BUSINESS INNOVATION

bep is partner of SMEs aiming at innovating their market placement, ways of interactions with their clients and value chain management. • adherence of theproduct/service to client needs,

• adoption of the "pay for value" approach,

• development of internal practices to reach maximum competitiveness.

The same applies for public administrations, nowadays called to innovate service delivery practices (i.e., in health, environment, employment areas),in order to give new and better answers to changing needs. This includes  sustainability improvement, in a perspective of “public service competitiveness”.  This approach is coherent with the “capacity building” practices employed in the EU.

  • Development and deployment of innovative business models, exploiting the opportunities of digital business. 
  • Frontline projects of public service innovation
  • Mentoring programs and development of laboratories for innovation, in particular for public administrations

Activation projects. Each complex goal needs an activation  device, a governed "start-up project".

LOCAL AND REGIONAL NETWORKS

The development of the territories is based on the cooperation of various actors, public and private, and requires agreements among the actors involved and multilateral and multi-level cooperation in order to promote processes of growth, and competitiveness and active citizenship. In the approach proposed by bep, the territorial networks operate by promoting joint and integrated planning of local production systems and supporting the development of integrated actions for the competitiveness of SMEs.

Bep services, within local and territorial networks , are focused on the following areas:

Multilevel governance:

development and support of multi-level governance, joint programs and common systems of verification and progression, information platforms, open data enhancement, coordination of regional stakeholders, knowledge sharing.

Territorial competitiveness:

territorial analysis, impact assessment of territorial policies, benchmarking and benchlearning.

Intermodal Logistics:

support to integration processes between production districts and carriers operators, port communities and actors of the so-called "logistics districts".

Joint Management of Municipal Services:

assistance and management of change in the aggregation processes, mergers, joint management of municipal services.

ORGANIZATIONAL GOVERNANCE

The boundaries of the enterprises are increasingly wider and entrepreneurial activity is increasingly less linked to the organization of productive  factors. Management focus is shifting on the organization of the value chain.

Public organizations are progressively required to generate and offer better services at lower costs, and to innovate, with the increasing involvement of third parties (public, private and third sector actors), involved in ensuring the satisfaction of needs.

The relevance of steering each single activity is decreasing, and it is increasingly important to be able to interconnect parts and focus them towards the attainment of the common goal, ensuring a strategic and operational alignment.

Innovative value chains and  business models, both public and private, are increasingly characterized by autonomous nodes, capable of reciprocal self-regulation. This requires appropriate sets of processes and management systems. 

  • Development of tools for organizational integration
  • Strategic alignment
  • Performance management
  • Management and strategic control
  • Professional systems
