Abstract

L’objectif de ce travail est d’analyser les facteurs responsables de l’adoption des Technologies de l’Information et de la Communication (TIC) dans un pays en développement. Pour cela, nous estimons un modèle probit ordonné bivarié sur un échantillon de 1008 entreprises industrielles au Came-roun. En plus des déterminants traditionnels cités par les modèles de diffusion technologique et de profitabilité attendue (effets de rang, de stock-ordre et épi-démiques), nous mettons en évidence le facteur de « complémentarité des pra-tiques organisationnelles » proposé par la théorie de la supermodularité, d’une part, et les caractéristiques des dirigeants, d’autre part. Nos résultats économé-triques montrent que l’adoption des TIC par les entreprises dépend principale-ment des pratiques organisationnelles, de la taille, du statut juridique, du capi-tal humain du dirigeant et de l’adoption par les autres entreprises du secteur ou de la région. Nous trouvons ainsi qu’il existe un lien de complémentarité entre l’adoption des TIC et le niveau de pratiques organisationnelles. Ce travail met également en évidence l’importance du dirigeant, notamment dans les petites et moyennes entreprises, rôle souvent négligé dans la littérature sur l’adoption des TIC.
