39th EGOS Colloquium - Organizing for the good life between legacy and imagination


American pragmatism is at the heart of my research. The discovery I made of Mary Parker Follett several years ago quickly convinced me to join the pragmatist research philosophy, because pragmatism provides an ethical basis to guide the ways in which we can develop together (Brinkmann, 2017). Then my meeting with Philippe Lorino confirmed it to me by providing concrete answers to my questions. Being in the second year of a thesis in management, I have already decided to work on a thesis by articles. You will see in this document that the structure of my thesis is already defined and that I have also already collected consistent data and writing a first article about “velocity” in project management. As Simpson & den Hond (2022) argue by saying that pragmatism is very relevant in changing environments, I for my part also found that the pragmatic approach that I developed allowed me to make a very interesting. It allowed me to put the notion of “consideration” at the heart of my study –“consideration” not to be confused with recognition. It was by being immersed in an audit firm that I was able to observe its management system to identify the flaws that push employees to leave and make it difficult to recruit talent. It was by developing a pragmatist approach in my analysis that I realized that the components of the management system in place did not form a balanced whole in terms of “consideration”. Today, I need to share my field experience with other pragmatist researchers to explore the potential of pragmatism as a practical philosophy within the components of a management system. I want to refine my understanding of the contingency and fallibility of knowledge and the continuous learning of human action. I am therefore very interested in collectively experimenting with exercises to develop awareness of our senses, movements, interventions, thoughts, ideas, actions... to be consciously part of worlds on-the-move (Simpson & Revsbæk, 2022).
