Methods and Results The methodology adopted is the case study and is essentially based on a detailed description of the process of definition and implementation of the CdP through individual interviews on a panel of privileged actors (entrepreneurs, trade unions, researchers, policy makers) and using information drown from firm’s balance sheets, administrative document of the contract plan, and official statistics. The results is a causal and explanatory analysis of the contract planning and its effects.
