Deux axes principaux caractérisent mes travaux, axes qui par ailleurs se rejoignent :
– Les entreprises familiales. Formes « singulières » d’entreprises (même si elles sont dominantes dans le monde), elles présentent généralement des performances supérieures à celles des entreprises non-familiales. Elles sont gérées sur la durée, elles mettent en place des stratégies différenciées dans tous les domaines.
– La gestion des multinationales et les spécificités du contrôle des unités distantes. Les questions inhérentes, à la fois aux problématiques de contrôle (au sens large) et de Gestion Internationale des Ressources Humaines demeurent cruciales dans notre monde actuel. En ce qui concerne mes travaux, elles sont fondamentalement orientées vers la présence des multinationales françaises en Asie.

Two main themes characterize my academic work axes that also meet:
– Family businesses. Considered as “singular” businesses (even if they are dominant in the world), they generally have higher performance than non-family businesses. They are managed « in the long run », they implement differentiated strategies in all areas.
– MNCs management and control of subsidiaries. Different issues are involved, both to control issues (broadly speaking) and International Human Resources Management. Regarding my work, they are fundamentally oriented towards the presence of French MNCs in Asia.

The management of behavior and attitudes to work is a crucial angle analysis to understand the functioning of organizations and success of management systems. The Human Resource Management course supports reflection on reconciling economic and social. In this perspective, my research to center around 3 major themes :

  • HR practices aimed at promoting CSR in the organization (sponsorship skills, simulation recruitment method, vis-à-vis equity territories ...)
  • attitudes and behavior in the career management field (proactivity, retraining, career security ...)
  • emotions at work in a global reflection on Occupational Health (stress, job insecurity, work - family conflict ...).

My research areas were built and developed around three main themes :

The first object for marketing issues related to the creation, management and enhancement of relationships and social interactions between organizations and their customers. This is to understand the strategic and operating voltages into play when market players, to develop their activities, "Dress" offers their non-market elements. What we called the socio-cultural background of the offer allows us to address issues around the type of social link offered by the market but also the resistances and alternatives which he is subject.

The second concerns the apprehension of consumption in a comprehensive reading. This is to see how the consumer representations and practices make sense in reference to membership in the underlying cultures (from. regional, migration, gendered, social etc.). It is from these cultural registers that can understand the role of consumption, and thus the market as providers of resources and skills, in identity construction contemporary individuals.

The third theme, committed more recently, resumes previous issues but in the more normative goal to offer a reading and consumption changes support practices induced by the struggle against global warming. This is an interest in understanding the consumption of alternative development methods, collaborative and responsible by identifying psychological barriers, social and organizational.

Transverse way, I mobilize : methodologically essentially qualitative methods (Interviews, ethnography, life stories, photo-elicitation) ; at the theoretical level, socio-anthropological approaches (culture, socialization, don, lien social, identity, power). These tools are also potentially useful for new courses and managerial questioning beyond one marketing field, such as management and managerial innovation or strategy and positioning organizations.

My research interest in the 'risk manager' (FRM) in large French companies :
– the birth of the FRM. The recent history of risk management used to date and explain the creation of the FRM, to identify the actors of the emergence, to propose an interpretation, to put into perspective its future developments ;
– identifying the FRM : are doing RM ? What is their role in the organization ? We propose a reading activity and organizational RM up and FRM around customer issues and authority and put into perspective their future developments. Aggregation analysis by the activity and the place of RM in the organization will help bring out the organizational roles of FRM.
The work on the FRM find their meaning in the timeliness of risk management issues : the major French companies implement Enterprise-wide-Risk Management and FRM has become a challenge for the Boards. These issues meet the reflections of the Association for Risk Management and the Business of Insurance (AMRAE) the function (value created, role) and echo the questions of RM. These elements should also encourage further work on the identification of the FRM (typology of roles) and the question of its professionalization.

La littérature sur le management de la chaîne logistique est indissociable d’une modification profonde des rapports entre les acteurs de la logistique. Au sein de la littérature en management stratégique et en logistique, et en tant qu’activité localisée et inter-organisationnelle à l’interface de nombreuses parties prenantes, les plates-formes logistiques multimodales apparaissent comme un point de convergence incontournable de la compétitivité des entreprises et des territoires. In this perspective, nous cherchons à comprendre la réalité de l’articulation entre l’architecture organisationnelle des plates-formes logistiques multimodales et leur compétitivité ex-ante.
Mots clés : architecture organisationnelle, compétitivité, plate-forme logistique multimodale, management de la chaine logistique.

Mes recherches portent sur les besoins des investisseurs en informations financières et comptables. Plus particulièrement, je m’intéresse au cas des investisseurs institutionnels qui, en raison de leurs compétences et du type de relation d’agence dans laquelle ils se trouvent, ont des besoins en informations spécifiques.
Indeed, l’investisseur institutionnel se trouve dans une double relation d’agence et est amené à jouer le rôle d’un agent professionnel. Il s’agit donc de s’interroger sur son comportement lors de sa prise de décision d’investissement et lors de la reddition de compte qu’il effectue à son client.
Les études menées se basent sur des méthodes qualitatives (entretiens semi-directifs, content analysis, analyse factorielle…) et quantitatives (expérimentation, tests des effets indirects…).

L’intégration des principes du développement durable au sein de la gestion courante et stratégique des entreprises (processus de production, processus d’approvisionnement, choix d’implantation et d’investissement) et la mise en œuvre d’une démarche de Responsabilité Sociale (CSR) sont devenues ces dernières années des préoccupations majeures pour les entreprises. La recherche sur le management de la RSE interroge le rôle de l’entreprise dans la société et traite des réponses apportées par l’entreprise aux attentes et sollicitations de la société. In this perspective, n​os recherches portent sur la dimension territoriale de la RSE en contexte international (ancrage territorial des multinationales, contribution aux démarches de développement territorial durable), sur les outils de déploiement d’une démarche de RSE et sur le management stratégique de la RSE.​

This particular led me to investigate the effects of the report in the future of older people on their economic choices (subject of my thesis). More broadly, My research is part of the study of the mechanisms underlying the effects of demographic variables on the trade-offs between spending and saving and savings choices.

Constatant que le temps occupe une place croissante dans les problématiques contemporaines, les organisations se voient obligées de l’intégrer dans leurs logiques de gestion. Cette pression temporelle importante se révèle d’autant plus prégnante lorsqu’elle concerne les projets intrapreneuriaux, situés en dehors des activités prescrites courantes, et pour lesquels il n’existe pas de ressources a priori dédiées. Ma thèse se proposait de comprendre en quoi le temps constitue une ressource permettant aux acteurs d’initier et de poursuivre des projets intrapreneuriaux. L’étude empirique menée s’appuyait sur des entretiens et une semaine d’observation participante à une formation-action à l’intrapreneuriat (Coup de pousse®) avec des membres d’un laboratoire de Recherche et Développement d’une grande entreprise française de l’énergie (GDF SUEZ). Mes résultats permettent de souligner la dimension qualitative du temps (variété des formes de temps impliquées dans les composantes du processus intrapreneurial), d’identifier la disponibilité d’esprit comme une qualité centrale du temps, et de qualifier de procactif le comportement intrapreneurial vis à vis des ressources temps (distinction entre temps alloué et temps autosaisi). Dans le prolongement de cette thèse, mes thèmes de recherche portent sur :
– le management de l’innovation et le développement des pratiques intrapreneuriales dans les grandes organisations;
– la gestion du temps comme un élément qui cristallise la tension entre Formel et Informel ;
– l’approche du temps comme une ressource organisationnelle.

All of my research aims to take into account the issues that local public organizations must face, by seeking to understand them and provide operational managerial responses.

So, my research is focused on the control and management of public organizations, and the transformation of their operating methods. In this direction, I am interested in the management of the performance of local authorities as well as the managerial and strategic management of these organizations, both from a process point of view, only resources, especially heritage.

In addition, the management of public innovation is at the heart of my current work, through the study of the determining factors of innovations, of their adoption and dissemination process, as well as their internal and external impacts.

My scientific approach is based on both qualitative methods, through close relationships with actors in the field (research-interventions, Interviews), but also on quantitative analyzes to carry out broader investigations at national or international level.

Through the paradoxes approach, my research is interested in the sustainability of small businesses and the collective strategies they implement to improve it. Small businesses indeed have a considerable societal impact (because of their number) but also more problems than large to deal with the complexity of sustainability issues (due to their specific management features). By focusing too often on the “business case” of CSR, however little research has addressed the paradoxes of sustainability and how companies can manage them. However, the tensions that they induce can just as easily favor the achievement of a more global success as hinder the performances of the actors and their capacity to respond to the challenges. My work therefore aims to answer the following main questions : What paradoxical tensions small businesses face when it comes to sustainability ? What impacts do these tensions have on leaders and their organizations ? Collective strategies, and the management systems on which they are based, do they create favorable conditions for an effective management of these tensions ? What are the implications (positive and negative) of such management ? To decipher the complexity of these issues while measuring the phenomena, complementarity of qualitative and quantitative methods is then operated.

Mots clés : durability tensions, paradox management, VSE / SME, collective strategies, management systems

They focus on accounting strategies used by leaders in the context of specific operations (downsizing, fusions absorptions, OPA, companies in difficulty). The accounting policies are discussed through results management, the deliberate dissemination of information and narrative impression management. I also do research on the role of the accountant who attends the works councils in reading the information provided by management.

My research s & rsquo; in the context of the management of healthcare organizations and focus specifically on cross organizations covered under the & rsquo; angle of governance and coordination of collective action. These questions are similar to those that have been identified within the & rsquo; Association for Research Applied to Health Management Organizations (Plow) and within the & rsquo; International Association for Research in Public Management (AIRMAP).

My work has led to study various network organization models in the health sector : networks formed around the management of patients (health networks, MAIA) or inter-organizational sharing networks (Groupings & rsquo; hospital purchases).

Work on health networks were discussed in terms of the problem of coordinating the different stakeholders around the care of patients, approached from questions about the place of the actors in this coordination : professional actors and coordination activities (1 research contract funded by the CNSA in partnership with MAIA 31 - 2018 - 2019), place and role of caregivers in this coordination process (in partnership with MAIA 31 and the regional center of neurodegenerative diseases). Coordination was also discussed in the & rsquo; angle performance and the impact of governance models of collective action on the performance of cross organizations.

Work on the performance of the purchasing groups, conducted as part of a research partnership with the Regional grouping Garonne Health Products, CH Cahors, helped provide a multidimensional assessment of their performance model, and to highlight the links between governance models of these groups and their performance, as well as the determinants of performance and impact of the pooling of decision processes. Today these research themes continue integrating the impact of changes in territorial governance models on the pooling of health food purchases, with the establishment of Hospitallers Groupings Territories.

The thesis proposes d & rsquo; invest social representations as a conceptual bridge between the sciences of & rsquo; information and communication and social psychology. The theory of & rsquo; commitment and écocitoyenne standard are questioned through the discourse on ecological transition, the imaginary of & rsquo; ecology and ecological behavior.

The engaging communication is in a socially situated communication situation and instituting.
