The award recognizes the singular contributions of highly potential leaders, managers, teams, and innovative organizations in the GCC region in garnering support in promoting the mission and programs of Alleem Business Congress.

Dr. Rashid Alleem talks to SEMINARY on the Project Management Congress

A great manager is one who understands and practices the real meaning of modern management which is the process of attaining organizational goals by effectively and efficiently planning, organizing, leading and controlling the organization's human, physical, financial and informational resources.

An Opportune Moment for the Congress

The state of affairs of the economy in most of the countries is quite fragile and tempestuous at the moment. It has been so for the last couple of years and no one seems to have the faintest clue as to when things will start looking up steadily and not just few random events or spikes in the graph. Costs are increasing and industrial growth is stagnating. United States has its own set of issues, job cuts, slowdown etc.

The 21st Century Prerequisite-PROJECT MANAGEMENT

Project Management is the subject that deals with initiating, planning, scheduling, organizing, allocating, controlling, optimizing and managing resources (raw materials, manpower, money) to achieve explicit goals and objectives (also known as project deliverables) within a stipulated period of time.

Sustainable Growth: Concerted Efforts Required

Removal of poverty has been one of the major objectives of developmental strategy everywhere. The Millennium Development Goals of the United Nations calls for reducing the proportion of people living on less than $1 a day (in 1990) to half by the year 2015. Can we achieve the target is a question bothering the minds of social scientists around the globe. The existing figures are dismal. As many as 925 million people do not have enough to eat — more than the combined populations of USA, Canada and the European Union. More alarming is the fact that 98% of the world's undernourished people live in developing countries and two-thirds of the world's hungry live in just 7 countries: Bangladesh, China, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Ethiopia, India, Indonesia and Pakistan.

From The Founder Chairman: Promoting Cutting Edge Thinking to Share & Care

Over the years, the Center has grown into a versatile platform for inducing cooperation amongst various stakeholders of society.

Breathing LIFE into the Resolve for SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT

Everyone today talks of growth and development of the nation, enterprises and the self. There is a constant eagerness to do better, grow bigger and being insatiable about wants. Fundamentally, these are desirable traits as it propels our efforts for more economic activity, commerce, movement of funds, material, labor and opportunity to use one's skills and make a living. The catch is growth and development at what cost? And whether astounding per capita income of a handful of the population means economic excellence? Is the government having a tunnel vision towards a certain segment of the community or the schemes, policies and laws take into account the bigger picture and the far reaching implication of developmental decisions?

Venturing into the Mind of Dr. Rashid Alleem

How does a business person of Dr. Rashid Alleem's stature think about issues like Sustainable Development and act upon it? It did not happen one fine day rather his deep insight and enthusiasm crops from his vision to share his knowledge and experience for millions of others to ascertain and emulate for personal and social betterment.

Routes of Alternative Finances

Peter Drucker said “Because of its purpose is to create a customer, the business has two and only two functions: marketing and innovation. Marketing and innovation produce results. All the rest are costs”. Indeed once we are looking on the alternative finances for small and medium scale businesses, we found innovation and its skilled marketing as only way out for reaching a desirable end. Barring the finances from banks/ Venture Capitalists/ Private Equity, there are only few institutional routes of business financing…afterall, even we can’t rely on highly suspicious routes of Sovereign Wealth Funds {SWF}and Participatory Notes {PN}, which bears no accountability and simply creates a myopic illusion of something better!

Innovative Financing: Global Practice

Meeting the development and social infrastructure challenges facing humanity requires new, predictable and sustainable funding. Innovative financing initiatives generate diverse resources and unleash the full potential of the emerging markets, the financial community and private business. Innovative financing provides the opportunity to leverage the formidable pool of global capital and new asset classes for development.

Tips to think innovative: Consolidate Your Financial Profile

Fund raising for small businesses is really a challenge. Your outlook, mindset, enthusiasm, drive for dynamic working all contribute to your efforts for consolidating your financial profile.
