Abstract

(VF)Sur la base d’un modèle générique de l’interaction entre système de gouvernance d’entreprise et espace discrétionnaire du dirigeant (Charreaux, 2008), le présent article propose un modèle spécifique de la gouvernance des firmes entrepreneuriales en hypercroissance. Ces dernières sont notamment supposées se distinguer par la présence d’un levier cognitif et comportemental fort. Une revue de la littérature empirique consacrée aux mécanismes de la gouvernance des firmes entrepreneuriales en croissance tend à confirmer cette intuition et conforte l’idée de la contingence des dispositifs de gouvernance en fonction des stades de développement. Pour l’entreprise en hypercroissance, le levier cognitif de la gouvernance apparaît comme relativement plus important que le levier disciplinaire.(VA)From a meta-model linking a firm’s corporate governance system to managerial discretion (Charreaux, 2008) the present article derives a specific corporate governance model of the high-growth entrepreneurial firm. A survey of the empirical literature on the governance of entrepreneurial firms confirms the plausibility of the theoretical framework, especially with respect to the cognitive dimension of corporate governance.
