(VF)Ce papier combine trois types de méta-analyses pour étudier le lien entre la participation budgétaire et la performance managériale. Il permet de mettre en application certaines préconisations du forum international de Potsdam (1994) sur la méta-analyse en contrôle de gestion. Après une présentation des méthodes de méta-analyse utilisées et des articles compilées, trois synthèses ont été réalisées sur le lien entre la participation budgétaire et la performance managériale. Nous mettons en particulier en œuvre la « synthèse des meilleures études » préconisée par Slavin (1995). Cette triangulation de différentes méta-analyses amène à conclure à un lien positif significatif entre la participation budgétaire et la performance managériale. Nous discutons du traitement de l’hétérogénéité persistant dans les résultats de la «synthèse des meilleures études». La présence de contingences culturelles pourrait expliquer cette hétérogénéité.(VA)This paper is a combination of three methodologies of quantitative synthesis to study the link between budgetary participation and managerial performance. It applies some propositions of the Potsdam international congress on meta-analysis in the field of management control. After an overview of the used methods of meta-analysis and a review of literature, three syntheses were realised on the link between budgetary participation and managerial performance. Particularly, we implement the “best-evidence synthesis” recommended by Slavin (1995). The triangulation of various meta-analyses leads to conclude to a significant positive impact of the budgetary participation on the managerial performance. We additionally discuss the treatment of persistent heterogeneity in the result of the “best evidence synthesis”. The presence of cultural contingencies could explain this persistent heterogeneity.
