Compétences pour innover et coopérations technologiques - Une analyse multivariée de l'industrie française


  • Zouhour Karray


[fre] L'objet de cet article est d'examiner s'il existe, au-delà du lien bien connu entre innovation et compétence, un lien entre le noyau des compétences internes de l'entreprise et sa participation à des relations de coopération technologique. Afin de tester ce lien, nous mobilisons une base de données issue de l'enquête sur les « compétences pour innover » réalisée par le SESSI en 1997. Une analyse multivariée de la variance nous permet de montrer que le noyau de compétences internes (articulation des interactions internes, compétences technologiques, maîtrise de l'environnement) discrimine entre les entreprises participant à des collaborations technologiques et celles qui ne s'engagent pas dans de telles relations. Les compétences sont alors d'une part indispensables pour les collaborations technologiques, et sont d'autre part le produit de ces relations de coopération. [eng] The purpose of this article is to examine whether there exists, beyond the link well-known between innovation and competence, a link between the core internal competences of the company and its participation in technological cooperative agreements. In order to test this link, we mobilize a database coming from the « competences to innovate » survey realized by the SESSI in 1997. A multivariate analysis of variance enables us to show that the core internal competences (managing internal interactions, technological competences, and environment control) discriminate between the companies taking part in technological cooperative agreements and those which do not enter into such relations. Competences are on the one hand required for technological collaborations and on the other hand the result of those relationships.
