DEWA staff train in corporate agility in collaboration with pioneering global organisations
Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) has organised an online training programme for 40 employees in collaboration with pioneering organisations in business agility in the UK. 20 employees in leading positions received Certified Agile Leadership (CAL) certificates, and 20 Agility Champions received Certified Scrum Master (CSM) certificates for agile project management, accredited by the Scrum Alliance. The training programme supports DEWA’s efforts to promote the capabilities of its staff and its strategy to implement enterprise agility across all its sectors.
“Organisations must always develop the capabilities of their staff to keep pace with changes and turn challenges into opportunities within a comprehensive system of integrated organisational work. DEWA’s resilience and agility played a key role in its success and excellence. This is done by identifying opportunities, analysing the internal and external environment, and defining stakeholders’ needs and turning them into strategic initiatives. DEWA’s practices have become a benchmark for many organisations around the world. Raising employees' skills in enterprise agility supports DEWA’s efforts to spread an agility-focused culture and practices. This will help make DEWA the first fully agile utility,” said HE Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, MD & CEO of DEWA.
