La théorie positive de l'agence : positionnement et apports

  • Gérard Charreaux

[fre] Souvent confondue avec la théorie des coûts de transaction ou avec la théorie principal-agent, la théorie positive de l'agence possède un statut original, dû notamment à l'importance attribuée au lien entre l'efficience et l'utilisation optimale de la connaissance spécifique. L'article poursuit trois objectifs. Premièrement, il rappelle les composantes centrales de la théorie. Deuxièmement, il vise à en rectifier la lecture habituelle. Troisièmement, il cherche à montrer la diversité des questions traitées au sein des sciences de gestion. [eng] Frequently confused with the transaction cost theory or the principal-agent theory, the positive agency theory actually owns an original status. This status is mainly due to the importance granted to the link between efficiency and the optimal use of specific knowledge. This article aims at three goals. Firstly, it reminds the main constituents of the theory. Secondly, it tries to rectify the usual presentation of the theory. Thirdly, it shows the diversity of the considered problems in the management science field.
