Soutenir l'innovation par l'organisation d'actions collectives... ou comment nourrir les capacités d'agir entrepreneuriales de dirigeants d'entreprises. Le cas des opérateurs de services à domicile en région PACA.

Abstract : Our research aims to identify, for the PSP PACA our socio-economic partner, the possible ways to support the innovation activity of its members and the home-care services field players. We thus attempt to respond to the following problem: “In an institutionalized and compartmentalized field of activity, how can be supported, on a collective scale, the commitment and the capacity of home service operators to carry out entrepreneurial or intrapreneurial processes of innovation?” Firstly, based on an expanded literature review, we built a theoretical model of analysis allowing us to highlight all the cognitive, political, constructive and productive fundamental activities in the implementation of entrepreneurial projects intended to transform or strengthen a field. Thus, we rely on a project based view literature and on three sets of literature on the appropriation of human artefacts. Secondly, we mobilized this model of analysis in the in-depth reading of two cases of projects carried out by the PSP PACA, setting up collective actions. These two projects can be distinguished by their purpose (reinforcing the field vs transforming the field), and by their orientation (prescriptive or emancipatory). Mobilizing this analytical model allowed us to examine the different ways (organization, collective animation and individual support) by which the PSP team carried out theses collective actions, and their subsequent impact on the activities. It also allowed us to identify, in context, the elements that were appropriated or adopted by the participants while conducting their own projects. We then highlighted a certain number of methodological levers, on which the team of the cluster can rely to optimize - according to its aims and its orientations - the organization and the animation of such collective actions. We articulated these levers according to four different modalities: A) the modalities of the organization of a collective action, B) its modalities of animation, C) its capitalization procedures, D) the shape of the targeted results, in order to facilitate their mobilization by participants or project carriers. These results then led us to put forward three main axes of theoretical discussion: the first deals with the interest of integrating a "renewed" rational perspective into the literature on the appropriation of management tools to better understand the implications of their conception on their future uses. The second deals with the sensemaking activity observed during the collective actions and its potential roles. The third concerns the way by which material experimentation and sensemaking can nurture entrepreneurial capabilities of business leaders. Finally, we conclude our research by opening on three themes of reflection. The first asks how the collective actions organized by the PSP can help business leaders to build a network ambidextry. The second concerns how the formation of communities can bring value to sustain the dynamics driven by the pole. Finally, the third concerns the role to be played by the PSP PACA as a middleground actor to empower its own members.
