Director of Barilla Learning & Development since 2012 – and in L&D area for the 5 previous years –in charge of designing and deploying the current and future architecture of how to develop people in Barilla. This requires to balance three main areas of responsibility: leadership, know-how and change, with more than an eye to the company identity. Today’s main challenges are to understand how to adapt leadership principles to transformations, so to empower every single person in the company to make the strategy live, together with a continuous focus on quality as result of highly developed technical skills. How all this apply to digital transformation is fully under analysis and we’re adapting theories and experiences to our reality: sure there is not one only way. Before entering the L&D world, I’ve been working in the area of Packaging Development at Tetra Pak and then in Barilla, where I exploited a wider career landing to Business and Process Innovation and also to Marketing for a brief period. My academic background is the field of Engineering first and Social Sciences then. This rounded career helps me have a systemic approach. Help people out of the maze of complexity… with a smile: this is my personal and professional purpose. Continuously dedicated to sensemaking, learning and change: my latest keywords are “imagine, prepare, execute”.
