Out of the comfort zone; a winning leverage in Formula 1 too

No doubt these days leading up to the next F1 Spain GP have put #Bottas in the spotlight for his recent maiden F1 win. The speed and coolheaded approach he is shown on track is also linked to #effective #teamwork with his new #Mercedes technical group.

He has purposefully chosen not you have with him personnel from his previous #Williams team in order to fully and rapidly immerge himself within the culture and work approach of Mercedes. Seeking #nocomfortzone purposefully appears to pay off right from the get-go of the 2017 F1 season.

Ideas environments: drivers to entrepreneurship

They used to be called business ecosystems: clusters of cooperation and healthy competition within a certain geographical area. Today we talk about #ideasenvironments because everything has become much more subject to dynamic changes and disruptions.

Such environments are essential to any enterprise to survive and thrive; for this reason every business should actively participate in developing such physical and conceptual areas.

MANAGING KNOW-HOW AS AN ASSET FOR BUSINESS GROWTH.

New technologies, people’s visions and the integration of socio-cultural aspects are key drivers to international business growth not necessarily linked to large size companies. Today Small and Midsize Enterprises represent a powerful force of change in global business development from many perspectives.

Riccardo Paterni (moderator), Pierpaolo Vannucci (Vannucci & Associati), Stefano Bortoletto (Club Tecnologia e Passione), Nicola Scimeca (Ycom)

This has surfaced during the workshop “Business growth through leveraging on new technologies and know-how” held today as part of the University of Pisa International MBA. The master has reached the 8th edition and it features 34 participants representing twenty different nationalities with a very high level of multifaceted diversity.  Industry 4.0 concepts and practices; innovation focus developed through organizational networks; know-how developed in a production field leveraged upon also in other ones; international business development from socio-cultural perspectives; these are the topics outlined in the workshop by the four presenting organizations.

Marco Dell’Osso, Strategic Marketing Manager in Futura, (manufacturer of converting machinery for the tissue paper industry) has outlined concepts and practices of Industry 4.0 by pointing out the features of the latest projects the company is developing and utilizing and that it will develop in the future. 

Stefano Bortoletto, coordinator of the ‘Club Tecnologia e Passione‘ has illustrated the characteristics and purposes of this club of companies belonging to several fields and driven by common goals of innovation focus going also beyond technology into socio-cultural fields.

Nicola Scimeca and Mario Saccone, founders of Ycom have outlined how a company specialised in developing prototypes and services within the highest echelon of global Motorsport, has potential and capabilities (because of the unique technological and cultural characteristics of the field) to develop rapid and efficient innovation to the benefit also of other industrial sectors. 

Pierpaolo Vannucci, founder of firm Vannucci e Associati (part of an international network of Chartered Accountants and business development, MGI) has illustrated the development of a project bridging Italian technologically driven socio-cultural know-how in a progressive country as Morocco. 

Overall the workshop, moderated by Riccardo Paterni co-founder of Synergy Pathways,  has stimulated active interaction with the international audience and the many cultural, academic and professional perspectives present have stimulated analysis and debates. As part of the workshop process the companies have also strengthen their relationship of cooperation with the MBA network and the students have been offered opportunities to actively know about the companies the companies unique projects already.
