Abstract

(VF)Les recherches en stratégie questionnent de plus en plus l’importance du facteur spatial pour le développement des groupes. Ce texte s’inscrit dans cette approche en analysant deux facteurs de contingence complémentaires. D’une part, il s’agit d’analyser la répartition spatiale des fonctions d’innovation et de conception au sein des groupes en fonction de leur politique générale et leur style de management. D’autre part, pour comprendre les relations au territoire des groupes, il faut aussi tenir compte de leur logique d’innovation stratégique. Ces facteurs restent peu analysés même si les recherches soulignent fréquemment leur importance sur la stratégie et la dynamique des groupes.(VA)Strategy research increasingly insists on the importance of the spatial factor for the growth of firms. This article follows this approach by analyzing two complementary factors of contingency. On the one hand, it connects the spatial distribution of innovation and design functions inside firms to their corporate policy and their management style. On the other hand, the article underlines the role of strategic innovation in helping to understand the firms' territorial ties. These two factors remain undervalued in spite of their importance for the strategy and the dynamics of firms.
