Proposal of an integration strategy of new design methods: elements for definition of the "methods" integrator role

Abstract : Research done in this thesis aims to improve the performance of design teams by the use of new methods. In our opinion, the present low rate of use of existing design methods as a primary link to a weakness in the definition of the integration process of these methods. We believe that the definition of an integration strategy of a design method, built upstream in the introduction to a firm, allows a gradual increase in the success rate of implementation projects of these methods. A state-of-the-art analysis presents three fundamental dimensions to new design-methods integration. Therein, we build the basis of our hypotheses and its linked strategy: the 3D process. Then, we propose (1) that the implementation of a Definition's tool strategy causes the individual appropriation, (2) that the implementation of a Demonstration strategy creates a validation of the method, and (3) that the implementation of a Diffusion strategy permits a Harmonization of collective practices in the whole organization. Our process has been to test two integration projects of new methods in Bourjois: integration of new models of the "Offer" brief and integration of Functionnal Analysis. In the last part of this document, we have concentrated on turning the 3D process "theoretical and abstract" into a dashboard "practical and operational", for the integrator of the new methods. The main function of this dashboard is to guide the integrator in the definition of the integration strategy of the new design method. It has been used by Bourjois to simulate the integration of a new method of risks analysis.
