The rich­ness of a doc­tor­ate in cri­sis management

Jan 25, 2022

For his PhD, Daniel Fran­coeur was inter­est­ed in the detec­tion of weak sig­nals through his doc­tor­al the­sis: Pre­ven­tion and mit­i­ga­tion of crises based on the attri­bu­tion of mean­ing to weak sig­nals: the dynam­ic orga­ni­za­tion­al capac­i­ty for detec­tion and ampli­fi­ca­tion of weak sig­nals”. His objec­tive: to under­stand how pub­lic orga­ni­za­tions man­age to detect dan­ger signs and pre­vent cer­tain crises and why cer­tain orga­ni­za­tions do not devel­op this capacity.

Daniel Fran­coeur recounts the lessons he learned from his doc­tor­al jour­ney I went look­ing for knowl­edge and also I devel­oped a work­ing method that allows me to be effec­tive and effi­cient in com­plex files. »
