    Abstract

    Malgré le nombre grandissant de publications sur l’implémentation de la gestion de projet et sa valeur pour les organisations, il y a peu d’études de cas explorant la valeur de l’implémentation de la gestion de projet dans le contexte particulier des instituts de recherche. Cette étude de cas explore la façon dont la mise en place d’une gestion de projet a évoluée dans un institut de recherche fédéral Canadien en comparant les premières étapes de l’implémentation formelle (2007) à l’état actuel (2010). Plus particulièrement, cet article présente l’approche sélectionnée par l’institut pour faire face aux défis spécifiques et aux avantages qu’un institut de recherche peut rencontrer lors de l’implémentation de la gestion de projet. En conclusion, cet article contribuera à mieux comprendre la valeur de la gestion de projet pour les instituts de recherche. While the number of publications about project management implementation and its value for organizations in general has increased, there is a lack of case studies exploring the value of project management implementation within the particular context of research institutions. This case study investigates how the implementation of project management has evolved at a Canadian Federal research institute by comparing the early stages of its first formal implementation (2007) with the more recent status (2010). Particularly, the paper will discuss the Institute’s approach to coping with the specific challenges and opportunities an organization focusing on research might face when implementing project management. As a result, this paper will contribute to better understanding the value of project management for research institutions.
