Systèmes de management collectifs et gestion des tensions de la durabilité en petite entreprise : une approche par les paradoxes appliquée au contexte agricole

Abstract : This research analyze the effects of collective management systems on sustainability tensions management in small business, through the paradox approach. To decipher the complexity of this object while measuring the phenomena studied, a mixed methodology (qualitative and quantitative) is applied to the context of agricultural sector, a sector particularly under tensions. Thus, three categories of sustainability tensions in small business are identified and characterized, highlighting the persistent challenges of responsible action. Then, the study of collective management systems leads to the identification of four levers of paradox management in small business which encourages constructive and effective management of these tensions rather than counterproductive defensive attitudes. Finally, this research highlights positive and negative retroactive effects of the constructive resolution of sustainability tensions, showing how paradox management remains a difficult and precarious task. These results lead to the development of several proposals, for research and action, structured around a model of sustainability paradox management in small business.
