Théorie et pratique des styles de management : une comparaison inter-nationale universalité, contingence et transférabilité des styles de management : la France, l'Allemagne et le Portugal

Abstract : The study is at the meeting point of the research fields of cross-national comparative management and of socio-economic corporate strategy. It contains two main parts : the first one, merely conceptual, presents the state of tha art on the subject; the second one, fundamentally empirical, inductive and exploratory, aims at describing, comparing and analysing the current management systems in a sample of companies from several countries : France (112 companies), Germany (55 companies) and Portugal (23 companies). The empirical study intends to highlight the differences and similarities in the management styles of companies from different national home-countries and location countries. the research sample is three-dimensional : headquarters in each country, French subsidiaries of foreign groups and foreign subsidiaries of French groups. the three samples are comparable : each company in a given sample is coupled with a company in each of the two others. The study then tries to explain those differences and similarities, through such variables as national cultures, the corporate environment, the location country, the corporate culture, the size and the industry sector of the firm. It eventually tries to appraise the economic performance of each national predominant system. The scope of such a research is theoretical (organization theory, firm's socio-economic analysis and contingency degree of management principles and methods) as well as practical (implications for managing MNCs and foreign subsidiaries, for cross-national and cross-cultural management).
