ENTERPRISE MANAGEMENT & EVOLUTION
TEACHING MEMBER RESPONSIBLE FOR THE COURSE:
Gianpaolo Abatecola, PhD., Research Fellow (Tenured Assistant Professor) in Management
Weekly Office Hours: to be checked on the web site
PRE-REQUISITES FOR THE COURSE:
How do firms evolve? What is the role of environmental determinism? Does managerial
voluntarism count? How do the mechanisms of co-evolution between firms, markets and
country systems work? It is a matter of fact that Charles Darwin’s The Origin of Species (1859)
has been representing a catalyst publication also for the development of the management
literature. Although the contribution of Darwinism to understanding how firms and countrysystems evolve remains controversial to date, a number of heterogeneous research
perspectives have been developed within the organizational evolution field. On this basis, this
course aims at explaining how the enterprises’ governance and management evolve under
uncertainty in dynamic and complex environments. The course is divided into the following
Section I: Enterprise Evolution
Section II: Enterprise Management
At the end of the course, the students:
1. will have been provided with ideas on how organizational adaptation works and how
enterprises and their competitive environments mutually co-evolve.
2. will have been provided with the fundamentals of how the enterprises’ strategy can be
implemented through their life cycle.
The teaching approach is mainly research led, but with a strong practitioner input through
‘live’ case studies also.
