A unique, humanist, collaborative learning community
CEDEP’s collaborative learning community understands the value of active participation and open exchange and leveraging collective intelligence to develop leaders who create purpose-driven, agile and sustainable organisations.
Our leadership development programmes are rooted in the real world and driven by the real-life challenges of our member companies. Our pedagogy is based on dynamic, innovative, relevant, highly participative and actionable learning.
In our open or custom programmes, we always challenge conventions and assumptions, while inspiring new and empowering thinking from the inside out, building internal capacity and ownership.
In an ever-changing and uncertain world, we choose to work together to make the world a better place for us all.
If you share the same values and believe in a humanist philosophy and approach, participate in our open programmes or co-create a highly-personalised custom program.
Join our independent and non-profit Executive Education Club, co-run by our member companies from diverse and non-competing industries.

3rd Opus in the Lost in Management Series of our Learning Partner François Dupuy
The 3rd opus in the “Lost in management” series written by our professor, the sociologist Francois Dupuy, describes his reflection on the complexity that distinguishes structural complexity, functional complexity and relational complexity, which leads to a virtuous complexity that reconciles the performance of the company and the well-being of employees.
The time for solutions has arrived thanks to this 3rd volume because if the sociology of organisations is often criticised for stopping at diagnosis, you will find in this book all the tools and methods of a theory of action.
“Lost in management 3” by François Dupuy is the book to read for all those who “navigate” in companies nowadays because, as L’Express says in their article, it offers the most relevant reflection on management over the last ten years!
