About this product
- DescriptionThe goal for ergomics has always been to adapt work, work environments, and machines to humans. But is this goal still sufficient? Does it satisfy the needs of the individual or of societies and organizations as they operate w? Constructive Ergomics provides an answer to these questions. Rooted both in the academic world and in the world of practitioners of the domain, it details a constructive, developmental view where ergomics seeks to eliminate the factors and conditions that impede performance and development. This book advocates that ergomics cant remain content with a limited and static view of adaptation, a view that would restrict its goal to designing systems that are suited to work as it is defined at a certain point in time, to workers as they are at a particular moment, and to organizations as they operate here and w. Author Pierre Falzon argues that the objective of ergomics must be the development of individuals, based on setting up situations of action that lead to increased success and to the acquisition or construction of kw-how, kwledge, and skills. The global framework presented in this book revises profoundly the goals of the discipline, elucidating a vel approach to work, health, and performance shored up by integration models from ecomics and management theory. An exploration of an invative, developmental view of ergomics, the book redefines the ambition of the discipline and describes the elements of its scope. It provides a solid and new conceptual background and methodological tools for intervening in real-life contexts.
