Enjeux et limites du pilotage par les indicateurs en management public, l'exemple de la recherche en sciences de gestion
Discourses on New Public Management promote control through indicators and management by results. We analyze, in terms of management control, the case of research in management science to point the mistaken ideas which underpin this type of management. Our demonstration is based on the modelization of the production process and of the system of activities. We underline the confusion made between outputs and outcomes as well the reduction of the complex system of activities which contribute to research to a limited set of indicators. More generally, we aim to demonstrate that research activities do not meet the conditions required for a cybernetic control.
