Measuring sustainability oriented innovation

Type of project: Dissertation

Supervisor 1: Antonella Moretto

Date: 7 October 2021

Email: antonella.moretto@polimi.it

Authors: 2

Tutor: Raffaella Cagliano

Contacts: Antonella Moretto

Content / Work description: Sustainability represents currently one of the main source of innovation for companies. Traditional methods for measuring innovation are not necessarily applicable or appropriate to measure the appropriateness of sustainability oriented innovation. The thesis aims at identifying new approaches and new methods to assess the validity of sustainability oriented innovation. The thesis will be realized through a structured literature review and the conduction of in depth case studies.

The role of technologies to pursue Sustainability Oriented Innovation

Type of project: Dissertation

Supervisor 1: Antonella Moretto

Date: 7 October 2021

Email: raffaella.cagliano@polimi.it

Authors: 2

Tutor: Raffaella Cagliano

Contacts: Raffaella Cagliano

Content / Work description: In the domain of sustainability oriented innovation, there are several enablers presented in order to make innovation successful and to reach expected results. Among all the possible enablers, technologies are playing a more and more relevant role: the literature stream about tech for good is increasing in relevance over the years, but the potential contribution of the technologies could be broader and more exhaustive. The goal of this thesis is to develop a framework to formalize the different kinds of contributions that technology could offer to enable sustainability oriented innovation. The thesis will be realized through a structured literature review and the conduction of in depth case studies.

Deadline: 31-10-2021

Work Location: Department of Management Engineering (DIG)

The role of collaborations for Sustainability Oriented Innovation

Authors: 2

Tutor: Raffaella Cagliano

Contacts: Antonella Moretto

Content / Work description: If companies want to move towards a really sustainable approach up to reach a system building level of sustainability, they are necessarily called to collaborate with formal and informal stakeholders. The thesis aims at investigating specific innovation networks, with a system building approach, to understand which are the main critical success factors to operate, which are the organizational methods in place, which are the enablers to reach the desired results. The thesis will be realized through a structured literature review and the conduction of in depth case studies.

The structure of innovation process for sustainability

Type of project: Dissertation

Supervisor 1: Antonella Moretto

Date: 7 October 2021

Email: raffaella.cagliano@polimi.it

Authors: 2

Tutor: Raffaella Cagliano

Contacts: Raffaella Cagliano

Content / Work description: Sustainability represents currently one of the main source of innovation for companies. The critical question is if the process, the approaches and the measure of “traditional” innovation are still valid also in the sustainability domain or if it is necessary to re-adapt or re-design these, consistently with the peculiarity of the topic. This thesis is aiming at identifying the structure of the process of sustainable innovation and at addressing how to adopt participatory approach of innovation (e.g., design thinking) to sustainability. The thesis will be realized through a structured literature review and the conduction of case studies.

Content / Work description: Il progetto di tesi ha l’obiettivo di indagare le modalità di adozione di sistemi di identità digitale da parte di aziende afferenti a settori come il finance, le telco e l’utility, in cui il riconoscimento dell’utente finale è un processo estremamente critico. Verranno approfonditi le esigenze e i driver che spingono le aziende verso una più matura adozione di questi sistemi attraverso una metodologia qualitativa (tramite interviste) e quantitativa (survey). L’obiettivo finale è strutturare una roadmap cross-settoriale che definisca il percorso di maturità del settore privato nell’ambito dell’identità digitale. Il progetto può essere portato avanti da uno o due tesisti.

Content / Work description: Il panorama delle startup HR Tech rappresenta una grande fonte di novità in ambito HR, un mondo costituito da realtà giovani e guidate da un’idea di business fortemente tecnologica. L’espansione delle startup HR Tech e la loro crescita nei diversi mercati rappresenta un fenomeno affascinante da analizzare, data la portata di innovazione sia della loro offerta che del loro modello di business e organizzativo. Spesso l’innovazione parte proprio da loro, in quanto attori capaci di sperimentare e caratterizzati da una cultura più aperta, agile e flessibile. Nuove tecnologie, metodologie innovative, prodotti e soluzioni digitali, servizi su misura e personalizzabili a seconda delle esigenze, l’offerta delle startup HR Tech nel panorama internazionale è molto variegata. Tutte queste soluzioni sono in grado di fornire supporto alle Direzioni HR nella gestione dei processi di loro competenza (dalle attività di ricerca e selezione, alla formazione aziendale, all’erogazione dei servizi welfare e wellbeing), ridefinendo in ottica più ingaggiante e personalizzata l’esperienza delle persone e rispondendo efficacemente alle esigenze del business.

Modelli organizzativi agili: caratteristiche e stadi di evoluzione

Type of project: Thesis

Supervisor 1: Mariano Corso

Email: martina.mauri@polimi.it

Co-Supervisor: Martina Mauri

Contacts: Martina Mauri

Content / Work description: Il cambiamento oramai è sempre più parte della quotidianità delle organizzazioni, complici la trasformazione digitale che porta a innovare prodotti e servizi a ritmi sempre più veloci mettendo costantemente in discussione processi e competenze, la complessità dei mercati sempre più globalizzati e fattori di discontinuità come la crisi emergenziale legata al COVID-19. Se tutto sta cambiando dentro e fuori le organizzazioni, anche gli stessi modelli organizzativi devono evolvere. Per rendere le persone e l’organizzazione resilienti e capaci di vivere in un contesto in continua trasformazione è necessario uscire dalla propria comfort zone e abbracciare nuove modalità organizzative guidate da principi agili. Ancora poco chiaro è come implementare queste nuovi modelli con successo nella pratica. L’obiettivo della tesi sarà quello di indagare questo fenomeno realizzando studi di caso approfondite con le aziende.

Co-Supervisor: eleonora gheduzzi

Contacts: cristina masella

Content / Work description: Il progetto di tesi si inserisce in una progettualità in corso sulla provincia di Cremona volto a realizzare una serie di interventi a supporto dei caregiver di soggetti fragili non autosufficienti. Il progetto nasce da una collaborazione tra Università Cattolica (psicologia e socilogia)  e Politecnico di Milano e vede coinvolto il gruppo di ricerca sanità del DIG, per la parte più specifica di comprensione dei bisogni e di supporto alla coproduzione di servizi. La tesi si concentrerà sulla mappatura degli stakeholder del territorio per raccogliere le esigenze ancora insoddisfatte e sullo sviluppo di un modello di risposta il più possibile partecipato e allargato. Dal punto di vista teorico la tesi si inserisce nel filone di ricerca che investiga la co-produzione in una prospettiva di "public service ecosystem"  (Dudau, Glennon and Verschuere, 2019, Petrescu, 2019; Osborne, 2021, Strokosch and Osborne, 2020). Dal punto di vista operativo il/la candidata avrà l'opportunità di inserisi in un gruppo di lavoro multidisciplinare, di collaborare attivamente con attori pubblici e del terzo settore della provincia di Cremona e di partecipare alle attività di codesign. Punto di forza di questa tesi è  coniugare approfondimento teorico e progettualità sul campo.  

Deadline: 31-10-2021

Work Location: Milano e Cremona

Additional Information: Lavoro che è possibile sviluppare da soli o in coppia
