Enzo Bivona

Enzo Bivona is Associate Professor of Business Management at the Department DEMS (Political Science and International Studies), University of Palermo (Italy). He is also the Vice-President of CED4 System Dynamics Group.

Professor Bivona’s work focuses on the small business growth management, intellectual capital and corporate social responsibility. He uses the System Dynamics methodology to make explicit cause-and-effect relationships between relevant variables underlying the investigated business phenomena and to build simulation models to support decision makers to test and implement sustainable long term strategies. He has written several articles and two books on how to design and introduce planning and control systems in SMEs to influence the management and governance of such firms as well as, ultimately, their performance. He has also investigated extensively the area of intellectual capital investments and the underlying mechanisms that organisations can activate to improve business’ performance. Since 2000, Professor Bivona has been collaborating with private and public organizations to design and implement management control systems matched with System Dynamics simulation models to improve organization performance.
