Public Training Programs Public training programs are open to participants from any organization. These participants have the opportunity to concentrate on their learning away from the job and without the pressures of day-to-day work. Participants also benefit from sharing experiences with people from other organizations and gain a new perspective on common problems.

Individualized Training Programs Individualized Training Programs (ITPs) are concentrated, practical, one-to-one coaching sessions, with individuals receiving the full-time attention of specialized and experienced consultants. Meirc has conducted many such in-depth training programs, which were specifically designed for individual participants. The subjects covered were based on the specific needs of each participant. The programs usually comprise briefings by Meirc Senior Consultants, reviews of manuals, reports and other data, as well as supervised exercises and structured discussions. ITPs may last from one day to three months, depending on individual and organizational needs, and may be conducted in English and/or Arabic.

  12. 12. 12 Training & Consulting Consulting Services Meirc works with clients to help identify issues and solve problems using a systematic and creative approach. Meirc’s involvement varies with the nature of the situation and the request of the client. In particular, the assignment may range from ad hoc advice on a particular problem or issue, to the design of comprehensive systems for the client as well as the evaluation and revision of existing systems. After meeting with the client and agreeing on the scope of the project, a team of specialized consultants starts working with the client’s staff. Together they collect facts and data, which they then analyze using the latest techniques to identify practical solutions. After agreeing on the solutions, they train the client’s staff, assist in the implementation and help the client achieve long lasting benefits. The range of consulting services is wide and includes: Human Resources Management • Job Analysis, Descriptions and Evaluations • Personnel Policies and Procedures • Organization and Workforce Planning • Compensation and Benefits • Compensation/Salary Surveys • Competency Frameworks, Models and Dictionaries • Psychometric Testing (Ability and Personality) Performance Management • Performance Management Systems • Competency-Based Performance Systems • Performance-Based Reward Systems Training and Workforce Development • Training Needs Analysis • Evaluating Training Effectiveness • Competency Gap Analysis • Audit of the Training and Development Function • Career Development and Succession Planning

  14. 14. 14 Training & Consulting Research and Publication Services The research carried out by Meirc focuses on studies related to management in the Arab World. Much of our research is conducted with practicing managers and executives whose involvement helps in shaping and supporting particular studies. The most recent research study was on the perennial topic of leadership and resulted in a book titled Developing Multicultural Leaders (2010) authored by Dr. Farid A. Muna and Dr. Ziad A. Zennie. The book was published by the reputable Palgrave Macmillan in the UK. A team of eight Meirc consultants assisted the authors in data collection for this field-based research. Our research synthesizes international management literature by significant thinkers, scholars and practitioners world-wide. The authors tackle five related questions: • What influence do early childhood years have on leadership development and success? • What are the specific life experiences that contribute to leadership success? • How do leaders with potential become outstanding? • What critical paths must leaders follow on their journey to success? • What must great leaders do exceptionally well to become and remain outstanding? This research is unique because it represents the first fully fledged empirical study of its kind based on interviewing 310 successful leaders from 129 organizations in 12 countries in the Middle East. The practical implications of the study are substantial: CEOs, senior executives, and Human Resources professionals will find important recommendations on how best to recruit, select, assess, develop, and motivate future managers and leaders.
