Abstract

Il presente lavoro si propone di analizzare il fenomeno della leadership condivisa nelle imprese quotate italiane. In particolare, analizza la diffusione della dual leadership, ovvero la presenza di due amministratori delegati (co-AD), in contrapposizione alla tradizionale leadership unitaria. Recenti studi indicano che il fenomeno della leadership condivisa è in crescita a livello internazionale. La letteratura sottolinea anche che la nomina di co-AD è una delle possibili risposte organizzative per gestire efficacemente la crescente complessità esterna. La nomina di co-AD consentirebbe, infatti, all’impresa di ampliare la gamma di competenze ed esperienze manageriali disponibili. In questo lavoro, analizziamo tale fenomeno con riferimento alle imprese quotate italiane nel periodo 2005-2014. I risultati dello studio confermano la diffusione crescente della leadership condivisa, soprattutto nelle imprese familiari. Essi forniscono, inoltre, alcune utili indicazioni in merito alla selezione dei top manager e alla configurazione della leadership ai vertici delle imprese.
