Le rôle des communautés de pratiques et de leur coordination dans le développement et le déploiement des innovations dans une multinationale

The literature highlights the role of communities of practice (CoPs) in the creation and sharing of tacit knowledge and anchored. However, their impact on the innovation process remains the subject of debate. We strive to better understand the role of CoPs in innovation at the scale of a multinational firm. From the in-depth case study of an innovation developed in a subsidiary and deployed in another, we show the critical role of the joint involvement of two different types of CoPs, one driven and supported by the top management and the other autonomous and spontaneous. We specify the modes of coordination between these CoPs that have supported the development and deployment of innovation in the MNC. [googletranslate_en]
