A different approach to business-government inter-action.

We need a fundamental reappraisal how to achieve today the Common Good, by companies and by governments. In the new industrial revolution, the real challenge is to bridge the fault lines from previous decades between business, politics and society. This requires an innovative approach in corporate strategy and in public governance.

Innovative corporate management anticipates policy and regulatory developments, enters into a permanent dialogue with civic society and builds business opportunities out it. Governments must seek to align public interests through new forms of collaboration with business and civic society. Certainly in Europe, the role of the EU institutions and of governments in markets will increase in order to ensure the future of our social-economic model aimed at welfare for all, but this will require systemic innovations as well. Having worked in the public and private sectors, my objective is to contribute to such a new approach that will help companies understand how to gain long term competitive advantage through new ways of managing their political and societal environment, and to develop constructive dialogue with governments and European institutions in order to help to innovate public governance systems.

Thank you for your interest and looking forward to your feedback.
