L'apprentissage organisationnel entre processus adaptatif et changement dirigé

Abstract : This dissertation aims to study organizational learning in a theoretical way. After the difficulties of actual approaches to apprehend this phenomenon have been studied, a theoretical framework is proposed that rests on the distinction between adaptive processes and processes that are founded on an intention (teleological processes). In order to achieve this, we question the cognitive foundations of learning and the main conceptions of rationality in economic literature. We then establish a new representation that partly rests on the contributions of contemporary cognitive sciences that allows us to apprehend different overlapping and structured learning levels. The second part of this dissertation is dealing with organizational learning in a more specific way. It is first shown that the coherence notion may help to distinguish ex post and ex ante coordinating devices and the logic of their evolutions. Then, the internal working of organizations is studied and the management capacity to modify organizational behavior is brought into focus. The last chapter analyzes the specific contributions of our theoretical framework in modern economics of organization and study the relation between the organizational structure and the learning performances.
