From the Chairman

The scale and size of the infrastructure projects in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the Gulf region as a whole, underscores the need for professionals in both public and private sector agencies to have the necessary project management skills to manage such large and significant projects. It is for this reason, that I have asked IRF to develop this training course as part of its yearly training offerings in the Kingdom. This training course will provide project managers from both the public and private sector with the tools to execute projects on-time and on-budget, while at the same time meeting the Kingdom’s high quality standards. Delegates will learn and the understand the importance of good project management practices from the conception and planning to stages to the handover of projects.

It is my pleasure to invite you to attend this excellent training program that is both timely and relevant for the region.

Eng. Abdullah A. Al-Mogbel
IRF Chairman
