L’effet du dirigeant sur la performance de l'entreprise

Abstract : CEO effect on firm performance (or non-performance) is the point of many debates. According to the deterministic view, the CEO is constrained by internal and external forces and has no enough latitude for influence significantly the firm out comes. Other side, the leadership school considers that the CEO is the only one designer of the firm and is the responsible of the firm performance.These views are qualified by the managerial discretion which measures the margin flexibility theCEO has in order to make decisions to, significantly, differentiate the firm from others within a same sector. This thesis focuses on the CEO’s effect on the firm performance and the decisions that are operated in the firm. It deals with the major French CEOs who have the particularity to build powerful social networks. Chapter 1 is about the major French CEOs and draws the main features of these deciders. The phenomen on of endogamy observed during CEO succession and its impact on the firm performance are studied in Chapter 2. Chapter 3 offers an evaluation of the CEO’s impact on the firm performance and Chapter 4 measures the CEO’s power on decision about the acquisitions. This thesis confirms the idea that the economic power remains inside a closed executive cast
