Pouvoir et coopération dans la firme et entre les firmes
In this article, the objective is triple. First of all, we propose a renewed theoretical framework of power relationships, which takes into account certain approaches to organization theory (notably the resource dependence-based view), in order to help to fill the conceptual vacuum left by the theorists of the firm. Then, it is argued that power represents the methodological key needed by economists to analyze the emergence of intra-firm cooperation and of collective social identity in the employment relationship. Lastly, the focus is on the analysis of inter-firm cooperation (subcontracting relationship) to put forward the cohesive role of power in the network-firm and to compare the internal and external governance structures of power relationships.
