What do metrologists and pedagogues have in common? These terms have multiple evocations that need to be clarified . Both are facilitators. The metrologist is the conductor of the measurement management system in his company. The pedagogue accompanies the change by choosing tools adapted to learners specificities. Both have the function of developing a strategy to track compliance through the measurement of deviations. The metrologist helps to demonstrate compliance of the product with the specified requirements by providing the appropriate measurement strategy. The pedagogue develops a learning strategy to enable the learner to gain competence. Both activities are at the service of other entities. The metrologist is at the service of production just as the pedagogue is at the service of a content. This involves mastering the project management and benevolent communication techniques. They must be able to create a conducive environment to ease the development of collective intelligence. A training course in metrology must guarantee the performance of measurement, testing and analysis results using play tools that stimulate the creativity and assimilation of learners. The objective is to propose to metrology managers, often multifunctional, an overview of their responsibilities in order to help them (re)discover the large range of their function.
