The School

The adventure of building the progress of one's own land with the strength of one's values

A fifteen year long road and a single reference: excellence

Supporting professionals and entrepreneurs in corporate innovation processes, support managers in developing their organizations, facilitate the entry of young graduates into the labour market, promote the culture of corporate responsibility to assist the Government and sustainable development of our territories and our community are the objectives of LUM School of Management, especially in this time of crisis that forces everyone to a strong awareness and consistent behaviour.

Understanding that this is not only an economic crisis. If so, it would probably be already over. Before being an economic crisis it is a crisis of identity and values, politics and social and cultural policies of Western countries. The crisis are four, of which  the economical would paradoxically be the easier to deal with if there weren’t the other three.

Consistently with this assumption, we have to abandon the technical culture, that has deluded us telling us that with technique, maybe financial , you could create a modern richness able to satisfy any need,  instead this only brought  to affirm an individualistic, unequal model of society.

The exact opposite of the humanist culture that has always been the basis of major transformations in Europe, and that today we must recuperate in its essence to be able to recompose and orient the diversity toward a common good which should not only be declared but also made.

We must therefore think about our framework of values and cultural concepts such as social cohesion, community membership, shared identity, governance, and sustainable development of communities and territories, public-private partnership will be the cultural and operational challenge for decision-makers and organizations.

Common values, shared vision, the system of thought, the importance of the individual and groups for learning and the development of awareness, generosity and trust, social consensus; all entrepreneurs and managers with not be able to cope without these important aspects, they must all share and make an effort with the people who work with them.

It is the goal towards  the new humanism, through which it will be possible to encourage the involvement of individuals, increase their ability to learn, encourage the development of free information flows and based on the desire to improve themselves by improving business results,  it is the shared identity that allows  to enhance talents. The professionalism, of course, but also motivation, adaptability, creativity, the ability to be innovative and cooperative, simply passion.

Companies will be called upon to operate in the logic of relations and not just trade, to develop competences for the understanding and the Government of change, for trading and interacting with internal and external stakeholders, for resolving unforeseen problems like technical-economic but also social, for comparison and for the solution of culture problems emerging  and for the management of community dynamics.

For this, the main challenge that entrepreneurs, managers, public leaders have today is to think and propose new organisational and management models based on assumptions about the innovative relationships and human behaviour:  thinking  and proposing more efficient systems and organizations leveraging on the best part of the people instead of trying to optimise the worst.

All this because today nobody can delude themselves that we do old things in a new way or new things so old. Today people have to have the motivation and the ability to lead their organisations to do new things in new ways.
