About the Book
The title of this book derives from my first choice to relocate abroad, in 1996, but aptly applies to the book contents.
Three parts: past, present, and future.
Past: a business autobiography to share how I developed my approach (on the business and political side)
Present: some documented observations on bureaucracy, used as case studies that could discuss broader future social changes
two specific cases are followed step-by-step (in most steps, with supporting documentation), to show the process adopted to identify the issue and attempt eliciting information and/or problem solving- as, with bureaucracies, the customer side can highlight issues, but both the communication, documentation, and resolution abilities mainly reside within the bureaucracy itself
one case is about the follow-up on a process, the other related to data privacy and data usage consent issues
Future: a glimpse on what we, in EU, are being invited to do within the framework of Next Generation EU (and what we, in Italy, are proposing).
Overall, this book is a short organizational study offering options and, hopefully, inspiring improvements.
The aim, more than sharing my experience in developing knowledge or the three cases (the "present" and "future"), is to share organizational analysis patterns that could be reused in other contexts.
As I used to do in my cultural/organizational change and IT for decision support activities since the 1980s (in Italy and other European countries, both EU and non-EU).
A book preview (containing the table of contents and the last chapter, on NextGenerationEU and Piano Nazionale di Ripresa e Resilienza is available on this page
