Abstract: Innovation processes are uncertain, they concentrate a significant part of company's risks and are a source of tension. We explore the management of the innovation process and if some management tools can favor innovation. A quantitative survey of 169 companies is used to describe management control practices and tools employed during the innovation process, and to highlight the needs of firms. In the light of two streams of literature (the first in favor of the control of the innovation process, the other in disfavor), this study allows us to show that management tools are used and desired by companies to manage the innovation process. We are contributing to the current research that aims to reconcile management control and innovation activities. The data collected shows a convergence of tools and practices that the paradigm of inter-organizational mimetism helps us understand.
