Abstract

The paper considers the current challenges that organizations have to cope with in managing people and knowledge at the present time, moved by turbulent contexts and crisis at a social and at an organizational level. It begins with a question around the possibility of a dialogue between the two disciplines that could jointly contribute to the development of organizational responses, economics and psychology, and it discusses their relationship on the basis of field experiences. In discussing what is nowadays sustainable in the relations between society and organizations, the paper argues the role of intersubjectivity in organizational processes as the resource that allows to cope with unpredictable events and changes both for individuals and groups challenged to live and contribute to their work contexts. Four approaches in organizing the management of technical, economical and social/human resources are presented and analysed in their capacity to offer an interdisciplinary dialogue
