GOIC Secretary General Abdulaziz bin Hamad Al-Ageel presented certificates to the participants and stressed the importance of such trainings in terms of boosting project successes. He reiterated GOIC’s commitment to supporting GCC industrial sector and the Organisation’s constant endeavours to improve industrial staff’s performance.
The workshop was delivered by Dr. Laila Diab Shrair who introduced participants to basic project management concepts and tools, project life cycle, risk management, reasons behind project failures and key roles and responsibilities of project managers. In addition, participants got acquainted with practical means of assistance and pre-set forms aiming at helping them implement a good project management programme.
Dr. Shrair explained that most projects fail because of a lack of organisational support, notably in terms of human resources (60% of unsuccessful projects) and 37% of projects fail to succeed because of mediocre planning and management.
