Liberal trade policies, a strong orientation towards Europe and well-trained professionals all make the Arab region an attractive destination for companies operating on an international scale. The size and resources are equally compelling in favour of the MENA region.
Are you producing in the Arab region or maintaining important supply chains there? Is your company active in the MENA region countries and serves other foreign markets? Then there is no way around international standards in business organisation and process optimisation in your company.
Of course, you will need to consider country-specific peculiarities, but in order to increase your competitiveness, you should also pay attention to consistent communication, terminology and a methodical approach in your company - worldwide. This is the only way to coordinate and align global value creation processes to achieve your corporate goals in the long term and to master the competition.
International standards by means of REFA methods and Lean Management
The Arab region holds exciting potential for industrialisation which however has not yet been tapped into to the necessary extent in all MENA region countries. With regard to digitisation and the interconnection of manufacturing processes - the keyword is Industry 4.0 - the United Arab Emirates lead the way. However, before local companies can upgrade technically, they have to make structures, procedures and processes in the company transparent, design them according to requirements and optimise them regarding effectiveness and efficiency. This is the only way technological trends can unfold their potential.
With the approved REFA methods for process analysis and optimisation in combination with the Lean principle, you can create the basis for their implementation. Through the implementation of the tried and tested REFA standards, you as a company will be able to create valuable synergies in work design and operational organisation in the Arab region. Renowned companies, such as Siemens, Linde or Schaeffler already rely on the proven REFA expertise. You can also benefit from the support of our certified REFA consultants - both in the field of consultancy and in the field of vocational training. We are experts in organisational consulting, time management, production consulting and Lean Management - both nationally and internationally.
