A shifting economy and a growing number of millennials entering the work force have caused Saudi companies to adjust their strategic plans for long-term success.
With these changing environmental factors in mind, Ashridge Executive Education has built a three-day educational program to discuss the challenges faced by Saudi businesses and implement actions on how to find success despite difficulties.
“Saudi companies face many challenges including global economic slowdown, drop in oil prices and a younger generation with new outlook entering the workforce,” Rory Hendrikz, director of Ashridge Middle East, said. “In the midst of all these changes, they need to devise new strategies to stay ahead of the game. A well-thought-out strategy is only effective if implemented properly, and our three-day program 'Translating Strategy into Action' takes into consideration the various challenges of goal setting and staff engagement required to successfully execute the strategy.”
The program is specifically designed to provide managers, directors and leaders with the skills needed to build and implement an action plan that will result in positive outcomes for the business. Tools offered during the training include creating a strategic implementation process, ideas on how to get all employees engaged in productive changes, overcoming challenges, acknowledging risks and recognizing weaknesses in the strategic plan.
The instructional course will be held May 17-19 in Abu Dhabi, with a repeat course planned for Dec. 6-8. Any companies interested in having the course tailored to their own needs can request an in-house version of the training in Saudi Arabia.
Ashridge Executive Education is a nonprofit organization with more than two decades of experience training managers and executives in the Middle East.
