No 677: Stratégie de rupture basée sur des innovations radicales : Etude du cas de l'entreprise Salomon à la lumière de ses compétences et capacités organisationnelles

Bertrand MOINGEON and Emmanuel METAIS

Abstract: This paper concentrates on the analysis of organizational resources, competencies and capabilities as well as on the organizational architectures which facilitate their acquisition and use. On the basis of these concepts, the paper proposes an analysis grid which is then applied to a case study of Salomon, world leader in the winter sports equipment market. This grid is used to gain an understanding of Salomon's success in implementing breakthrough strategies based on radical innovations. Focusing on the study of internal resources leads to an investigation into Salomon's learning capabilities.
