Region’s firms should consider a health check to boost business performance, according to experts
Gulf businesses have room to be more effective, according to Dubai-based management consultants, Aryan Business Consulting.
Aryan’s CEO, Ron Ribeiro says that many established firms would benefit from an organisational health and effectiveness check as Gulf markets embark on a business path that may require a different method of implementation than was the ‘norm’.
“The markets are buoyant, varied and swift. Businesses looking to ride the wave and grow would generally benefit from an audit to ‘spring-clean’ all levels, layers and activities within the organization.
“A fit organisiation can better serve its customers, and so better achieve its business goals,” said Ribeiro.
He stressed that start-ups too would reap benefits if they paid more emphasis on the organisational structure, and its development, from the outset.
Ribeiro was speaking on the sidelines of a recent seminar on ‘Organisational Assessment & Development’ with Insight partners, industry experts’ Mark Kryzer, Robert Etten and Anastasia Dezenowagis.
Aryan, with Insight, has launched a systems approach to improving business performance in the region.
Kryzer encouraged that businesses of all shapes and sizes sit back and ask simple but pertinent questions.
“The wise leaders will be asking questions of oganisational effectiveness, looking at business processes and how well they work, and most certainly they will be considering what makes for right staffing and skill sets to work today’s – and tomorrow’s – economy.
“It is what customers are saying about the organisation that is but one measure of how well strategies are working, or not,” he warned.
Ribeiro continued: “The chief value of an organisational effectiveness audit is to offer new and challenging perspectives to the organisation, people, work processes, technologies and strategies.”
“Our alliance with Insight underlines Aryan’s strategy to enhance our services through partnering with experienced, international specialists in the field of management consultancy,” said Ribeiro.
“The Middle East is an extremely important market for us and our partnership with Aryan will enable us to better service the needs of the region’s rapidly growing business community, “said Kryzer.
US-headquartered, Insight, have successfully executed multi-million dollar management projects across a range of private and public sector companies within the United States and beyond.
Meanwhile, with more than three decades experience in the Middle East region, Aryan Business Consulting has structured merger, acquisition and financing deals for some of the UAE’s leading organisations in the media, finance and construction sectors.
