Abstract

Based on innovation and organizational learning concepts, we will illustrate the interest of implementing strategic management devices allowing actors to adapt in the process to constant changes within the agri-food systems. We mention as example changes in markets organisation, changing expectations of consumers, multiplication of short marketing chains, societal willingness questioning the ways of producing and transforming, ...while arises changes in the surrounding conditions of production (land access, climate change,...) that affect availability of resources... To adapt to – and take advantage of - these changes, stakeholders in the agri-food sectors, i.e. farmers and their cooperatives, may promote new tools within their organization allowing anticipations. These should deal with ability to analyse the running changes allowing new rules, norms and values within these organisations. Being resilient requires both flexibility to change and robustness relying on operating rules that fit the organization. We will take the example of the management of a dairy cooperative, whose adaptation to evolutions of the agri-food systems, needs to settle innovations, at several scales, mutually consistent. We will focus on the interest to set up devices and tools, such as the log book, allowing the actors to follow changes to analyze and think an evolution of their organization in coherence. These tools are related to the downstream part of the chain about diversity of marketing channels and products on one hand and, on the other hand, upstream the chain about managing a diversity of farming systems and accompanying specified technical and organizational changes fostering complementarities between these systems.
