Dear all,

IMT Mines-Albi and Strasbourg University are currently looking for a PhD =
candidate who will work in the context of the KAAT project.
The main keywords of the thesis are: risk management, partnership, =
alliance, project, innovation, decision making. More details in the =
attached file.
Please transfer our message to your network and students.
The expected starting time is October 2018.
First contact with Fran=C3=A7ois Marmier (CV, cover letter and at least =
one letter of recommendation): marmier@mines-albi.fr.=20

Kind regards,

Fran=C3=A7ois Marmier & Didier Gourc

Risk and innovation in big projects.

Application to a European project in the aeronautics field.

Keywords: partnership, alliance, project, innovation, decision making, =
risk.

Topic: The more complex the deliverable of a project, the less a single =
firm has all the skills or the means to carry out its development alone. =
A major consequence is that alliances must be formed to continue the =
project.
Among the things put in place to support these alliances, quality and =
risk management plans are implemented to maximize the chances of success =
of the projects.

However, despite this, alliances face difficulties in achieving their =
goals. More than 60% of NPD alliances fail (Bruner and Spekman 1998) due =
to difficulties of communication between partners, hidden objectives or =
missing skills…
This work will focus on the most common causes of failure. The =
contribution of the thesis will be to establish a repository of causes =
and to propose solutions to help avoid them. The student will have to:

1) Characterize and model the dimensions to watch with relative =
vigilance: – Activities: innovative tasks, link of antecedence…
– Actors: ability to communicate partners, complementarity…
– Risks: dependencies between risks, management strategies…

Create a taxonomy of sources of risk, considering the nature of the =
project itself, links among partners, and the actors involved. The =
taxonomy will related different types of risk to different sources of =
risk

2) Develop tools / models / methods to:
– simulate / evaluate the project, its network of stakeholders and the =
level of risk.
– help in the decision making (choice of the best strategies of =
treatment of the risks, the actors…).

This thesis work will take place in the context of the Erasmus+ project =
Knowledge Alliance in Air Transport (KAAT), No =
588060-EPP-1-2017-1-RO-EPPKA2-KA (www.kaat.upb.ro).

Other details: The working time will be shared between Albi and =
Strasbourg (in France) and it is expected that the research will involve =
travel in Europe to meet with collaborators, members of the Erasmus+ =
team, and for interviewing members of the industry.
Competence is required in programming and simulation. Fluency in English =
is mandatory. Expected starting time: October, 1st 2018.

Supervision: For IMT Mines Albi, CGI, Franc=CC=A7ois Marmier and Didier =
Gourc. For the Strasbourg University, BETA (UMR 7522 CNRS), Ioana =
Deniaud and Robin Cowan.

Application : First contact with Franc=CC=A7ois Marmier (CV, cover =
letter and at least one letter of recommandation): marmier@mines-albi.fr
