Expert managers needed for $690bn UAE projects
Dubai, September 29, 2013
More certified project managers are needed to ensure that planned infrastructure developments across the UAE worth an estimated $690 billion are delivered on time and to the highest quality, said an expert.
“The scope of projects being undertaken in the UAE and their timely delivery require exceptional levels of project management skills," remarked Ibrahim Lari, the CEO of Injazat Data Systems on the eve of the 'Emirates Project Management Academy (EPMA)' conference in Abu Dhabi.
EPMA was established in 2012 with a vision making the UAE as the leading regional Project Management knowledge and operational hub.
It aims to provide valuable training, networking and continuous development opportunities to accelerate the growth of the project management profession in the UAE.
"Initiatives such as the EPMA conference are important platforms for assessing the project management trends and needs across the country, determining the necessary types and levels of proficiencies, and setting directions for empowering local project managers to meet demand," he stated.
The inaugural edition of the conference, which opens tomorrow (September 30) at the Etihad Jumeirah Hotel, will gather around 600 participants to hear keynote speeches from some of the best project management practitioners and thought leaders, said Injazat, a major sponsor of the conference.
They will also get to interact with discussion panels on the latest project management tools, techniques, trends and best practices, it added.
Injazat, said Lari, is an outspoken advocate for the advancement of the UAE’s project management growth and enhancement. "We lend full support to efforts such as the EPMA conference that reinforces and nurtures the emirates' growing project management landscape," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
