DEWA Graduates first Batch of Capacity Building Programme


Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) concluded its first intensive Capacity Building training programme to prepare Emirati experts in leadership and excellence at senior functional positions at DEWA. This aims to develop their skills in relevant corporate excellence and evaluation processes.

The programme supports graduates in developing their divisions based on the criteria and requirements of the government excellence system, and the Dubai Government Excellence Programme (DGEP) of the General Secretariat of the Executive Council of Dubai.

Some 21 trainees from different DEWA divisions participated in the programme supervised by experts in corporate excellence and specialists in DEWA’s key technical and administrative areas. The programme provided hands-on training on simulating evaluation processes and preparing evaluation reports.

Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, MD & CEO of DEWA, highlighted that corporate maturity achieved by DEWA in excellence, and the accumulated experience of its leaders in assessment were all factors that helped the organisation become one of the most prominent and distinguished global utilities in its operations. Experts from its HR department were on hand to train the cohort on analysing internal situations based on accredited DGEP corporate excellence standards and outlining strengths and opportunities for improvement.
