Dubai's Roads and Transport Authority (RTA
) has announced plans to implement corporate agility across the transport body in 2021-2022.
Unveiling a roadmap for implementing corporate agility, Mattar Mohammed Al Tayer, Director-General, Chairman of the Board of Executive Directors of the RTA, said: "Scaling up the corporate agility of public entities and organisations had become an urgent priority. The accelerated changes brought by the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic had forced governments and organisations to adopt an agile management approach to ensure a seamless flow of business operations during emergencies."
He was speaking at the opening session of RTA’s Agility Scaleup Innovation Lab held over two days in the presence of senior officials.
Al Tayer pointed out that developing an effective corporate agility approach had become an essential ingredient for coping with future trends, continuity of business, sustainability of growth and performance excellence.
"RTA embraced the journey to be agile since its inception in 2005 with a clear vision as well as a flexible-dynamic organization structure design based on a global corporate model adopted by global companies such as General Electric," he added.
According to him, RTA’s organisation model was further enhanced by a network of cross-functional teams and committees, to boost collaboration and enhance quality.
"Embracing the corporate agility approach had enabled RTA to deliver mega and complex projects on time such as the Dubai Metro Project, which was opened as promised on 09/09/2009, and the Dubai Water Canal Project, which was completed despite all the complex challenges; like the need for the Canal to pass through Sheikh Zayed Road, and other main roads, in an area with established infrastructure and massive existing network of utility lines," noted Al Tayer.
"Projects delivered also include Route 2020 for the extension of the Dubai Metro Red Line to the site of Expo. The delivery of these projects contributed to the rapid development of Dubai's infrastructure, especially those related to the economy, tourism, as well as land and property developments," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
