Définition d'une démarche de réduction des vulnérabilités des TPE / PME fondée sur le cycle de vie

Abstract : As every socio-economic entities, the Very Small Business (VSB) / Small Business (SB) faces various risks related to its activities (fire, loss of an important supplier, work accident, failure in a partnership, industrial espionage,…). If large companies have at their disposal dedicated tools to manage them all and to ensure their durability, VSB / SB do not. Armed with this knowledge, the Group AFNOR (the French national body for standardization) in collaboration with the Center for research on Risks and Crisis of Mines ParisTech initiated a joint reflection to give an answer to this situation.This thesis presents the basis and the design of an approach for global risks mastery within VSB / SB. Obtained results of course concern to VSB / SB owners but also to all “intermediary actors” (businesses associations, (regional) chamber of commerce and industry, trade chambers, insurers,…) who accompany and support them in their risks management initiatives.It rests/is based on the definition and the construction of a diagnostic tool which allows to identify and to reduce the vulnerabilities of VSB / SB when they are confronted to their major risks. For this, the characterization of VSB / SB vulnerabilities led to highlight their transitory characteristic through the lifecycle concept. Once described, their modeling results in identifying criteria which explain variations of the nature and / or severity of damages when an event occurs. These criteria are the main constituents of the diagnostic tool. The latter allows to point the weaknesses of the enterprise in order to bring adapted improvements proposals/offers (training, specific diagnostic or self-diagnostic, coaching, consulting, sensitization,…).
