Les compétences de l'entrepreneur : définition, démarches d'évaluation et facteurs de développement

Abstract : In France, micro-enterprises are considered as a sensitive and strategic leverage to local and national economic dynamism. They constitute an object of institutional policies that encourage entrepreneurs to create and develop business. Many of the research place competences amongst the key factors that determine the competitiveness of the organisation and that are, as a result, necessary for guaranteeing its long term sustainability or its development. This research aims to offer new insights to the key question of competence on the entrepreneurial development and new venture training. It had carried out a qualitative and longitudinal methodology to investigate, since five years, three dimensions of the concept: definition, evaluation approach and factors of development. The literature review concerned two theoretical fields: Human Resource Management and Entrepreneurship. The empirical investigation had carried out within the framework of two projects in Lorraine: the Lorrain Entrepreneurs' Club project (Club des Dirigeants Lorrains) and the HR Convergence project (Convergence RH). The results obtained relate, therefore to the development of a competences reference and an evaluation tool for use in training, through an interactive process. First, this study proposed a definition of the competences' entrepreneur. Secondly, it established and tested an approach adapted to assess them. Third, it suggested the factors to develop these competences. The thesis provides theoretical, methodological and managerial orientations to precise and clarify the concept of competence in the entrepreneurial research.
