Abstract

Si le gouvernement des entreprises fait l'objet de nombreux débats dans les milieux professionnels et politiques, la réflexion théorique sur ce thème reste souvent pauvre et très fragmentaire. L'objectif de cet article est de poser les bases d'une théorie du gouvernement des entreprises. Ce dernier est défini comme l'ensemble des mécanismes qui ont pour effet de délimiter les pouvoirs et d'influencer les décisions des dirigeants, autrement dit, qui "gouvernent" leur conduite et définissent leur espace discrétionnaire. L'article est construit autour de quatre questions fondamentales, visant à proposer une problématique permettant de structurer un programme de recherche dans ce domaine important. (1) Que recouvrent les systèmes de gouvernement des firmes? (2) Comment fonctionnent et évoluent ces systèmes? (3) Quelles sont les qualités d'un système efficace? (4) Existe-t-il un système plus performant?
