Abstract

(VF)La méthode QCA (Qualitative Comparative Analysis) développée par Ragin (1987) innove quant à son positionnement vis-à-vis des méthodologies traditionnelles qualitatives et quantitatives. Elle se diffuse actuellement dans différentes sciences sociales bien que son audience en gestion reste encore faible. Nous cherchons dans cet article à identifier le positionnement potentiel de cette méthode en gestion. Pour ce faire, nous replaçons la QCA dans une analyse plus large des méthodes de recherche à partir d'une étude quantitative des publications de trois revues internationales en management. Nous concluons à l'existence d'une niche pour la QCA, tout en présentant ses conditions d’application dans notre champ.(VA)The Qualitative Comparative Analysis (QCA) proposed by Ragin (1987) innovates with respect to traditional qualitative and quantitative methods. By now, QCA is diffusing in several social sciences although its audience in management research remains confidential. In this article, we aim to identify the potential positioning of this method in the field of management. Consequently, we lead a quantitative analysis of methods mobilized in articles published in three leading journals. The results suggest that a niche is available for QCA. However, we stress the conditions of an adequate and cautious implementation of this method in management research.
