Humility And Conscience In Business: A French Deficiency?

Let us start from a simple observation which requires humility: no one is able to grasp the totality of a very complicated artefact alone, especially when it is developed in a complex multi-disciplinary and multi-cultural environment. When we build an airplane, a submarine or a city, many skills are necessary, and this, at all levels (design, production monitoring, maintenance, etc.). In our time, the rise of smart connected systems and the development of mechatronics only amplify this phenomenon. By Michel Paillet, PhD, co-founder of Cognitive Companions.
