Abstract

(VF)L’approche dominante de la gouvernance d’entreprise s’inscrit dans une logique d’essence disciplinaire. Pourtant, la création de valeur ne se réduit pas à un simple problème de discipline, mais comporte également une dimension cognitive, notamment dans le cas des entreprises innovantes. Fort de ce constat, le présent article tente de contribuer à un effort d’intégration des explications disciplinaire et cognitive des phénomènes de gouvernance, en défendant l’hypothèse selon laquelle le poids respectif des variables disciplinaires et cognitives n’est pas figé, mais dépend du stade de développement des entreprises étudiées. Ce cadre théorique est illustré à travers l’histoire longue du Groupe Air Liquide.(VA)Mainstream explanations of corporate governance work from an essentially disciplinary perspective. The creation of value, however, is not merely a matter of discipline, but also encompasses a cognitive dimension, especially in the case of the innovative enterprise. The present paper hence attempts to contribute to integrate disciplinary and cognitive explanations of governance. It defends the assumption, according to which the relative weight and relevance of the disciplinary and cognitive variables should not be conceived of as static, but depends on the development stage of the firms under examination. The long history of Air Liquide gives an illustration of this theoretical frame.
