“Since I finished the program and sent all my assignments I started thinking how to apply what I learned into my organization in duties and tasks. I found that this program impacted both levels, my organization and my personal life. As we are in war zone and not stable, I started reviewing all existing policies and updating documenting all missing procedures and policies for all hierarchy levels. I acquired a new vision for the future of BASMA, through an updated framework that recognizes the dimensions of the environmental influences, the position and role of BASMA, the requirements for excellence, the collaboration between the board members and of course the driving forces and obstacles at all level, and most importantly identification of the needs for change. What I learned for myself that life is running and we can’t just be observers in this world, we have to be active and interfere with the circumstances through continuous learning. I am now aware that being active in the surrounding environment is very different than being just a passive observer and recipient of its consequences, surrendering to its effects.”
