La place de l'analyse qualitative comparée en sciences de gestion

Abstract : The Qualitative Comparative Analysis (QCA) proposed by Ragin (1987) innovates with respect to traditional qualitative and quantitative methods. By now, QCA is diffusing in several social sciences although its audience in management research remains confidential. In this article, we aim to identify the potential positioning of this method in the field of management. Consequently, we lead a quantitative analysis of methods mobilized in articles published in three leading journals. The results suggest that a niche is available for QCA. However, we stress the conditions of an adequate and cautious implementation of this method in management research.
