Projectic is an issue which aims to promote in English, Spanish and French, topics related to emerging thematics linked to the field of human action com-plexity within the organizations. This issue is supported and directed by IAE Metz School of Management of the University of Lorraine. In fact, it would be appropriate to back off from the so-called close rationa-lity, which mainly refers to the conventional approach and sets aside whatever goes beyond it (emotions, intersubjectivity, intentionality, etc.), to move towards open approaches which are aware of the limits of reason, face contradictions and paradoxes, and are systematically based on the research of decompart-mentalization. The fact of considering actions as complex leads to question the type of rationality involved within organizations in understanding entrepreneurial and managerial practices. In this light, it becomes a matter of repositioning the complexity of human action to be developed within its environment in general, and more particularly within the organization. Indeed, the complexity experienced by the human in order to manage, undertake and innovate beings to be developed within the framework of the organization plays an important role in understanding and transforming the human action. The will to (re)introduce complexity to understand organizations through the action of development within research in management reflects a certain need, namely that of going beyond a blind spot, where the complexity of action has been the subject of research studies that are often too partitioned and partitioning. The objective is to focus on the entirety of development within organizations, which would help understand and establish links between the individual action around the knowing subject and the collective action. Thereby, this issue aims to take part in the establishment of thoughts underpinned by new conceptual and methodological knowledge for the action of managing and undertaking within organizations. In this perspective, papers that are expected are those wishing to address the complexity of action within organizations under a new and original angle, helping generate new knowledge to our scientific community.
