Restarting after the pandemic? Public Administration can play a central role and become the lever for relaunching the entire country system. SDA Bocconi School of Management is strongly committed to this goal, and today launches the Call to Action "VALORE PUBBLICO: la Pubblica Amministrazione che funziona" (PUBLIC VALUE: Public Administration that works), conceived in partnership with Gruppo Editoriale GEDI and sponsored by the Ministry of Public Administration, ANCI and UPI Associations.
The initiative is part of SDABocconi4GOV a project through which SDA Bocconi provides 50 years of experience in the public sector to promote the processes of change required by the PNRR towards a more modern and competent PA.
“Valore Pubblico” intends to encourage innovation and modernisation in the public sector, enhancing the "best practices" that allow citizens and businesses to have more efficient, inclusive and up-to-date services at their disposal.
"With these projects, SDA Bocconi School of Management further strengthens its commitment to serving the country by focusing on training and developing the skills of the executive class and promoting, at the same time, the processes of the modernisation of the PA" - said Giovanni Valotti, Full Professor of the Department of Social and Political Sciences of the Bocconi University and member of the Award Committee that will evaluate the projects that best meet the distinctive criteria indicated in the Call for participation -. “The objective of the Call to action is to stimulate and promote the sharing of good practices in the logic of the inspiring principles of the PNRR for the reform of the public sector. The focus that generates change, from SDA Bocconi's point of view, is the development of human capital through organisational and managerial innovation".
An orientation that is completely in line with the “ABC for restarting” of the PNRR which indicates three guidelines for the reform of the PA: access (recruitment), good administration (simplifications and digitisation) and skills (profiles, careers and training).
In detail, there are 10 categories to which the candidate administrations must refer to present their projects: sustainability, digitisation, diversity and inclusion, work and economic/business development, new fragilities, sport, culture and tourism, innovation and creativity, simplifications, management innovations. The level of innovation of the project, the results obtained and the reproducibility in other contexts will be taken into consideration in the evaluation criteria.
Public administrations wishing to participate in the initiative can apply between 13 December 2021 and 28 February 2022 by filling out the participation form at the following link and attaching the required documentation.
The selected administrations will participate in a public event that will take place by June 2022.
