Le concept de grappes technologiques. Un cadre formel


  • Jean-Benoît Zimmermann


[fre] Dans cet article, nous posons les bases d'une approche formalisée de la théo­rie des grappes technologiques. Le but en est de disposer d'un modèle, d'un lan­gage spécifique dans lequel cadrer les différentes questions relevant de l'analyse des relations entre la technologie d'une part, l'organisation et les stratégies indus­trielles d'autre part. Dans ce sens, il s'agit de beaucoup plus que d'un concept de stratégie d'entreprise. Partant de la nature combinatoire des activités industrielles, la technologie est considérée ici comme clef de lecture d'une analyse morphologi­que de ces activités. [eng] In this paper we set up the basis of a formalised approach to technology bunching theory. The objective is to provide a model, a specific language, as a framework in which to ana­lyse the interrelationship between technology and industrial organisation and strategies. In that sense, the technology bunching concept embraces a far wider scope than firms' strategies. By recognizing the combinatorial nature of industrial activity it treats techno­logy as a key for a morphological analysis of industrial organisation.
