LE MANAGER ET LA TRANSGRESSION ORDINAIRE DES REGLES : LE CAS DES SOCIETES DE CONSEIL EN MANAGEMENT

Abstract : Previous works of management science show that devious practices exist in every organization. A kind of rules transgression seems to be forgotten though: daily, well-known and widespread transgressions which are not harmful but play a part in organization's functioning.
Our field inquiries try to show the existence of what we call « ordinary transgression » by using the case of management consulting firms.
Our own experience and our interviews enable us to see that a sort of transgression taking the shape of a consensual facework in management consulting firms exists. This practice allows the consultant to reconcile contradictory constraints imposed by the environment. The gap between rules and practices presents the characteristics of ordinary transgression: a permanent, daily, widespread practice which is not harmful and plays a part in organization's functioning.
