From Knowledge to Success.
Abu Dhabi University Knowledge Group (ADUKG).
To move from Knowledge to Success we started by listening to the marketplace to hear what the issues and opportunities were. We wanted to know where current training was unable to provide solutions to your needs.
What we heard was a dissatisfaction with:
A) Quality - Low quality non-accredited local training providers.
B) Content - Materials developed for other parts of the world and then dropped onto your organizations.
C) Culture - Flying in foreign trainers and educators who did not understand the region and its characteristics.
D) Delivery – Under-qualified trainers or frequent trainer changes.
E) Design - Tired old training programs being delivered.
F) Measurement - Poor and non-performance related measurement of training results.
So in our solutions we at ADUKG have a promise to you:
A) Quality - High quality accredited qualifications and the potential to earn credits for further success.
B) Content - Materials developed following local research with deep local understanding.
C) Culture – Trainers and educators with experience in the region or at least well briefed before arrival.
D) Delivery – The best in trainers delivering dynamic and engaging programs.
E) Design – Innovative, fresh programs stimulating multiple learning styles and intelligences.
F) Measurement – Specified Learning Outcomes and Training KPI’s used to measure impact and results.
We pooled together some of the best minds in training and development and the vast capabilities of the Abu Dhabi University Knowledge Group to create innovative and integrated specific solutions:
Fully customized Corporate and Government solutions, supporting the nation, and helping you reach your Emiritization targets.

They Integrate A) recruitment and profiling, B) career counseling and work readiness C) internationally accredited language and vocational skills training.

The HR department of any organization is one of the most vital departments for its sustainability and growth. Improving the skills and capabilities of the HR department will always lead to increased return on salaries and a more talented workforce.
Our HRM Solutions include partnerships which allow us to provide international qualifications and even include the possibility for a Masters in Human Resource Management from ADU. We also run a variety of assessment and development centers to help gauge the current and future fit of your staff – from executive to front line. We can help with Training Needs Analysis (TNA) consultancy and Competency Framework Development.
If you value your people as an organization then you need to value the people who most value your people - HR. We provide one stop solutions to help you provide that value.
For most organizations, the challenge that ongoing change presents is significant for its leaders and its people and it is fairly mainstream knowledge today that most organization change initiatives fail to deliver senior managements desired or expected results.
From our experience, large scale change work tends to raise some level of organization anxiety and therefore there is often an attraction towards highly analytical and diagnostic approaches with prescriptive alignment orientations and precise timetables.
We are aware that many ‘change management’ providers may well offer such ‘formulaic’ approaches, and whilst those approaches can bring benefits to some change agendas (e.g. down sizing), our experience is that generative and sustainable organization change is a phenomenon which is not suitable for mechanistic approaches, or ‘push’ methodologies associated with a ‘mechanistic’ mentality. This archaic organization metaphor and approaches to change have generated the unhappy legacy of troubling trade-offs that many of us have heard of or even been a part of. We now know well that organizations are enormously resistant to externally imposed change advocacies, training programs or glossy campaigns, which have led many organizations to search for new thinking and fresh approaches to change.
Our offer is to consult with you to bring a one stop solution that has a uniquely human and social orientation to change – to work holistically WITH the human dynamics of interaction, rather than against or over it.
Projects are at the core of modern business activities. Outside of standard operations most business practices and initiatives are now governed by the policies and practices of Projects. How well does your organization manage its projects?
Our Project Management Solutions use a combination of internationally accredited qualifications from the Project Management Institute (PMI) accompanied by NVQ on-the-job assessments of competency and open short courses in Project Management to make sure that all concepts – from Work Breakdown Structures (WBS) to Results Management Guides (RMG) are understood and are operationally adding benefit to your organization.
Let us help raise the bar on your organizational knowledge by providing a one stop solution for continually improving your capabilities in Project Management.
