Published on 13/11/2017

The first international academic project in open innovation in human resources has been launched…

…at the Télécom Ecole de Management (TEM), the Business School at IMT, as part of the specialized Masters program in ”Digital Human Resources Management”. The results of this unique and innovative experience were published on 21 September 2017 in the white paper of the first edition of OpenHR,which is the opportunity for us to introduce Télécom EM, the Business School at IMT, which is resolutely focused on innovation and digital transformation.

New and innovative ideas are carried through by the students and research professors at TEM and IMT

For 9 months, three groups of students from the MRH Masters course (Masters in Human Resources) at TEM have been working in close collaboration with startups, HR professionals, research professors from Institut Mines-Télécom and the teams from BNP Paribas, Figaro Classifieds and LCL on three subjects proposed by these companies.

  • How do we make contributors more autonomous whilst they develop their skills?
  • How do we get the contributors to be more committed to their work?
  • How do we improve skills management in IT teams?

All of the exchanges and interactions between the different stakeholders have allowed innovative solutions which match current issues in HR to be developed. Two of the three projects which were presented on 9 June 2017 in front of 10 professionals will be put in place in the companies.

Agile future managers who are also capable of managing a digital project from start to finish

Télécom Ecole de management (TEM), the Business School at IMT (Institut Mines-Télécom), is conscious of the major issues and the repercussions of digital transformation and orients its students towards innovation management, particularly in the digital sector. Different academic projects provide the opportunity to unleash potential and encourage creativity and collaborative working. Everyone participates in the Creativity and Innovation Week which takes place in November in their second year of the course. The students spend 5 days working on the issues encountered by partner companies with a view to suggesting innovative, creative and specific solutions on 4 topics: mobility, habitat and Smart City, tomorrow’s trading landscape and co-existing. The students also participate in the “Entrepreneurship Challenge”. For a full week in February, they work on a project in which they create a company alongside their colleagues from the Télécom SudParis (TSP) Engineering School.

TEM trains managers who are capable of talking to engineers

Students on the Télécom Ecole de Management Grande Ecole Program are particularly familiar with the scientific culture. They take joint courses and work on projects together with engineering students. This proximity allows TEM to offer its students joint management and engineering diploma programs. This unique route, which is extremely rare in France, is made possible thanks to far-reaching interaction between the schools and associated schools of Institut Mines Télécom. TEM has also been able to strengthen its international offering by creating three Masters of Sciences majors which are taught in English: “Social Media”, Technology Management” in conjunction with the Symbiosis International University in India, or Big Data Management.
