Je suis disposé à diriger des étudiants au doctorat ou au mémoire selon une méthodologie de recherche variée. En effet, les pluralismes théorique et méthodologique sont des richesses en Administration Publique. Les approches expérimentales ou quasi expérimentales, les méthodes qualitatives, quantitatives ou mixtes peuvent jeter des éclairages différents et complémentaires sur les phénomènes de la gestion dans le service public. En termes de sujets, je suis disponible pour diriger des travaux de recherche (thèses de doctorat ou mémoires de maîtrise) portant sur des enjeux de management public.

If you want to deal directly with matters of pressing international, national and local concern, then study public management. If you would like to do field research that involves meeting dedicated, highly skilled professionals working for a fairer, less hazardous and more caring society, then study public management. If you are interested in where all the taxpayer’s money goes, and how people are held accountable for its spending (or not), then study public management. If you are interested in the causes and effects of government corruption, and wonder why some countries are evidently far more prone to this cancer than others, then study public management. I you know more about the largest and most powerful organizations that have existed for the last hundred years, then study public management.” (Pollitt 2016, p. xi)

Je préconise un style d’encadrement actif, serré et centré sur l’apprentissage du métier de chercheur. Nous aurons des rencontres fréquentes dès le début de vos études. Des progrès sont attendus de votre part chaque session. La majorité de mes travaux ont porté sur la mesure et la gestion de la performance et la satisfaction des citoyens, avec un accent sur l’étalonnage. Les questions sur ce qui amène les décideurs, analystes, gestionnaires et citoyens à comparer des résultats et des pratiques dans le temps et avec d’autres juridictions sont celles qui guident mes réflexions. Mes travaux ont été publiés dans des journaux scientifiques en Administration Publique tels que Public Administration Review, Public Management Review, International Public Management Journal, Public Administration, American Review of Public Administration, Administration & Society, Public Money & Management, Public Performance & Management Review, et International Review of Administrative Sciences. Des étudiants de l’ENAP au 2e et 3e cycle qui ont coopérés avec moi ont vu leurs travaux publiés dans Canadian Public Administration, Administrative Theory & Praxis, Public Organization Review, International Journal of Public Administration, Revue d’études canadiennes, revue Gouvernance, Organisations et territoires.


I am looking forward to guiding doctoral or master’s students according to a varied research methodologies. Indeed, methodological and theoretical pluralism is ones of Public Administration’s strengths. The experimental or quasi-experimental research designs, as well as the qualitative, quantitative or mixed methods are able to enlighten, in a varied and complementary manner, the reality of public service management. In terms of subjects, I am ready to direct research projects (doctoral or masters’ theses), which relate to public management.

I envision an active style of student supervision, which is based on the learning of the profession of researcher. We will have frequent meetings from the start of your course program. Progress is expected on your part during each session. The majority of my research centers around the performance management and measurement, and citizen satisfaction, with an emphasis on benchmarking. The questions that motivate decisionmakers, analysts, managers and citizens to compare results and practices across time periods and other jurisdictions are at the heart of my research. My research has been published in scientific journals in public administration such as Public Administration Review, Public Management Review, International Public Management Journal, Public Administration, American Review of Public Administration, Administration & Society, Public Money & Management, Public Performance & Management Review, and International Review of Administrative Sciences. ENAP graduate students that have cooperated with me have published their works in Canadian Public Administration, Administrative Theory & Praxis, Public Organization Review, International Journal of Public Administration, Revue d’études canadiennes, revue Gouvernance, and Organisations et territoires.
