LA COMPÉTITIVITÉ DANS LES STRUCTURES EN RÉSEAU - Méthode d'analyse et perspectives managériales.

Abstract : Our thesis means to offer a method to analyse the way network structures work. It is based on the following fact: in the current economic situation, the drastic reduction of costs, as the only way to increase competitiveness, proves to be limited for many firms. Therefore, other means are being used particularly through the organisation of the firm itself, on which network structure management - not fully mastered yet - sheds an interesting light. Through a review of the literature specialised in management, we start studying to what extent network structure can bring an organisational answer to this problem of competitiveness. We examine competitiveness and network structures from the angle of strategic management and we show where both meet. Then, we go deeper into the research question of network structure management showing the elaborate method of analysis "HPAC". For this, we put forward a modelisation of their management bringing together notions of competitiveness and notions of network structures understood as concepts. Our question splits into four theoretical propositions which guide the empirical approach. It is done through three studies of real cases of network structures. Each one covers a particular field (industry, trade and services). Finally, we carry out the qualitative analysis of the data collected with the senior executives we interviewed in the different firms and the discussion on theoretical propositions. From the main results of our study, we develop new theoretical propositions and we point out directions to explore for concrete actions to enrich network structure management.
