    () (labrii, ULCO)


La mondialisation et la globalisation des marchés semblent compromettre la pérennité de la plupart des PME dont la situation stratégique est, d’ordinaire, fragile. Dans ce contexte, elles disposent, pourrait-on dire, d’une ultime alternative: l’innovation globale. Il en résulte sa maîtrise par une double action. La première prescrit de l’envisager dans la totalité de ses multiples formes pour ne pas réduire les opportunités internes et externes. La deuxième consiste à s’appuyer sur des synergies. Celles-ci ont une double origine. La première est de type organisationnel et fonde la culture de l’innovation. La seconde est externe et produite par l’accompagnement managérial et industriel. Celui-ci façonne et assure de surcroît la continuité des valeurs culturelles en terme d’innovation globale Globalization seems to question the durability of smes, whose strategic situation is in general fragile. In this context, they have an ultimate alternative: global innovation. The sme masters global innovation, through two main actions. The first consists in considering innovation in its various forms in order to avoid reducing internal and external opportunities. The second is to rely on synergies. These synergies stem from the organization which builts the culture of innovation and also from the managerial and industrial accompaniment. This one builts and ensures the durability of cultural values in terms of global innovation
