In the field of management sciences, research and consulting have been linked for a long time. Indeed, action-research methodologies have been conceptualized, and are widely used to produce robust but also actionable knowledge.

In such a case, consulting interventions and research are conducted simultaneously. But consulting activities may also be conducted independently, especially when confidentiality constraints prevent any publications or when efficiency predominates on the methodological discipline of research. But even in such a case, resorting to researchers has sense only if they rely on their research results to propose an original approach to problems.

This is of course what I intend to do. This is why my consulting activities are focused on the management of innovation, and especially on a strategic and integrated approach of innovation processes and intellectual property. 


Internal resources

An entry is devoted to my research activities.

Beyond consulting services in the narrow sense, I have also achieved specific studies for various organisations. A specific entry is dedicated to those studies.

Finally, professional training activities have often close relationships with consulting.
