After spending 4 years in management consulting, Jean-Charles Pillet has joined the PhD program at Grenoble EM, France. Buidling on the premises that contemporary information technologies are protean artefacts with blurred boundaries, he explores the concept of "hybrid technologies" that span multiple categories (professional-personal, working-playing, tool-toy, etc.). The driving question is how to implement technologies that drive innovation without compromising organizational efficiency and employee well-being. He closely monitors the developments in smart and connected devices, gamification, and the introduction of social media at work. Jean-Charles has pusblished in the International Journal of Information Management and serves as an ad hoc reviewer in Long Range Planning, Management International, Technological Forecasting and Social Change, M@n@gement, and The International Journal of Information Management.
