I am well driven by three of my most substantial accomplishments. I believe that addressing my achievements will make me more motivated to pursue my career. Being a Workflow Manager is my first accomplishment. I was able to realize that I am blessed when it comes to leading and managing people. My department is well guided by my supervision as it provides solutions for Geographic information Systems which specializes in the Utilities sector. I am also in charge in checking our applications which depends on workflow processes among the users.
There is a certain workflow to be followed when supervising this department. It should not be time consuming, not flexible to maintain or update and not applicable in other workflows. One of my suggestion is to build an in hose tool called “workflow manager” wherein it aims to create designs and a dynamic application that can simulate any simple or complex workflow in an organization. My first accomplishment is being used until now by five different applications, in utilities in Bahrain, Oman, UAE and Lebanon.
From a simple suggestion, it turned out to be one of my substantial accomplishments because it leads to my promotion of being a Senior GIS analyst to Deputy Project Manager. My second accomplishment is by successfully leading a Water Utility Track. I was lucky enough to be appointed by my company to govern the GIS enterprise project for the Ministry of Water and Electricity (MEW) in the kingdom of Bahrain. Part of my responsibilities is to facilitate the daily meetings at MEW and gather people’s concerns and suggestions which will lead to further enhancement of the system.
I ensure that water engineers are doing their job properly and impose changes when necessary. I maintain the quality of my subordinates work by checking them every now and then and fix uprising problems. This includes data specialist as well as the 8 draftsmen who are assisting the users in MEW. I also answer questions relating to their work and streamlining their tasks. My rigorous also includes meetings with decision makers and establishing road map towards development. I use to report for them and discuss enhancements and strategies for the future.
I was then promoted as a project manager for the software/hardware maintenance contract for the same MEW for the next 5 years because of my exemplary performance. Last among the most substantial achievements has something to do with my family life. I am lucky enough to be born in a family full of love and harmony. My father died from a tragic incident in 2002 leaving me as the only male along with my mother and four younger sisters. His death really tested our strength since he left us with no insurance.
I work hard since then and even accepted tutorial jobs to high school students. I am responsible in giving advices and guidance for my sisters. I also aid them in choosing the right university and guide them when it comes to career choice may it be local of abroad. Today,2 of my sisters are successfully working in UAE while the 2 others are still studying under my supervision. I am most proud of these accomplishments because I lead other people by example. I aim for more accomplishments in the future after obtaining my MBA degree.
