Pas seulement des «lemmings». Les relations entre les organisations et leur environnement dans le néo-institutionnalisme sociologique

    (Nottingham University Business School)

(VF)Développé pour expliquer l’isomorphisme interorganisationnel, le néo-institutionnalisme sociologique insiste initialement sur l’influence de l’environnement social et culturel sur les organisations, prenant peu en compte leur capacité d’action stratégique. Des évolutions récentes et moins connues de ce courant réintroduisent au cœur du néo-institutionnalisme les capacités stratégiques des agents et notamment leurs aptitudes à modifier les «règles du jeu» qui régissent l’environnement, proposant ainsi de nouvelles perspectives en théorie des organisations comme en stratégie. (VA)Developed to explain mimetic behaviours among organizations, the new institutionalism in organizational analysis initially emphasized the social and cultural environment’s influence on organizations, while giving little consideration to actors’ capacities to act strategically. Recent evolutions in institutional analysis have introduced actors’ strategic capacities into new institutional-ism at central place. Doing so, they consider the actors’ capacities to shape the «rules of the game» and eventually provide new perspectives, both in organizational theory and in strategy.
