Le present document decrit les constatations tirees d'un programme de recherche visant a souligner l'importance des competences qui decoulent des investissements dans l'actif incorporel pour le processus de croissance des entreprises. Le programme comportait deux parties. Premierement, des bases de donnees longitudinales ont fourni un riche ensemble d'etudes sur les entrees, les sorties, les fusions et d'autres aspects de la dynamique liee a la croissance et au declin des populations d'entreprises. Ces etudes ont demontre l'omnipresence de la croissance et du declin dans la population des entreprises. En soi, elles n'indiquent pas quelles strategies distinguent les entreprises les plus prosperes des moins prosperes. Voila pourquoi nous avons cree un ensemble d'enquetes-entreprises qui ont permis de concevoir des profils sur le genre de competences qui decoulent des investissements dans le capital organisationnel. A leur tour, celles ci ont ete reliees aux donnees administratives pour nous permettre de classer les entreprises comme etant en expansion ou en declin. Nous nous sommes alors demandes quel etait le lien entre les differences dans les competences et le rendement des entreprises.
