Research in Management or research for Management

Abstract : The study presents a monographic description based on a personal experience. We identify the three main steps : * The reasons that lead a researcher in management to become an action-researcher; * The action of transformation of the SME that welcomes the researcher; * The process that leads action-researcher to become the General Manager of the SME and daily mixes research and management as intellectual intrapreneur. Then we analyse the consequences of this process through two key questions: * Is action-research designed to lead research in Management or research for Management? * How to maintain the external validity of an action-research that transforms the researcher into an intrapreneur?
