Top 10 Reasons Why Projects Fail in the Middle East

Top 10 Reasons Why Projects Fail in the Middle East | Dubai Training News | Scoop.it

In the summer of 1998,  I was visiting some of my friends and family in Boston. Although, the city has a lot to offer (and continues to) in terms of history, culture, food and beauty, the traffic in the downtown area was horrific. People were blaming the “Big Dig”.

The Big Dig was the most expensive highway project in the U.S. and was plagued by escalating costs, scheduling overruns, leaks and design flaws, charges of poor execution and use of substandard materials, and one death. The project was scheduled to be completed in 1998 at an estimated cost of $2.8 billion. Instead, it was completed in December 2007, at a cost of over $14.6 billion.(1)

Happy Employees Equal Engaged Employees?

Happy Employees Equal Engaged Employees? | Dubai Training News | Scoop.it
Does Employee Satisfaction Equal Employee Engagement? A happy employee is an engaged employee, Yes/No? According to all available research, including numerous global studies and surveys, the answer is a resounding and absolute No. A Happy Employee - But Not Engaged Look at it this way. An employee who is not engaged at work might very well indicate a high level of satisfaction with their organization. This employee is getting everything they wish: a steady paycheck, benefits, sick leave and paid vacation. However, their actual contribution to the well being of the organization in terms of, the typical discretionary indicators such as, innovation, creativity, productivity and, improved customer service is negligible. But they are satisfied. It's an easy ride maybe? An Engaged Employee - But Not Happy On the other hand,  a fully engaged employee that is enthusiastic about their work is creative, innovative and who wants to contribute, might indicate a lower level of satisfaction with the same organization the opposite of the disengaged employee.  Unhappy for various reasons, he/she goes on doing the "right things". These are the employees you risk losing. Some surveys suggest that over  over 50% of employees are ready to start looking for new jobs once the crisis eases. Typical Survey ResultsSatisfaction In surveys Meirc has conducted on behalf of GCC/MENA clients, in the period 2008-2010, just over 50% of employees indicated that they were/are satisfied/very satisfied (not a great number). Engagement

Recent international surveys, including a recent Gallup international survey of over 100,000 employees, indicate that as many as 54% of employees are not engaged: they are at work physically but not mentally or emotionally and that another 17% are actively disengaged and unhappy, and worse still, spreading discontent, poor productivity and customer service levels as low as 17% satisfied customers. Do You Know? Some questions for you are "do you know whether your employees are happy?" Do you know how to assess whether or not they are engaged? Which is most important to you as a manager? Should you care? Do you want to know more? have a great weekend wherever you are.

“My Relationship With My Manager Is Not Good!” Can Anything Be Done?

“My Relationship With My Manager Is Not Good!” Can Anything Be Done? | Dubai Training News | Scoop.it
Meirc offers an impressive range of Dubai training, consulting, Dubai Certification, Seminars Dubai, Management Course Dubai, Dubai Business Training and research services
Meirc's insight:

Does this statement sound familiar? On numerous occasions during my training programs I’ve heard such utterance from participants. Also repetitively heard are statements such as: “I don’t know what my manager wants from me”, “seems that whatever I do, he/she is not satisfied” or “I think my manager doesn’t like me”. Mind you, these participants come from a wide spectrum: juniors to directors, males/females, easterners/westerners, I mean the whole nine-yards. However, there seems to be a pattern: many employees’ relationship with their managers is not in good shape. Are you currently or potentially one of these people? Do you know someone close to you who is? If yes, then read on.

Roy Sheneman, PhD's curator insight, November 24, 2014 9:23 AM

It is hard to wear so many hats simultaneously. The wise leader will develop them one at a time and add them to his or her toolbox.  In this way more will be accomplished in a shorter period of time than if we tried to do it all at the same time.  It is better to be excellent at several things acquired over time than to be mediocre at several things tried simultaneously...

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, November 24, 2014 11:38 AM

Peter Vaill's work focused on the first point. He argued 25 years ago that managing and leading were integrated. This is not new, but it has taken a long time for others to pick up on it.

Seven Leadership Roles

Seven Leadership Roles | Dubai Training News | Scoop.it

 

Strategies for Becoming a More Effective Leader
By Farid A. Muna Board Member Meirc Training & Consulting January 2014
 

All the world’s a stage, And all the men and women are merely players: They have their exits and entrances; And one man in his life plays many parts. William Shakespeare, As You Like It, Act 2

 

How many roles does a leader play? Undoubtedly, there are many more than seven; but the following are seven roles that I believe are critical to leadership success:

The leader as

Gardener: Cultivating HRCanada Goose: Three Leadership LessonsNegotiator: Beyond Win-WinStudent of Cultures: A Worldly MindsetCaptain: Strategic ThinkingAbacus: Beyond the Financial Bottom LineAcrobat: Balancing Work and Personal Life

I have always felt that whenever these seven roles were discussed, the strategic element was significantly under-emphasized or completely overlooked. This is precisely what I attempt to do here: incorporate a strategic approach to each role.

Three of the above roles were covered at length in articles published in academic journals (see References, below). The other roles were briefly described in various short articles (some of them appear on this Meirc website). The current article is a brief summary of all seven leadership roles. Of course, the vast literature on leadership can easily yield many more roles that leaders play—perhaps more than twenty depending on the school of thought and specialization of the writer. Yet I have chosen just seven roles which are particularly critical for increasing the effectiveness of leaders working across various types of organizations.

Why seven? Well, there are two good reasons. First, the seven roles are those that are most familiar to me. Clearly, to discuss all of the other equally critical leadership roles would result in a book more voluminous than my objective of producing a short summary for busy leaders.

Dealing with an Unreasonable Contractor (Sole Source)

Dealing with an Unreasonable Contractor (Sole Source) | Dubai Training News | Scoop.it

Your Scope of Work - SoW- ( or part of it) includes a service / product that is available from just the ‘one source'. Efforts to negotiate better terms (including more reasonable price) with the provider fail

Meirc's insight:

Here are some suggestions as to how to deal with the situation:
A)     Short to medium term   choices:

 ‘Reluctantly and temporarily‘ go with the deal, possibly until you figure out a longer-term solution. Negotiate a Long Term Price Agreement ( you may get better terms if you commit for a longer period) Scrap / replace the service / product in the SoW.. whenever possible ! Go for a ‘substitute' ( similar not identical). Use an alternative service / product that may (somewhat) achieve the purpose. Amend some features of the service / product in order to remove the ‘proprietary' aspects. Approach other suppliers for suggestions. Approach other suppliers outside the ‘Monopoly' area (including possibly the original supplier of the service/product) Combination of two or more of the above.



•B)      Longer-term choices:

 Explore possibilities for a Barter (scratch my back, I'll scratch yours) . The supplier may need some of your products /services and therefore may show some flexibility. Explore possibilities of ‘ Who knows whom' in your / supplier organizations. Personal relationship (especially at the Top) may work miracles!!Redesign your Sow to :a. Exclude the subject service / productb. Use an alternative service/productc. Include an ‘in-house' product/service (available within your organization)


FINAL NOTES: 

1) If you invest enough time and attention in preparing your SoW , you should be able to avoid including any ‘proprietary' service / product that may lead to a ‘Sole Source' situation.2) When awarding a contract special care should be given to avoid putting ourselves in a ‘Monopoly' situation ( such as availability of ‘maintenance' services and spare parts exclusively from the OEM)
