in the Euromed transversal research track on this subject. The Home Page and the Reading host this contribution. In the News and Discussion sections, this BLOG is used to animate courses in the area of “Complexity and the Networked Economy”, "Knowledge Management and Learning" and "A quantum interpreation of business".

I totaly agree with the wish of making knowlegde more fluid, in movement according to present events and chosen by our own. Yet, I want to enlighten the forgotten fact that this “new” way of learning should have a common basis and point of reference in order to make people understand each other (as for a mere instance: the langage).

Today, the School reform is an example of the drifts of the system: the government want children to master the basics such as reading, calculating, and having some notions in english and computer science. Indeed, there were many changes in the School program and due to this, knowledge has dispersed. As a result: there is a kind of global knowledge in each generation but now, basics are missing…I think this missing stands in the way of progress (a tree needs his roots to grow).

I am not defending a “static knowledge” but I believe that the learning process must begin with common references. Otherwise, why should a student of a business school have to learn finance (what is dislike) instead of learning Human resources (what he want to do in the future)?

Finally I think that one wins wisdom in long-term making a confrontation between a received- knowledge (what one has to learn), a wanted-knowledge (what one chooses to learn), and a living-knowledge (what one has learn according to his experiences) and making a personal synthesis of this.
