Les transformations de l'État territorial (2007-2010), saisies par l'analyse de l'activité des directeurs départementaux en matière de gestion des personnels

Abstract : The process of modernization of the territorial services of the State, and quite particularly its manager part, is part of an already ancient story, even if the dynamics and the modalities of the change vary according to the ministerial departments. In this context, the period 2003-2007, with the introduction of a different budgetary approach (the LOLF), the reorganization of the departmental services of the State (RéaTE), and the renovation of the modalities of jobs and skills management, constitutes a turning point which can be seen as the application of the principles of the new public management. The thesis bases on a job analysis of the departmental managers of ministries evoked in the reorganization in this context of modernization, quite particularly around the human resources part. This analysis is prepared by a presentation of the stories of the reform in the ministries of equipment, of agriculture, and the factory inspectorate, and a display of the perception of these transformations by the agents. These two aspects indeed constitute the essential constraints of the activity of managing the change. They show that the "human resources" post plays a central role in the transformations specific to every ministry. To study the work of these executives, to give an account of their processes, is at the same time to shed light on executives' activity in an administration, that is put openly by the change during this period, and on the stakes in this moment of the reform. The analysis of the rooms to maneuver, which enable them to lead the change, reveals also how much the tensions, generated by the contradictions of a reform everywhere, concentrate on them. The way they express their anxiety puts the question of the risks of a too important decline of these actors, the only ones able to put in coherence the missions, the men and their skills, and a work organization
