Organizations – and companies – expect the best when it comes to their members’ contributions. Nevertheless, experience shows to what extent a really sustainable organizational development supposes a long-term oriented action and attitude which are coeval to integrating uncertainty as a key data for management. We show that this observation amounts to adopting a socratic attitude in the best understanding of the word: the other side of admitting ignorance and uncertainty as the philosopher Socrates did is to be understood as a radical capacity to learn, collectively as well as individually – e.g. for an organization, as to showing a capacity to be really creative and innovative on a daily basis.
