A 2010 study on projects conducted in Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA) shows that work can be as much as 20 per cent less expensive and 30 per cent faster to complete when undertaken by collaborative teams that are aligned with business objectives. The results indicate that group dynamics are integral to the success of projects in the EMEA region. SKOPOS Consulting, a leading provider of customized Organization Development (OD) solutions to companies in the Middle East and Africa, is currently focusing on the development of advanced techniques to enhance group dynamics and enable EMEA companies to boost productivity, efficiency and profitability.
SKOPOS customizes international best practices to come up with best-fit solutions for addressing organizational challenges. It assists enterprises in establishing a culture of high performance, leadership, innovation and efficiency across all corporate activities, organizational flexibility, as well as professional and personal growth. The SKOPOS portfolio of services and tools covers executive coaching, conflict management, team building, leadership development and communication. The company’s experience and expertise are especially suited for developing new approaches to improve group dynamics.
“Human resources are always the most critical component in any organization. But while a company can gather a highly-talented workforce, it is how these people interact that ultimately spells the difference between organizational failure and success. The EMEA study shows just how important group dynamics is to expediting work and raising the bottom line. We are aligning our OD solutions to ensure that they foster positive group dynamics and complement the unique needs of EMEA businesses,” said Dr. Hussein El Kazzaz, Managing Director, SKOPOS Consulting.
Effective group dynamics can prevent issues such as lack of communication, poor organization culture, low morale, high turnover and cost escalation. Positive group interactions promote innovative thinking; creative yet practical solutions; and advanced learning. SKOPOS enhances group chemistry in organizations by implementing programs covering Leadership Development, Change Management, Culture Transformation, Strategy Execution through cross-functional teams, Organizational Design, and Organizational Vision, Mission and Values.
SKOPOS Consulting moved its headquarters from the US to the Middle East in 2002 to deliver world-class Organization Development techniques to the Arab business community. The consultancy assists enterprises in defining, developing and sustaining a corporate culture of growth and business excellence. SKOPOS maintains operations in Dubai, Cairo and Bahrain. It recently launched a new company called RightScope that focuses on specific developmental areas at the organizational, team or individual levels.
