Full argumentsThe first part (4 CFU) of course is divided in two blocks, and it’s characterized by an increasingly active-learning oriented approach, along a continuum that starts with concepts and notions and ends with a purely inductive learning approach. The first block is based on face-to-face classes where students are expected to contribute with their own experience and intuition to the class discussion, the second block blends theoretical insights, instruments and practical exercises and case studies, and the last block is mainly delivered through concrete cases and with the interaction with guest speakers. Throughout the course, students are expected to contribute actively to the learning process. The first block: - Introduction: definition, the process of formulating a strategy, context framework; - Industry analysis: the 5 competitive forces model; factors influencing the competitive intensity and dynamics; - Basic strategies: basic strategies, characteristics and requirements; the risks of these basic strategies; - Analysis of competitors: the identification of the potential competitive profile; previsions on the future competitive behaviours; - Strategic innovation management: inventions and innovations, the innovation process, profitability of innovation, the appropriability of innovation rents, strategies of exploitation; - The business growth: growth strategies, intensive, integrative, diversification; advantages and disadvantages of vertical integration; concentric and pure diversification; growth forms. The second block: - Strategic public and non profit management. The first introductory set of sessions aims at providing a common vocabulary and to understand the different views on of the role of strategic public and non profit management across time and space. Well-established theories and scientific debates about the nature and evolution of public and non profit management are presented in this block, as well as a set of ‘archetypes’ that will allow students to read and understand the functioning dynamics of public administrations and non profit organizations, as well as the interaction and overlap between strategy and public policy. The second part (2 CFU) of course is divided in two blocks: • History and introduction to business ethics, ethical issues in business; • corporate social and environmental, accountability and reporting.

AbstractThe course is a half-year one and it is divided in two modules. The contents of the two modules are tightly connected and will be developed partially in each of the two modules. The modules share the same teaching methods and examination process. The course aims to present the characteristics of family firms with the purpose of developing the students' ability to identify and analyze the strengths, weaknesses and the typical operating requirements of such firms, and to propose appropriate responses to the specific managerial demands of these enterprises. The course focuses on the strategy of family businesses, the way they are organized in terms of structure, processes, roles and responsibilities, on their operational mechanisms, such as planning and control, and corporate governance systems, on fiscal and policy issues and family firms’ value. In consideration of the importance of these aspects for the development and success of family businesses, a particular attention will be devoted to family succession and company growth management.
