Capital social collectif et rites de passage

Abstract : This research concerns collective social capital and, more specifically, the operating process of engagement networks. We equate the action of these networks with passing rituals. These rituals allow a business executive to move from one values’ framework to another, under the effect of ritualized actions (recurring, symbolic, temporalized and spatialized actions). This assimilation makes it possible to mobilize a proven corpus in anthropology and management. The case study of the “Entreprendre Network” underlines the importance of the “separation phase” at the beginning of the operating process and shows the emergence of a community belonging of the subjects in the “preliminary phase”. At odds with certain management studies, our study also shows that the liminary subject is not here in an ambiguous situation in-between two moral standards and that its reflexivity remains individual, without impact on the rules and practices of the network. From a methodological point of view, it suggests replacing the notion of proximity with that of spatiality. Finally, it establishes managerial recommendations on the collective conduct of individual transformations
