Bio

I am professor at emlyon business school and Sustainable Futures course director. The Sustainable Futures course is featured in the core curriculum of Grande école, international MBA, and executive MBA students.

My research focuses on organizational anticipation, decision-making, and action in uncertain environments. I am also studying how companies may contribute to building a “fertile” future, which would be resourceful, resilient, and inclusive.

In 2020 I published Prospective : Anticiper, décider et agir dans l'incertitude (EPFL Press). This book compiles several years of research, teaching, and facilitation of strategic foresight initiatives.

Today I am regularly invited by companies, non-profit organizations, international organizations, etc to help their leadership team make sense and establish a fruitful position in those unprecedented contextual environments they are dealing with.
