Le pilotage des formes organisationnelles hybrides. (The Governance of Hybrid Organizational Forms. With English summary.)
Revue Economique, May 1997, v. 48, iss. 3, pp. 741-50
This paper analyzes "hybrid" organizational forms. The main idea is that hybrid forms are a distinctive governance structure, implemented in order to supplement incomplete contractual relationships developed among partners involved in joint transactions.
Based on recent and ongoing studies, the paper explores the key role of authority in the capacity of hybrid forms, under certain conditions, to allocating resources more efficiently than other arrangements.
The paper also examines the role of this mechanism in the sharing of rents among partners.
