Even though the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates have presented in the GCC countries and their cultures are almost the same. Their difference can't be told unless they're experienced. One would prefer The United Arab Emirates due to its superiority in education, traffic system and women rights to Saudi Arabia. Education is one of the vital needs of a society. Its value can be reflected on school students starting from elementary to high school. The educational system in KSA is known to have low standards. Not only curriculums there are noticeably weak and basic comparing to the international standards, but also they're being taught in Arabic and missing the international language, English. However, all universities around the worlds even in KSA are providing an English system which will create a large obstacle to students who graduated from Saudi's schools. According to the Ministry of Education in Saudi Arabia (2010), the studies show that about 85% of students who graduated from Saudi Arabia are spending at least one year of their life after graduating from their high school just to learn English. In contrast to KSA, UAE is considered to have better level of education. The system provided there is well-organized for all generations. Curriculums are being taught to prepare students for their universities starting from elementary school by offering them some subjects in English, such as Math, Chemistry and Physics. Moreover, the students have several options of majors after graduating from the high school. They also have many different universities that are internationally certified which make students are more likely to stay in UAE rather than travelling abroad. For instance, if a graduate student is planning to get an American certificate, he /she has the opportunity to achieve his/her goal without leaving UAE by studying in the…...

...------------------------------------------------- Water in the UAE ------------------------------------------------- Impact Achievements and Ways Forward Introduction Water is the resource that sustains all life on earth and is a key element of sustainable development. It is essential if human beings are to enjoy healthy and safe lives or realize social and economic development. Ecosystems are also inextricably linked with water. Water sustains humans’ health, food production, and economic development. But only 3 percent of Earth’s water is salt-free, or fresh water. Moreover, nearly 70 percent of fresh water is locked in glaciers and icebergs, and is not available for human use. The fresh water that is available comes from rain or from rivers, lakes, springs, and some groundwater reserves, such as aquifers. With the increasing demand on water for all aspects of sustainable development, water is becoming very scares all around the world! * Around 700 million people in 43 countries suffer today from water scarcity. * By 2025, 1.8 billion people will be living in countries or regions with absolute water scarcity, and two-thirds of the world's population could be living under water stressed conditions. * With the existing climate change scenario, almost half the world's population will be living in areas of high water stress by 2030, including between 75 million and 250 million people in Africa.

Final Remarks Investing in People Better by a Margin Starting the Process pg 48 pg 64 pg 72 3 Aleron Partners FZ-LLC 2012 © 4 Aleron Partners FZ-LLC 2012 © Foreword by Matthew Lewis Much has been written about the Macro and Socioeconomic impact on the UAE and its economy since the global financial crisis – the oil price, the Arab Spring and on-going Middle East instability are all valid factors in this regard. What we have not seen until now is the resultant effect and impact on the often overlooked but most important assets of any business – its people and their productivity. Our research seeks to fill that omission. The period from 2008 to 2012 has seen a cataclysmic shift in the fundamental areas of demand, quality and flexibility of the talent pool in the UAE. High costs of expatriation and the regional pressure of localisation have put more focus on the productivity of people working within shrinking organisations. Many UAE employees, not having previously worked in a constant change environment and under unfamiliar circumstances, are struggling to perform with fewer resources, less direction, less personal development and / or rewards.

...HISTORICAL BACKGROUND Early Years: The United Arab Emirates (UAE) was formed from the group of tribally organized Arabian Peninsula sheikhdoms along the southern coast of the Persian Gulf and the northwestern coast of the Gulf of Oman. This area was converted to Islam in the seventh century and for Library of Congress – Federal Research Division Country Profile: United Arab Emirates, July 2007 centuries afterward was embroiled in dynastic disputes. Most UAE nationals are descended from two tribal groupings, the Qawasim and the Bani Yas, which emerged as leading powers in the eighteenth century. The Qawasim, mainly land and sea traders, dominated what are today the emirates of Ras al Khaymah and Sharjah. The Bani Yas, who were agricultural and pastoral, lived in what are today the emirates of Abu Dhabi and Dubai. From the seventeenth to the nineteenth century, the area became known as the Pirate Coast, as both European and Arab pirates attacked foreign ships. The British mounted expeditions against the pirates during this period, culminating in an 1818 campaign against the pirate headquarters of Ras al Khaymah and other harbors along the coast. This action ostensibly was taken to safeguard British maritime routes, particularly those of the British East India Company, but some historians have noted that the war was in fact motivated by the British desire to establish supremacy in the region against the claims of other European powers.

...Find a recent article (no more than a year old) that identifies KSAs that will be critical for managers in the immediate future. Provide a summary of the article (and each KSA in the article) and discuss its management development implications in your discussion forum. Knowledge, Skills, and Abilities (KSAs) are determined through qualifying education, experience or background. When responding to job vacancies, the application should display KSAs that are specifically addressed in the advertisement. If the individual(s) skills match the KSAs in the advertisement closely than they are a better prospect for the job. KSAs are important because they help determine the most qualified candidates from the unqualified candidates for vacant positions. Prospect (applicant) KSAs are compared to the skills and requirements for the positions listed. The article I chose was a government item titled KSAs to be Phased Out. This article is about the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) wanting to phase out the KSA questionnaire that is given to applicants that apply for government jobs. The reason the OPM would like to discontinue it is because they feel many individuals who could possibly be good candidates for the jobs will not apply because of the lengthy KSA questionnaire. There can be many advantages and disadvantages to phasing out the KSA questionnaire, however OPM feel individuals should be able to apply with a resume like they would for private companies. This decision will bring......

...U.A.E: The Success Story The emergence of the UAE as an economic powerhouse is an example of a country going through a tremendous transformation. From a tiny country with a nomadic society to building the most modern city in the world. The city being Dubai of course. Dubai is the crown jewel of the UAE and the arab world as a whole. Now one of the most sought-after tourist destinations and business hubs for citizens of the world, Dubai’s success story has made many other Middle Eastern nations take notice. In a survey done by the Arab Youth organization, young arabs chose the UAE as “the country they would most like to move to… and the country they would most like their country to emulate” (Badam). The UAE was ahead of 20 other countries, including the United States, Germany and Britain, as young people’s top country to live in. What led to the UAE’s astronomical rise? What policies led to the resources from oil revenues being spent in the most efficient fashion in comparison to other nations? These are the questions I will tackle in this paper. The UAE was established in 1971 when the rulers of the seven independent emirates agreed to instill a unifying constitution. The ruler of Abu Dhabi at the time , Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, was chosen to lead the country. Since then, the ruler of Abu Dhabi is President of the United Arab Emirates, the head of state, and the ruler of Dubai is the Prime Minister of the United Arab Emirates, the head of government.

Egovernment Strategies the Case of Uae

...eGovernment Strategies The Case of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) This article provides an overview of eGovernment and its role in revolutionising existing governmental systems. It argues that in order for eGovernment initiatives to truly succeed, we need to develop public trust and confidence to promote diffusion and participation. The article relates this to the recently announced UAE eGovernment Strategic Framework 2011-2013. The framework attempts to promote the electronic transformation of all government services within a period of three years. An important component of the strategic framework in question is the use of the existing national identity management infrastructure and the development of a government-owned federated identity management system to support Governmentto-Citizen (G2C) eGovernment transactions and promote trust and confidence on the Internet. Dr. Ali M. Al-Khouri United Arab Emirates Keywords eGovernment, identity management, federated identity, identity card. Government-owned identity management systems that provide secure, unique and tamper-proof digital identities should become a primary component of national eGovernment strategies. Such federated identity systems can gain higher levels of trust, confidence and encourage public participation and has the potential to enable new levels of collaboration between different government agencies.

...Emirates Uae Economics Essay In less than four decades, the United Arab Emirates, a relatively young country, changed from a huge desert to a country that is known today as one of the best in the world to live in. The UAE is a federation of seven monarchies: Abu-Dhabi, Dubai, Sharjah, Ajman, Fujairah, Ras AL- Khaimah and Umm al-Qaiwain. The country is located in the Middle East and is part of the Gulf Cooperation Council which is an economic alliance of six countries bordering the Arab Gulf. Its law is based on Sharia but the UAE is one of the most liberalized countries in the GCC: others beliefs and religions are tolerated. The economy is heavily depending on oil wealth despite the government's efforts to diversify the sources of income. The population is mostly comprised of expatriates (88.52% of the total population in 2010 as per the National Bureau of Statistics estimates). Abu Dhabi, which is known as the driving force in economic, political and decision making process, account for about 90 percent of the oil production, and oil contribute 56% of the entire GDP of the emirates. Dubai is actually the main responsible for the remarkable growth witnessed in the majority of the UAE non-oil sector, Dubai serves as the financial hub in the whole middle east, with commerce, transportation, services and tourism as the driven force of the economy. Its GDP has experienced an exponential growth of around 245% from 2000 to 2011. In the UNDP's Human Development Report 2011, the......

Uae Report

...History The United Arab Emirates (UAE) is a federation of seven states that has grown from a quiet backwater to one of the Middle East's most important economic centres. The UAE’s rich history is rooted in trade and tied to Islam, which came to the region in AD 630. Its location between Europe and the Far East attracted merchants from India and China and was prized by Europeans, in particular the Portuguese, the Dutch and the British. While Europeans sought control of the coasts, inland, the ancestors of the Bedouin made the sandy deserts of Abu Dhabi and Dubai their home. The town of Abu Dhabi became an important center. In the 19th century, the British signed a series of agreements with the individual emirates that resulted in the area becoming known as “The Trucial States.” They agreed not to dispose of any territory except to the United Kingdom and not to enter into relationships with any foreign government other than the United Kingdom without its consent. In return, the British promised to protect the coast from all aggression by sea and to help in case of land attack. The pearling industry thrived in 19th and early 20th centuries, providing income and employment to the people of the Gulf. Many inhabitants were semi-nomadic, pearling in the summer and tending date gardens in the winter. But the economic depression in the late 1920s and early 1930s, coupled with the Japanese invention of the cultured pearl, irreparably damaged the industry. New Beginnings In the......

Ksa Review

...Literature Review While completing the task statements and the KSA statements I realized that this type of job analysis could be very effective when creating a new position. There are many different strategies that have been used to determine what type of analysis should be used for what each individual company may need. I came across an article that did a study and review on what KSA’s would be required to do a job analysis that was based on groups, in order to determine what KSA’s are needed for teamwork. The study concentrated on three areas based on groups. The first one was KSA’s instead of personality traits. Second, team KSA’s as opposed to technical KSA’s and last team versus individual analysis. The article stated that focusing on KSA’ s characterize traits such as trust, helpfulness and supportiveness which are all excellent traits to have when working with a team. The study focused more on team instead of technical KSA’s because team was directed more towards social and interpersonal skills that are needed for teamwork. The team versus individual part of the study focused on each individual within the team specifically because each team member is an individual hired separately from the other team members and when they are evaluated that is also on an individual basis. So to focus on the team itself would not be fair to each individual. I read another article that talked about strategic job analysis and hoe the KSA’s are used to measure the effective......
