Governance through merit

A book collects the best experiences of good corporate management

Merit, above all. Merit for real, identified with care and fairness. A method that should be implemented at all corporate levels, but that needs to be well understood, so as not to disrupt good practices to introduce something that might have little to do with actual merit.

It is around these concepts that Silvia Stefini’s recently published book La governance meritocratica. Storie di talento e d’impresa sostenibile (Meritocratic governance. Stories about talent and sustainable enterprises) revolves.

The author starts by posing some questions: how, for example, can one distinguish between good or bad governance? Or, what are the qualities and requirements of a properly competent board of directors? Or, again, how can we really unleash all positive potential of those at the helm of a company?

Beginning with the accounts collected by the Forum della Meritocrazia association, the book attempts to provide concrete answers to these questions, taking as examples people and experiences from the Italian economic sphere, and thus from both family businesses and major international leaders. Thus, the pages curated by Stefini feature the stories of entrepreneurs and managers from Deloitte, Santa Margherita Wine Group, Zambon and many other businesses. A number of well-reasoned accounts highlighting the elements that really determine meritocratic corporate management, elements that range from a genuine willingness to pursue a shared objective to the daring required to separate ownership and corporate goals, from true executive guidance of management to methods for raising capital, from an effective ability to attract talent to an actual care for the environment and the company’s well-being. Thus, courage, sensitivity and resilience stand out as the real competitive elements in enterprises that do not merely want to focus on profits and losses – and Silvia Stefini’s work covers all of this.
