EADS, an unfinished transition. An understanding by the Economy of proximity (In French)

Abstract: Aeronautical group European EADS had many difficulties in 2006. The analyses converge to a \"problem of governance\". This report is not enough. We propose two complementary explanations: these difficulties of governance result from a too long distance, at the same time of a geographical and relational nature. We use the conceptual framework of the Economy of Proximity, which proposes a definition of the proximity with spatial and non spatial dimensions, to develop our argumentation. With geographical proximity, we distinguish institutional proximity and organisational proximity. First is understood as a relational availability, second as conforming and sharing institutions, third as a particular form of the preceding one which articulates political coordination and cognitive coordination.
