Understanding the needs for alternative management - by Roland Vaxelaire[Proceedings] by Roland Vaxelaire

2008-06-01

After completing his studies in Belgium and an MBA in Chicago, Roland Vaxelaire has worked for eight years for Nestlé in commercial and marketing fields. Afterwards he has worked for Danone for ten years first in marketing then as head of the beer sector in Belgium, before taking over a major Belgian group of distribution, GB, that he sold to Carrefour later on. Since then, he has been working as quality and sustainable development director before ending up in his current position as director of responsibility and risks in quality for the entire Carrefour group.

In this seminar, Roland Vaxelaire presents the objective of the series of conferences that he and Eve Chiapello, in charge of the Major Alternative Management, put together. Some questions are to be raised: why is it necessary to think of new ways of managing companies, given the major modifications that the world is undergoing? These changes are threefold: the issues are taken into account at a world-wide level since the local structures are not capable of dealing with them any more; the private firms are facing everyday matters and have to take on the responsibility. Thus, in such a context, yesterday's hierarchical management has to be rethought. To this end, Roland Vaxelaire proposes to gather managers that have learnt from the managing of their own firms and integrated this new logic.
