Within Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna (SSSA), the Istituto di Management (IdM) is active in the field of management in the context of private and public organizations as support to a renewed entrepreneurship, in a synergetic perspective, among business, institutions and research.
IdM is the result of a long-term cultural project with particular reference to the management of innovation, sustainability and health.
During the last decade it has moved its focus towards:
– innovation in its fourfold dimension, technological change, organizational change,
cultural change, political and institutional change
– a strong interdisciplinary approach (first of all, within SSSA)
– the method of action research
– interest in both qualitative and quantitative evidence in support of decision making processes.

The Italian public administration is often used as an example of the so-called implementation gap: ambitious and technically advanced projects tend to betray the expectations during the implementation phase, producing lower impacts than potential ones. The provision of health services and, in particular, the successful implementation of a mass vaccination campaign against Covid-19 may well fall within this generalised trend.
