Abstract


Based on qualitative research, this article aims to study the entrepreneurial motivation of 12 Moroccan engineers who resigned to start their own business. The results of the textual analysis of the case allow to identify a set of push and pull motivation factors. The most important result of this study is the emergence of a new factor, the "degree of utilization of skills" as an entrepreneurial motivation. Also, the results of our research show the importance of the "role model" and "entrepreneurial self-efficacy" in the entrepreneurial decision. Given these results, several recommendations will be presented and the research track will be offered.

Author Keywords: Entrepreneurial motivation, turnover, job dissatisfaction, engineer.


Abstract: (french)


S’appuyant sur une étude qualitative, cet article a pour objet d’étudier la motivation entrepreneuriale auprès de 12 ingénieurs marocains ayant démissionné pour créer leur propre entreprise. La caractéristique la plus marquante de cette étude est l’apparition d’un nouveau facteur, le « degré d’utilisation des compétences », comme antécédent de la motivation entrepreneuriale. Les résultats de notre recherche permettent aussi de mettre en lumière le rôle déterminant du « role model », et le « sentiment d’auto-efficacité entrepreneuriale » dans la prise de décision entrepreneuriale chez les cadres-ingénieurs. Compte tenu de ces résultats, plusieurs recommandations seront formulées, et des pistes de recherches seront proposées.

Author Keywords: Motivation entrepreneuriale, départ volontaire, insatisfaction au travail, ingénieur.
