    Ph.D. thesis: Genealogy of the low breakthrough of the Competitive Intelligence discourse in French Small Companies: Epistemological mistakes and operational proposals.

    Institutional, commercial and scientific discourses on Competitive Intelligence (CI), in France were studied. Over the last 20 years, these speeches aimed to help companies, local regions and countries to grow and to protect their assets. However, Competitive Intelligence discourse has not succeeded in meeting these requirements in particular in Smes. A more robust approach is suggested with a new discourse, a new theory, a new methodology and new cretiria. This new approach includes more human factors and Information Overload.

    Scientific Papers :Validation of information: The intellectual building of the « Staging of Information ». We can't validate information, we can just believe in references. The validating process misleads us. We suggest to Stage or to Direct the information scene with a list of criteria to select the information subject to acceptance. We decrease some analysis after the information and we increase the questioning prior to information.

    Foreknowledge and Intelligence: From Sun Tzu. Sun Tzu speaks about 'Foreknowledge'. However, before the information, Sun Tzu receives his order from his leader. We suggest a temporary an actionable strategic questioning or an agile questioning before information. Various models, concepts and methods coming from Information Behaviour are presented so that they can be used in Competitive Intelligence. Major human factors are presented to be taken into account in Intellligence discourses and practices.

    Competitive Intelligence discourses use and abuse of the understatements of the concept of Totality

    Intelligence discourses use and abuse of words and expressions like 'all, everything, complete'.

    Example: My boss wants it all. Let's try an avoid words like 'all' and we will improve interpersonal conversations between the boss and an analyst.

  7. Publications

    • Information Seeking: Competitive Intelligence explained to small and medium sized companies.
      Handbook to seek and search for information, when we don't have much time and not much money either, in Small and Medium Sized Companies.
    • Information Treating: Watching and information management explained to small and medium sized companies.
      Handbook to analyse information, when we don't have much time and not much money either, in Small and Medium Sized Companies.
  8. Other Research Activities

    Professional Paper:

    • Is information a good thing? Should we always accept it?
    • When the answer is yes, we should target and filter it, that is, we should accept it.
    • When the answer is no, we should keep a distance from it, that is, we should refuse it.
    • How to create and run a human network?
      Computing networks bring different types of information than real human networks. We present one way to create and to run a watching network.
    • Observations on the lack of method in web searching
      We need some real practical skills and some methods to search the web
    • Starting with collecting, watching information has not proved to be succesful. A new process to implement
      CI in Smes is presented.
    • The failure of Intelligence for business in small companies.
      CI discourse is a global failure. We need to change it. What are the main fragile factors that explain this Failure? What are the major robust factors that can help and build a new approach?
    • What shall we do when a leader wants to know everything? He does not know what he wants, clearly. He is already preparing himself to blame it on you is the task is not carried on completely? Some methods and tools are presented for such a situation.
    • From the strategic intention of a leader to a search plan: Observations and method
      A simple method, based on robust assumptions, to go from the strategic intention, towards a seeking plan

    MY RESEARCH STATEMENT 

    My research interests draw on experiences from Africa, specifically Ghana, to inform theoretical developments in entrepreneurship dynamics, motives of informal workers and the relationship between formal and the informal economy and socioeconomic development. These interests lie at the union of a variety of disciplines including anthropology, business/management, economics, philosophy and sociology. 

    I situated my work in Africa for the reason that the continent offers interesting prospects for theory development in informal economy entrepreneurship research. The continent’s economic conditions, colonial history, traditional beliefs and its late embrace of capitalist ideologies suggest that the texture of entrepreneurship in Africa would be distinctive from what pertains in the West. The African context, therefore, allows opportunity for developing new theories and challenging some of the existing ones. In this context, I have carried out several research projects on informal entrepreneurship in Ghana. I hope to challenge some of the taken-for-granted theoretical perspectives regarding informal work and the motives of informal entrepreneurship in Africa and the developing world as a whole.

    Doctoral Thesis: 

    Evaluating the relationship between the formal and informal economy in Ghana: A case study of Koforidua in the Eastern Region. 

    Drawing on data from a study of 80 households and three key institutions in Koforidua in Ghana, my thesis re-evaluates the relationship between formal and informal sectors in the so-called third world. The informal sector has been theorized as a residue (modernization theory) or as a forced alternative to formal economic activities, among others. The study calls into question these current theoretical formulations and proposes an alternative perspective to define the negotiations between the formal and informal economies. This proposed conceptualization relies on poststructuralism to outline the diverse character of the informal economy in contemporary society. 

    MBA research project, 2004: The role of rural banks in the disbursement of the poverty reduction fund in Ghana (1999 to 2003). 

    This project looked at the agentic role of Ghanaian rural banks in reducing poverty through the government’s poverty reduction fund. The project identified several opportunities for abuse in the mechanisms of implementation that impeded the achievement of the fund’s goals. The project called for a redesign of the poverty reduction effort through the rural banks. Specific recommendations included a grassroots-training program to educate target groups on matters of finance, accounting and reporting.
