Conditions de succès d'implantation des réformes administratives en Afrique : leçons apprises au sujet des stratégies d'appui au changement


  • Jacques Bourgault


This article reviews, on the basis of observation made between 1994 and 2004 during eight reforms in developing countries, a series of ten factors which significantly have affected the success of the projects of reforms. The success of a reform, according to the author, counts on factors of conscience of the needs, investment, communication, anchoring, leadership, respect of the calendar, coordination, integration, administrative equality between department and training. In conclusion, the author tries to identify four situations where the implementation of a reform is compromised.
