Dr Riccardo Vecchiato

Associate Professor

About

I am Associate Professor in Strategic Management. My research work focuses on environmental turbulence and the practices and techniques (e.g., scenario planning, technology roadmapping) that corporate managers and policy makers might use for coping with it. On these themes I worked with several national and regional governmental bodies in Italy and the EU, by contributing to elaborating, experimenting and transferring new foresight methodologies that helped decision makers to identify new critical technologies, settle their innovation priorities, design public procurement initiatives, and ultimately foster the competitiveness of local firms. In 2018 I secured a grant from Innovate UK within the Business Basics Fund Programme for my project "Technology foresight for growth and productivity: the design and implementation of a new foresight approach for UK SMEs". I am committed to transfer the output of my research and make a positive impact on students, business managers, and public decision makers. 

Research

My research aims to explore how corporate organizations and public governmental bodies cope with the growing uncertainty of the business environment. It focuses on strategic decision-making processes, organizational change and adaptation, and strategic foresight, and explores approaches like scenario planning, Delphi, and roadmapping. I carried out field research on prominent European and US firms that have established a corporate foresight unit and examined the impact of their foresight efforts on their long term performance. The output of my research is published in leading academic journals and contributed to an impact case study for REF2021.
