The core of Maurizio’s practice is the co-design of new solutions inside temporary Laboratories, where participants are involved in a rigorous and unusual collaborative process. This approach engages people at different levels: the collective and the individual, the philosophical and the cultural, the strategic and the operational. The focus of the work ranges from strategy formulation and leadership development to the co-design of new policies, products, services, and spaces. Clients include leaders of some of the most admired corporations, universities, and not-for-profit organizations in the world.
Maurizio serves as Adjunct Professor of Leadership and Innovation at the École des Ponts Business School in Paris and as a Member of the Faculty team of the “Leading And Building A Culture Of Innovation” program at Harvard Business School (Maurizio has conceived this program with Prof. Linda Hill.) He has taught in the Executive Education Department of the Harvard University Graduate School of Design (GSD), and served as Academic Lead for the “Leadership And Design Thinking” program and the “IndyProject” program (part of the GSD Advanced Management Development Program). In 2016, he was invited to the World Economic Forum Annual Meeting in Davos as a Forum Fellow.
Maurizio is co-author of the article “Unlocking the Slices of Genius in Your Organization,” published on the HBS Centennial publication Handbook of Leadership Theory and Practice (2010). The article was co-written with Professor Linda Hill (Harvard Business School), Greg Brandeau (CIO of Pixar Animation Studios), and Emily Stecker (HBS).
Before founding his practice, Maurizio served as director for the World Economic Forum Annual Meeting in Davos. He spent over a decade in management and consulting roles at international companies including Nokia, J.P. Morgan, and Accenture.
WHAT STUDENTS SAY
I was really convinced that the Global Executive MBA from École des Ponts was the best education I could get. It is one of the top three leading engineering schools in France, known on a worldwide basis and I was fully confident that doing an MBA at École des Ponts would create the right momentum to move up in my career.
Three months into the program, I was promoted to project manager within my previous company, the Capgemini Group. The program also helped me find my new assignment with Metanext at Société Générale. Furthermore, the E-MBA degree has improved many of my skills.
What’s most special about the Global Executive MBA is that it gives you a holistic view on business on top of being an expert. In my opinion, the business plan development course is one of the most important courses in the MBA program. It gives you a ‘ready-to-go’ kit if you’re planning to launch your own company. And even if you’re not planning to be an entrepreneur it is a great tool and asset to have for your internal and external customers and your investors.
