Systèmes d'Information et Management


This paper presents the results of a preparatory research driven with a sample of thirty French nonprofit organizations. It emerges from this study that nonprofit organizations have original and specific IT practices in regards with their modes of governance. In order to respond to the large variety of the French nonprofit organizations, the author makes a proposition of typology based on the adopted modes of governance: partenarial, democratic, distributed. In every case, he analyzes the links between governance of the organization and governance of the Information System.
