Abstract

(VF)Le modèle d’organisation ambidextre constitue l’une des réponses avancées par la littérature pour développer des innovations radicales dans les grandes entreprises. Il met en avant la coexistence d’unités dédiées à l’exploitation et d’autres à l’exploration et au développement de ces innovations. L’articulation de ces unités, à la fois séparées et intégrées, a été peu étudiée. Sur la base d’une étude longitudinale d’une nouvelle unité organisationnelle créée pour favoriser l’innovation dans une grande entreprise multidivisionnelle, nous ca-ractérisons plusieurs modes d’intégration situés à des niveaux dif-férents et fondés sur des mécanismes variés.(VA)The obstacles to the development of radical innovation in established firms have been widely studied. The ambidextrous organization is one of the answers proposed by the literature. In this organization, specific units are dedicated to the exploration, others to the exploitation and development of radical innovation. But the integration of these specific units into the rest of the firm has not been studied in detail. Our research is based on a longitudinal analysis of a new organisational entity created to enhance innovation in a multidivisional firm. We specify the activities deployed by this specific entity and the way it is integrated into the firm. We also show how this unit participates in divisional reconfiguration.
