Main research topics
1.    Multi-project management and innovation project management (since 2003). Specific skills were acquired thanks collaborative research projects, conducted with companies such as Liebherr Aerospace Toulouse. Liebherr Aerospace Toulouse is an international aircraft system manufacturer. During the research, a multi-project management framework was developed and implemented. This framework structures the R&D and innovation process of the company, by linking both innovation project management and strategy.
2.     Improving innovation management practices in small business firms
This topic is based on a research project conducted with a non-profit organisation (Thésame). Thésame manages an important public innovation support programme, which is funded by the Rhône-Alpes Region and the European Union. It aims to improve innovation management practices in around 400 small business firms. My mission was to invent a new evaluating framework in order to check if the program is relevant according to the supported firms.
3.     Health management effectiveness (since September 2014)
This qualitative interpretative research, in collaboration with a PhD student, aims to develop an adapted framework in order to understand how the French health system has evolved due to the implementation of new public management, and how non profit organizations’ general managers might increase their effectiveness and maintain their values system at the same time.
Other significant activities
- In charge of the Master 1 Gestion de l’Entreprise Sociale et de Santé in the Toulouse School of management (Université Toulouse 1 Capitole), which aims to train expert practitioners of the health and social sectors so that they become general managers: implementing continuous improvement; enhancing the legitimacy and the visibility of the diploma; partners prospecting; significant improvement in the educational content in order to take the sharp change of the French healthcare system into account.
- Books written: for instance, three editions of Le Management de l’innovation, de la stratégie aux projets. These books both aim to update innovation management related academic knowledge and to provide a guidebook to practitioners.
- Evaluating international conferences papers (European Academy of Management, EURAM) and research projects (CIFRE-French Ministry of Research Training in Industry Convention for instance).
- Member of a community of practice, aiming to bring research and development managers closer together.
