Is it possible to carry out the necessary transformations in our society and our companies without leaving people by the wayside? Jean-Pierre Aubert’s entire career has revolved around this contradiction and the means by which one can manoeuvre around the multiple obstacles and blockages which make this task particularly difficult in our country.  How can the State, which until recently was powerful but has since been weakened, win back the trust of economic agents which were dependent on it? According to Jean-Pierre Aubert, the answers can be found on a regional level and among the people in these areas. Fundamentally, this transformation must involve human resources which are all too often sacrificed in the name of profitability which in retrospect proves to be short-sighted.
