Les pratiques de transmission du métier : de l'individu au collectif. Une application au compagnonnage.

Abstract : The general research issue is the following: how can the practices of transmitting individual trades enable the participants to build collective trades together? A theoretical framework was built by crossing literature from several disciplinary fields: sociology and history for trade, strategic management for the intra-organizational transfer of knowledge, human resource management for skills management. This framework suggests laying an emphasis on the characteristics of trade during the process of transmission. From a methodological point of view, the empirical approach consists of three embedded case studies (Yin, 2003), in a specific context: the building and public works trades. The analyses reveal that whilst exercising their trade the subjects integrate four fields of analysis: memory, research, training and meeting. These elements bring together both the importance of tradition (memory) and the changes related to trade through a prospective dimension (research and training). The link between these two dimensions is carried out via the meeting process; the transmission of trade is essentially carried out by the meeting process.
