François Dupuy, member of CEDEP’s Academic Committee and a CEDEP Fellow, as well as being one of CEDEP’s stars, is an independent sociologist who continues to operate frequently in academic and consulting positions.
His work focuses on strategic analysis of organisations as a tool for diagnostics of organisational issues and change management. He has written numerous books and articles, including “Lost in management: la vie quotidienne des entreprises au XXIème siècle” and “Business for the 21st century: towards simplicity and trust”.
