Armand Braun is 80 years old. He has studied at Strasbourg University (Institut d’Etudes politiques, Faculté de Droit). He is the manager of Société Internationale des Conseillers de Synthèse (SICS), 5 rue d’Alger, 75001 Paris.
The story of this little consulting company is linked to Gaston Berger, a French philosopher (1896-1960) to whom we owe la prospective: a way of imagining what we hope for the future and how to create it. In the Fifties, his work and thought were well known around the world; but he died suddenly.
SICS is still devoted to la prospective. Its partners are heads of large business firms, the only milieu where some people feel an effective responsibility toward the future and act accordingly.
In the Eighties, he has created l’Aventure des métiers: a fair that helps children as young as 10 to 12 to discover the skills and imagine their own professional future.
Les Rencontres des Tuileries, that he manages, is a club where leaders from various environments meet with the creators of the world of tomorrow.
With his wife, Hélène, he wrote Le Bal des Chômeurs (Editions Descartes et Cie, 1999), a novel describing how work and remuneration could lead separate lives. Together, they publish monthly the web site: www.prospective.fr
