Abstract

Cet article fournit des fondements théoriques à l'augmentation simultanée de la polyvalence, le capital humain et l'usage de l'informatique dans de nombreux pays de l'OCDE dans les années 1990. les liens entre organisation du travail, technologie et capital humain sont modélisés en établissant les conditions sous lesquelles les firmes allouent le temps de travail des travailleurs entre plusieurs tâches productives. Le changment organisationnel est ensuite analysé dans une perspective dynamique comme la transition de la spécialsiation à la polyvalence en mettant l'accent sur ses déterminants technologiques et éducatifs.
