Studies currently under way

Industrial dynamics

This project aims to improve our knowledge of the role played by demand forces in shaping industrial evolution. We particularly address situations where it is impossible to understand the industry evolution by analyzing the purchases made by the different types of customers. To address these situations, we adopt an explanatory approach based on the concept of demand profile. The demand profile is a particular configuration of heterogeneous motives whose levels evolve over time.

Making the removal of space debris a business opportunity

This project aims to develop an economic model based on the concepts of public economics and environmental economics. The model will be developed and calibrated empirically using data from the sector. The primary goal of this study is to quantify the key variables for placing a value on the removal of debris. In a second step, the model developed could be used to create simulations to measure the economic impacts of various proposed solutions.

New players and small satellites

This project aims at analyzing the arrival of new entrants supplying smaller satellites compared to traditional large satellites supplied by incumbents.
We use the innovator’s dilemma framework to analyze the threat of new entrants.

Influence of supply chain dependence on corporate efficiency in a multiple actor context

The importance of investigating the influence of supply chain dependence on corporate efficiency in a multiple actor context is seen from the fact that the typical industrial company spends 50 to 85 per cent of its turnover on purchased goods, such as raw materials, components or semi-manufactured goods. Within the aerospace industry, in order to be more profitable, this ratio has also increased over the last decades, making major aerospace manufacturers more and more dependent on their supply chain. In parallel, companies’ obsession with speed and costs causes supply chain to break down particularly during the launch of new products and a single disruption of any one entity in a supply chain affects the entire chain. Consequently, supply chain management and integration become highly critical to company success, since problems far down in the supply chain can cause delays that ripple across the industry.

Influence of first adopters in the diffusion of innovation

The objective of this project is to study the influence of first adopters in the adoption of innovations by the bulk of adopters. Our preliminary results indicate that first adopters have a complex influence on diffusion. On the one hand, first adopters seem to be able to hinder the diffusion of innovations. On the other hand, we also observe that first adopters have a positive influence on diffusion dynamics.

Talent management in the long term: paradoxes and opportunities

Talent management is a way of adapting a company’s human resources to its strategic objectives. Talent management is based on a long-term vision: the planning of a company’s human resources with a view to its future development. However, businesses have to cope with change: changing technologies, new trades, modified relationships with the companies in its environment, and altered conditions of competition, among others. How can talent managers, human resources staff or line managers combine agility and human resource planning?

Our research aims to clarify the paradoxes and opportunities of talent management to enable all stakeholders in the company to benefit in the long term.
