This Programme is run in Paris and Madrid and allows students to get the CAPM/PMI certification in Project Management. In 2014, a partnership with industrial partners (Airbus Group and MI-GSO consulting) has been launched to provide state of the art project management knowledge.
Gérard has been a visiting professor at Maastricht University (Netherlands) and worked for more than 10 years as an expert to the French Ministry of Defence for management development. He has implemented a couple of corporate universities for major French and European companies and provides consulting services on pedagogical engineering and executive training.
He has carried out research programmes in the field of management accounting and management control for the banking sector and for the public administration. He has co-authored the reference book in France on “Contrôle de Gestion Bancaire” (6th edition in 2013). His current field of research addresses the potentialities of Public Private Partnerships for International Projects in emerging countries.
Modernizing public sector management: lessons learned from 20 years of reforms and change:
After more than 20 years of reforms designed to modernize French public sector management, what are the lessons learned? Gérard Naulleau investigates the success factors of the implementation of new management practices in the public sector, with a focus on the use of performance indicators, as promoted by the new budgetary procedure (LOLF). In 2003 he published an article on this topic in the academic review Politique et Management Public. He is currently working on a paper which formalizes the key success factors of performance reviews which have been launched in several French ministries.
Perspectives of Public Private Partnerships for infrastructure financing in emerging countries:
Are Public Private Partnerships (PPP) a viable option for financing infrastructures in emerging countries? A country like India has already experienced some large PPP based financing for infrastructures, with mixed results so far. In an ongoing research paper, Gérard Naulleau investigates the problems and issues foreign companies are facing for PPP financing schemes in emerging countries.
Collaborative strategies for leveraging client / supplier relationships:
Vertical collaborations - client/supplier partnerships - are increasingly used by companies to improve their value chain based strategies. In 2003 Gérard Naulleau published a book dedicated to the study of the collaborative engineering process created between Mercedes Car Group and key suppliers to launch the first Smart vehicle and the Smart brand. From this research, an academic article was also published in Gérer et Comprendre. More recently, Professor Naulleau has been facilitating the implementation of a collaborative approach to cost reduction in the supply chain of a major French retail Group.
