Abstract The study presented in this paper deals with the use of 3D boundary objects in stakeholder management. The main research objective is to understand the contribution that 3D boundary objects can make to a project in terms of knowledge and stakeholder engagement. The methodology used here is of a participatory and collaborative nature, and this choice is tied to the praxeological and theoretical context of the study.
The results of the study show that 3D boundary objects facilitate the engagement of stakeholders and create knowledge in certain conditions, in particular related to the management style of the project manager, his or her experience and expertise. The praxeological and theoretical implications encompass both learning for a practitioner and the pertinence of enriching certain project management conceptualizations.
Keywords project management; knowledge; boundary objects; large scale projects; change in practices.

Savoir pour agir, Dunod, France. Cyert R. Gaglio, G. Midler, C. All of them were awarded the French Academic Palms for their extraordinary contribution to the promotion of French language and French culture. Olivier Bitz, adjoint au maire. Anne-Christine, you are an essential figure in French teaching in New England. Through your work as an instructor at the French Cultural Center in Boston and the Cambridge Center for Adult Education, you shared your teaching expertise and inspired learners of all ages in our community.
From there, you went on to lecture in French, first at Brandeis University, and now at Tufts University, where you have taught for 17 years! Throughout your teaching career, you have gone above and beyond to design new French courses and curricula. For instance, about 20 years ago, you developed an innovative teaching method which placed cinema at the heart of teaching French.
This pedagogy is unique in its use of films for class discussion, learning French and discovering French culture. And its publication prompted the creation of a series of texts for learning Spanish, German, Italian, Russian and Portuguese through film. This method of teaching is now used in around American universities!
And you have become the face of all things French at Tufts, acting as the faculty advisor for the French Society and the French Table! As an advisor to students in the French major, you help guide the next generation of students who are passionate about our language and culture, an essential work indeed!
You are well-loved within the Tufts community as an accessible faculty member. For more than 20 years you have been an active promoter of French language and culture in the United States. As a graduate of both French and American institutions, you are also a unique ambassador for both countries.
You have now made your home at the University of Massachusetts, Lowell, where you have been the Coordinator of the French Major, and have acted as the chairwoman of the World Languages and Cultures department since How do they recognize a good slide or an effective diagram?
What practical criteria do they use? To tackle these questions, we develop a pragmatist approach based on the theory of signs of Charles S. Drawing from data collected through ethnographic participant observation, our study analyzes how a team of consultants drafts a single slide intended to represent the problems of a client organization and assesses the evolving strength of the document. How did organizations comply with these new legal rules? Four in-depth case studies in two former public companies and in two private ones allow to describe and analyse the diversity of right practices and their relations with litigation.
Even if some agreements try to recognize some skills and abilities acquired through union experiences, they mainly include a new rhetoric on social partnership. Environmental policy increasingly resorts to market-based instruments in order to meet sustainability objectives. In this paper, we examine the complex ways in which the operationalization of policy objectives and the organization of markets are intertwined, focusing on two other examples of European environmental regulation.
The second one is the Renewable Energy Directive from , which introduced criteria for the definition of the sustainability of biofuels. Through the analysis of the design and implementation of these two directives, we identify a central concern for the coexistence of various objects, and various initiatives undertaken by European institutions, member states and private actors. We use the notion of coexistence to describe a European political and economic ordering that is inherently hybrid, and cannot be reduced to a mere delegation of policy objectives to the market, or a legal constraint imposed on all European actors.
The present article analyzes potential and limits of crowdsourcing software mobile and web applications as tools for civic participation. Based on an empiric study of six Russian and French civic applications, developed in response to a particular public problem corruption, electoral falsifications, police violence and urban problems , the article proposes to address the problem of digital asymmetry from the perspective of pragmatism, STS and software studies The author focuses on the phase of design, coding and testing, and analyzes the procedures of standardization and classification necessary for developing the interfaces.
Developing a civic application, coders propose a certain definition of a public problem and rectify it in the interface. The article argues that an active participation of users in the improvement of the application may help to overcome the limits and asymmetries. The PhD dissertation studies new digital participative technologies called "civic apps", applications for mobile and web developed in response to a large scope of public problems and based on the principle of crowdsourcing.
The research focuses on the conception of these tools, their usages and the way these tools transform the communication among citizens and between citizens and public administrations. It also explores new formats of civic tech innovation, such as civic hackathons, and question the usage of programming code as a new tool of collective action.

La question de la «diversité» dans la devise européenne «Unité dans la Diversité» est la participation citoyenne dans le développement local de la culture. importants d' une vie culturelle contemporaine dans les villes d'Europe centrale et orientale. Elles imposent des limites à la participation citoyenne et à des formes plus Contre l'impératif consistant à créer la ville compétitive, le néo-populisme se . 10Historically, the politics of the city became played out around questions of .. As a version of populist reasoning how is advocacy expressed through language ?.
The thesis calls upon the methodologies of sociology of science and technology, sociology of public problems, political science and science of information and communication. Based on a case-study of several civic apps in France and Russia, the inquiry adresses the following question: how does the translation of public problems into programming code occur? And how do these applications transform civic participation? The research shows that the interfaces standardize and format the practices of participation, using documents such as laws, technical norms and standards.
However, this standardization has its limits. Focusing on the moments of failure and trial, such as tests, updates or debug of applications, the inquiry highlights the practices of bricolage and detournement, deployed by users in order to overcome the framing by design and participate in the rewriting of the applications. The thesis compares civic applications with the applications developed by public administrations and distinguishes two models of communication called the "long chains" and the "short chains".
However, instead of opposing administrative and civic initiatives, the thesis proposes to think from "in-between", analyzing the articulations and arrangements of these socio-technical networks. This paper aims at giving an overview of the different core protocols used for decentralized chat and email-oriented services. The broadening of the anti-discrimination legislation and the growing use of litigation have put pressure on organizations to respond to the law by elaborating formal rules and, in the case of France, negotiating collective agreements on union rights.
This article addresses the issue of union victimization by investigating the various organizational responses to anti-discrimination law. By focusing on in-depth case studies over a long period of time, it offers new insights into the processes whereby law is internalized and how they interact with litigation over time, and also highlights the active, contested and changing role of HR professionals and trade unionists in the shaping of organizational responses.
The idea of reflexivity has much to offer to the analysis of taste - but reflexivity in its ancient sense, a form neither active nor passive, pointing to an originary state where things, persons, and events have just arrived, with no action, subject or objects yet decided. Objects of taste are not present, inert, available and at our service. They give themselves up, they shy away, they impose themselves. On the contrary, they make themselves detect them, through a continuous elaboration of procedures that put taste to the test. Rather, it is a collective technique, whose analysis helps us to understand the ways we make ourselves sensitized, to things, to ourselves, to situations and to moments, while simultaneously controlling how those feelings might be shared and discussed with others.
Que se passe-t-il entre les gens, entre les lieux, entre les moments.
