The Management Research Area is concerned with the study of management and innovation of companies, financial institutions and Public Administrations from a strategic and organizational point of view. Particular emphasis is placed on the study of the complex links and reciprocal influences between strategy, management and the use of technology, through analysis of the business processes both inside and outside the company. At the same time, research in this area is strongly oriented towards understanding the change management processes required when introducing strategic, organizational or technological innovation. The final goal of the research is to develop both innovative theoretical models and practical tools and methodologies to be applied and experimented in real cases. These topics are studied across industries and geographies, often trying to compare best practices or emerging models in various countries. Research is based on the integrated use of various methodologies, including case studies, action research, surveys, simulation and quantitative modelling.
