EZW deploys new project management system
Dubai, May 4, 2011
Economic Zones World (EZW), global provider of sustainable industrial and logistics infrastructure solutions, said it has successfully implemented an innovative new project management system in Dubai.
The new system, Organizational Project Management Office (OPMO) follows global best practices and is compliant with standards and criteria laid out by the Project Management Institute, the world’s leading not-for-profit membership association for project management, said a EZW statement.
The advanced, best-in-class project management system is expected to enhance the company’s operations and efficiencies, in keeping with its commitment to enhancing technology, people and process as part of its customer centric approach to doing business.
With this, EZW has become one of the first companies in the region to successfully implement the system. It will enhance methodology, enterprise project management and training which represents the human aspect of the project, the statement added.
The system was first introduced at EZW in June 2009 and is now in its third and most developed phase. It focuses on creating a culture of organised project management within the company and will be employed and integrated in the company’s operations worldwide.
Salma Hareb, CEO of Economic Zones World, said, “A strong focus on business excellence has always been central to our overall strategy and values. We have consistently sought to enhance operational processes adopting best global practices and systems to help us realize our strategic goals and overall vision.'
'Organizational project management of this calibre gives us a competitive edge,' said Hareb, citing the recent Dubai Quality Award win for the company’s flagship operation, Jafza.
'We are the largest free zone operators in the region and this new system reflects our commitment to innovation to get the most out of our performance. All of our initiatives are designed to provide our stakeholders with the best of services at a higher level of efficiency,' she added.
Lotfy Sabry, CEO of Experts Project Management, the company responsible of the third phase, commended EZW for being one of the first companies in the region to adopt an advanced system such as the OPMO.
“Large corporations with global operations have complex project management systems and the newly installed OPMO will not only enhance efficiencies but will give EZW the flexibility and dexterity required to adapt to the ongoing changes in the business world,” he added.-TradeArabia News Service
