GV-Executive celebrates 20th anniversary with editorial revamp and special sustainability section
The year 2022 is a milestone for GV-Executive, which is celebrating its 20th year of disseminating management knowledge. Published by Fundação Getulio Vargas’ Sao Paulo School of Business Administration (FGV EAESP), it is a management, strategy and culture journal for managers. It discusses ideas and trends, using accessible language, written by academic and business leaders.
The first edition of this year has some new features to deepen this mission. “In this edition, we are launching a new editorial format, with a revamped look and articles that delve deeply into current themes such as transparency, diversity, digital transformation and open innovation, presenting scientifically based paths for managers to deal with the typical complexity of the zeitgeist,” says Adriana Wilner, the journal’s deputy editor.
One of the journal’s characteristics is its special sections, whose articles address emerging themes for business and public sector management. In the first edition of 2022, the special section deals with the subject that marks the spirit of our times: sustainability. The articles are the outcome of research carried out by FGV’s Center for Sustainability Studies (FGVCes), which works to develop strategies, policies and tools for public and business management for sustainability, at local, national and international levels.
For this special edition, Mario Monzoni, FGVces’ coordinator, and Fernanda Carreira, a researcher at FGVces, put the ESG approach into a historic context and argue that this movement considers the performance of organizations to be subordinated to planetary environmental limits. Other articles address the positive relationship between ESG performance and the presence of women on the boards of companies in Brazil; innovations in global governance in light of difficulties faced by nation states to find solutions to the world’s urgent social and environmental problems; a proposal for a Green New Deal for Brazil to achieve economic growth based on sustainability pillars; and, finally, suggestions for a regulated carbon market to be implemented in Brazil.
Two other articles in the issue deconstruct simplistic views of management issues that permeate the business media. The first shows how fashionable multichannel marketing is hard to implement, while the second warns that making the digital workplace function well requires not just technology but also leadership, culture and communication, says Adriana Wilner.
GV-Executive is open to submissions of articles about applied research, interventions, positionings and bibliographic reviews.
