Globally, Corporate Strategy and Business Excellency are at the heart of all
business operations and increasingly the UAE market is becoming more and more
aware of the importance of effective business planning and best practice tools.
As a result Charterhouse have seen a higher demand from clients for these kinds
of professionals and as one of the newer business areas to be introduced,
organisations are finding that strong talent is hard to attract.
With the introduction of the Dubai Quality Award & Sheikh Khalifa Excellence
Award in Abu Dhabi UAE organisations are able to measure business performance
and produce road maps to achieve Excellency. Local organisations are
increasingly looking to attract experienced Strategic thinkers, EFQM assessors
and Business Excellency specialists into the business in order to change
cultures and adopt best practice. Talent pools tend to be greatest in Gulf
countries where these strategies are already in operation, some of which have
entered the local market but the trend suggest that many more from overseas may
look to enter the UAE market or look to home grown talent.

Business process re-engineering
Lead assessors (ISO certification)
Within the UAE and across the Gulf states many of the International Management
Consultancy firms are already in operation, but again good talent is difficult
to attract and retain. Traditionally candidates have looked to develop their
strategy and corporate planning skills with these types of organisations, but
the trend suggests that increasingly local and international firms are placing
high importance on this area. More and more UAE based organisations are now
recruiting Strategy Management Consultants to perform in-house roles and
typically look at activities ranging from short to long term business planning,
competitive strategies, identification of new markets/products, business
development etc. During times of slow growth and tough market conditions,
organisations are looking towards these professionals to offer turnaround
strategies and candidate pools are generated predominantly from the UAE, Jordan,
Egypt, UK and USA.
