A newly reinforced commitment could be of importance to those with a property in Dubai.
The Business Excellence Centre at the Department of Economic Development (DED) recently carried out a number of training sessions for the assessors of the Dubai Quality Award (DQA).
Such training was also for the benefit of the Dubai Human Development Award (DHDA) 2009 cycle.
Mohammed Juma Bushanain, executive director at the DED, said: "While winning the award is indeed a special honour for participating companies, the feedback from the assessors holds great value for companies."
He explained that it may be utilised as an area to start to pinpoint necessary improvements. This means that assessor training forms a vital point of the process to achieve the award.
Attended my over 150 assessors the sessions took place in the form of 13-day workshops.
The Dubai Quality Award is said to be about recognising role model organisations, not just generating winners or losers. The award itself is based upon the Excellence Model of the European Foundation for Quality Management.
