Analyse de l'activité et développement de l'auto-efficacité. Contribution à une théorie agentique de la formation des compétences critiques des cadres et dirigeants de la santé publique

Abstract : The aim of this research was to measure the contribution of activity analysis to the development of selfefficacy in the workplace. Our population was comprised of public health executives and managers in training at the French School of Public Health. The research question focused on how to articulate the notion of critical competencies, notoriously difficult to acquire, with cognitive theory and the theory of conceptualization in action. These different but complementary theoretical approaches lead to the idea that activity analysis and agency may contribute explicitly to establishing a model of critical competencies training. Three sources of information data have been exploited. The first characterizes critical competencies in the field of public health management. The second results from measures of the level of job-related self efficacy (697 trainees from the EHESP). The third demonstrates how a system of activity analysis pertaining to managerial decisionmaking contributes to an increase in self efficacy. This result is particularly significant for those trainees with an initially low level of self efficacy. These results indicate that in all cases in which an increase in self efficacy has occurred, irrespective of whether the individuals concerned have benefited or not from established modes of training, activity analysis or self-conducted activity analysis has been the most determining factor in promoting an increase in self efficacy. Thus, this research strengthens the hypothesis that activity analysis and agency represent two major conditions for the formation of critical competencies, i.e. of effective adaptation of the professional to his work environment.
