Tout ce qui est congruent, est-il similaire ? Propositions de définition du concept de congruence en marketing
This paper has for ambition to define the concept of congruency, mainly with regard to those of literal and relational similarity as well as fit. We propose in particular that the congruity is a type of relation of equivalence less strict than the similarity and what it corresponds more to a relational similarity that in a literal similarity. These propositions open promising ways of research in the field of brand extensions, by resorting more to the concept of congruence than to that of similarity.
