Assuming agreement on the aim of constructing better and more responsible enterprises, four questions emerging in the analyses by Luciano Gallino on the Olivetti model are here addressed. Is the main and best way to redefine firm goals? Which type of bridge may connect firm governance and the organization of work? Is there any viable model of economic democracy in a world with mobile human resources? Which lessons can be learnt from Olivetti’s approach, even if admittedly ‘octroyé’, to organizational change?

Keywords: Social responsibility, firm governance, economic democracy.
