GECE Observatory

The Company's Governance, Strategy and Competitiveness Observatory is the result of collaboration between CaixaBank and Ivie. It was created with the aim of knowing the companies' competitiveness status and evolution in the Valencian Community and Spain, identifying the internal factors and causes contributing to its improvement and, finally, dynamically studying the effect on competitiveness of changes in business characteristics, strategies adopted and the evolution of the governing and leadership bodies.
The analysis of business competitiveness carried out by the GECE Observatory is fed by the information deposited in the Mercantile Registry and also by data provided by the companies themselves through participation in a panel called 4 CIRCLES. Participation in the panel allows companies to have access to personalized reports and diagnoses, with a higher level of detail, which will allow them to undertake strategic change processes based on objective and rigorous information, and obtain recommendations and guidelines from the research team.
Panel participation involves companies providing qualitative information by answering short questionnaires each year on corporate governance, ownership structure, family-company relations (in the case of Family Business), strategic focus and analysis of systematic competitiveness of companies and internal factors that can contribute to their improvement.
Participation in the panel of companies of the GECE Observatory is formalized by completing the following registration form.
