Encadrer : c'est tenter de dire ce qu'on fait et où l'on va. Encadrer : c'est tenter d'unifier les orientations du travail. Encadrer : c'est tenter d'élaborer des compromis productifs. Des actes de parole aux paroles en actes. Encadrer : c'est mettre des orientations dans des cadres opérationnels. end générale : un métier very unlikely ?
