Les technologies de l’information et de la communication ont un rôle structurant : depuis plus d’un demi-siècle, les techniques issues de l’électronique, et les façons dont elles sont utilisées, ont profondément modifié l’ensemble des données économiques, la production, le management, le travail, l’entrepreneuriat. L’économie numérique (versus « industrielle ») se situe dans un univers systémique. Divers travaux académiques réalisés sur la thématique des relations entre technologies et travail et sur de nombreuses expériences concrètes dans les domaines de l’innovation sur les plans territorial, managérial, institutionnel et l’individuel permettent aujourd’hui d’analyser les nouvelles solutions offertes par le travail à distance. Information and communication technologies have a structuring role: for over half a century, the techniques ensuing from electronics, and the ways they are used, have profoundly changed the whole economic, production, management, labor and entrepreneurship situations. The digital economy (versus the “industrial” one) is a systemic universe. Various academic studies conducted on the topic of the relationship between technology and work and many practical experiences in the areas of territorial, managerial, institutional and individual innovation now give the possibility to analyze the new solutions offered by teleworking.
