This article investigates the different forms of dyadic working relationships between the French metropolises and regions to define their territorial attractiveness strategies. We explain the more or less involvement of dyadic working relationships through organizational and institutional levers used by territorial managers, adding the individual levers: professional identity. The originality of this research is the focus on relationships constrained by law. Indeed, we analyse four French metropolis-region cases and the findings make it possible to improve the continuum of dyadic working relationships substituting the "no relationship" form to the "interaction" form. Finally, we shed light on the role of professional identity and territory commitment, shifting from a linear approach to a dynamic one. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR]
Cet article a pour objectif de comprendre les différentes formes de relations inter-organisationnelles dyadiques entre les métropoles et les régions françaises, dans le cadre de la définition de leurs stratégies d'attractivité territoriale. Nous analysons le degré d'implication des relations inter-organisationnelles en fonction des leviers institutionnels et organisationnels que peuvent actionner les managers territoriaux, en ajoutant les leviers individuels à travers l'identité professionnelle. L'originalité de cette recherche tient au contexte des relations inter-organisationnelles contraintes par la loi. À travers l'étude de quatre relations métropole-région, les résultats nous permettent d'améliorer le continuum des relations inter-organisationnelles en substituant l'interaction à l'absence de relation. Enfin, nous mettons en lumière le rôle des leviers individuels, à travers l'identité professionnelle et l'engagement au territoire, passant d'une approche linéaire des relations à une approche dynamique.
