Research on entrepreneurship has developed from observing the profiles of entrepreneurs and their motivations to analysing their strategic vision and behaviour. Our research work follows this framework and attempts to study managerial practices and core competencies of entrepreneurs both in terms of vision, optimization of resources and strategic formulation. A questionnaire survey of managerial practices has been administered to 90 Canadian and French SMEs from various industries and sizes. One the basis of a common interviewing instrument entrepreneurs have described their managerial practices, their decision making processes, their strategic options, their long term vision as well as the required competencies of entrepreneurship. This information has then been correlated with various levels of performance in order to obtain grids of successful entrepreneurial competencies.

Abstract : Following the exponential growth of the banking sector, it is highly strategic for Islamic banks managers to identify what determines the selection criteria for these institutions to customers, knowing that the Islamic banking system is characterized by forms of organization banks very different from traditional commercial banks, with specific missions and objectives, specific strategies and structures.

In this regard, our study aims to determine consumer behavior explanatory factors for the selection of an Islamic bank in Tunisia. This is specifically to test the moderating role of gender and age as discriminating variables in the decision. Data were collected from people in Tunisia. A questionnaire was developed and distributed. Data were analyzed with SPSS Our results show that customers consider several factors in their decision to choose an Islamic bank.

These factors are essentially the quality of service offered by Islamic financial institutions, trust and compliance with the "Sharia" Islamic Jurisprudence prescribing the prohibition of interest, the imposition of a religious tax, the blackout speculative, etc.

Specifically our results show that gender and age are two moderators between selecting an Islamic bank and the determinants observed. The originality of this work is based on the innovative nature of the observation of the role of moderator variables such as gender and age here. Keywords : factor analysis. Islamic Bank explanatory factors of consumer behavior moderating role of gender and age.

For example, the concepts of strategy, strategic management, general policy, strategic decision, and strategic process, among others, have become interchangeable. But, this interchangeability is not without consequences, positive and negative, on the evolution of the strategic discourse. There is a negative consequence, insofar as the interchangeability generates misunderstandings Martinet : and overall contradictory results Koenig , which leads to reservations about their replicability and generalisability. Many others see in this philosophical, epistemological, and ontological embroilment the instability factors of knowledge. However, for Lee G. Bolman and Terrence E.

Our paper deals with Local or National Systems of Innovation for Growth or Competitive Advantage of Firms and Nations, and more particularly with Innovation Ecosystems performance based on ethnomedothodology and interactionism approaches of innovation considering there is no hierarchy between technology and society as observed by Actor-Network Theory Calon, Latour, We tend to observe how creative ecosystems can be driven as Business Ecosystem, Innovation Clusters or Competitiveness Clusters and we analyse risks and failures of each of them to propose a composite model of business ecosystem including epistemic communities, common knowledge and common strategic intents. We conclude that, in one hand, Close Network and Bottom-up Initative as US clusters have to Transform Competition to Coopetition, Respect of the firms' borders, Preserve key skills, Preserve key technologies and property rights , Preserve the firms' borders, Respect cultural differences, Respect the management philosophy of each partner, and adopt a Fair sharing of value between partners.
