Smart cities and corporate culture

Research by Assolombarda sorts out the variegated world of smart areas and provides new food for thought regarding corporate culture

 

Smart cities  that is to say the future territorial horizon for an increasingly substantial series of urban conglomerations. A perspective made up of new technologies, digitisation of production, acceleration and dissemination of communications and information, connectivity, gentrification of urban and manufacturing spaces, increasingly widespread sharing of experiences and projects. And much more. A new environment to live and work in. Where, obviously, companies also find themselves totally immersed.

“Smart cities between concept and practice”, the last study report by Assolombarda addresses in a clear and concise manner precisely this scope of action that involves several entities at multiple levels of large urban centres. And one that needs to be well understood.

The research starts with the observation of the variety of smart cities already present in the world, but also with the development differences that characterise them, as well as the varied opinions concerning them.Including the strong criticism by some referring to the prevalence of technology rather than to human relations.

The report is then clearly organised into five sections and a final conclusion. After illustrating the motivations and objectives that sustain the theoretical and practical development of smart cities, the paper examines some of the key definitions of smart cities at academic and institutional level and then identifies some key factors of the smart city. The fourth part, on the other hand, explores the dimensions and contents of smart cities, starting with what has been developed by some of the leading producers of technologies and consulting companies. Certain examples of smart practices are used to reach a brief conclusion that highlights how much still needs to be done, especially in our country, in terms of versatility, pervasiveness and concreteness of smart cities.

“Smart cities between concept and practice”, written by multiple authors as part of the Assolombarda Study Centre, has the great merit of being short and clearly written.It also reorganises a complex, continuously evolving issue, such as smart  areas and territories, which runs the risk of being more fashionable than substantial. It is a good contribution to the growth of an increasingly conscious corporate culture.
