         ABOUT SUKAD
              The vision of SUKAD was born from the cumulative global experiences of some of the pioneering Project and Organi-
              zation Management professionals from and across the Middle East.
              The founding members of SUKAD realized, the burgeoning economy of Middle East needed cutting edge Project
              Management Professionals who not only measured up to international standards, but also professionals who could
              develop solutions tailored for the Middle East business environment.
              Since the day of SUKAD’s inception our vision was never to be just another training institute, but one that was unique
              in its approach of application of real time training methodologies, along with highly comprehensive inputs, that
              encapsulated years of experiences by the best practicing professionals in the industry.
              In line with our vision and quest for excellence, we have always put a premium on establishing a culture that primarily
              focuses on accumulation and inflow of knowledge as perhaps its single biggest competitive strength in the market as
              on date. Towards this end we have aggressively but selectively forged strategic partnerships with core Project
              Management entities in training and consultancy across the globe, thus ensuring our edge as knowledge based
              business entity.
              A significant measure of our reputation and credibility as project management professionals, is the fact that we have
              been hired by some of the top business entities of the Middle East not only as project consultants, but also as the
              official “In-house” trainers for their employees.
              It comes as no surprise, that in a relatively short period of its existence, SUKAD trained professionals have gained a
              reputation in business circles in and around the region as “excellent investments”.
              So you may be an established professional looking to augment your knowledge base, a rising professional in quest of
              international certifications, a fresh graduate OR a business entity looking to maximize returns by upgrading the PM
              knowledge level of your employees, SUKAD has courses and training approaches to cater to all your requirements.

         OUR VISION
              To be the premiere management center of excellence in the Middle East, the preferred provider of services to our
              strategic partners, and a most rewarding working environment to our associates.

           SUKAD understands implementing best Practices in Project Management is but the first step, it is important to create
           an inheritable legacy that permeates every level of the organization. This is the reason we take a holistic view of
           project management and customized Industry specific solutions.

           This is the reason most of our consultancy clients also recruit our services as corporate project management trainers
           to imbue a culture of best practices across the length and breadth of the organization.
           Our Institutional / Corporate Training Methodology goes beyond training and seek to establish a comprehensive
           professional development program which broadly involves application of the following tools:
                  Competency assessments,
                  Identification of gaps,
                  Mapping Career Path Process
                  On the job and off the job training
                  Mentoring and coaching programs.

           The approach is unique in the sense it does not end with a few classroom sessions, but addresses the
           fundamental problem of aligning organizational objectives with individual employee aspirations at every
           level. Key deliverables include:
                  Advocating long term career path concept for each employee
                  Career management framework - for each position and member within the organization
                  Proper mix of theory and practice
                  Creating an environment across the organization that stresses on Learning
                  A culture of free flow of Knowledge transfer and sharing
                  Training existing employees to develop Core competence in project management, thus gradually eliminating requirements
                  for external consultants and expensive PM exercises.
