Équipe entrepreneuriale et prise de décision : une étude exploratoire sur le rôle de la diversité du capital humain

Abstract : This research aims to explore the concept of entrepreneurial teams and their features through an understanding of how they make decisions. The research aims to better understand the role of the heterogeneity of the members in making decisions. After a theoretical justification that highlights the main concepts and theories related to the phenomena studied, the research implements an empirical research which, through the process of triangulation, explore the role of diversity in the entrepreneurial team decision-making process. The qualitative approach, adopted for collecting data from seven cases at various stages of development, allows analyzing the logic of team dynamics, leadership, functioning and evolution of these phenomena. The approach in the long term emphasizes the relationship between the team members and their ways in making decisions at the different stages of the evolution of the organization. The second part of this research helps to show the characteristics of the entrepreneurial teams, covering types of decisions faced by the team and the role of the diversity of its members in the decision-making process. The observed results contribute both to clarify a theoretical approach, and to offer practical proposals to new venture founders and consultants in business creation. Research suggests that the entrepreneurial team is a dynamic and evolving entity where the behavior of its members changes with the stages of development of the organization. The diversity of the members plays an important role in rising good alternatives, making the adequate decisions, and improving implementation as well. In addition, diversity acts on the leadership style and dynamics of the team, which result in the development of a learning process. The size of the organization and development of productivity significantly alter the behavior of team members and the role of diversity within the team and the organization.
