Abstract

Si l'étude du design du système de contrôle de gestion constitue actuellement une des thématiques privilégiées au sein de la recherche, le contexte spécifique de la PME reste cependant peu envisagé. La présente contribution propose, dans un premier temps, une revue des études consacrées aux critères permettant de définir le système de contrôle de gestion d'une entreprise et aux spécificités que manifestent les PME à cet égard. Dans un second temps, elle propose et explore, au départ de l'analyse de six études de cas, un modèle, synthétique, contingent et représentatif des critères pertinents, permettant, d'une part, de caractériser le design du système de contrôle de gestion en contexte PME et, d'autre part, de comprendre la manière dont il se structure et évolue dans une quête constante de stabilité adaptative.
