They are very supportive as bearers of positivity in our team.

Kellen Adevia: Despite the distance and the pandemic, we remain united as a team. We make sure that not even one from our team is left behind. We learn and grow together as we conduct our sales activities. 

What do you like most about your team?

Khesviny: We value and appreciate each other’s contribution whether we are doing research or making plans. Each member of the team does their fair share of workload and fully understands what their responsibilities are and where they fit in. Our team’s members are more productive when they are given support and access to the necessary resources. Our manager is a good and perfect leader to us. With her help, we are able to improve our relationships with our colleagues to reduce conflicts and build a more positive environment.

Thalia Amnesti Simanjutak: My colleagues are always giving useful insights and ready to help me since I am new in the team. They  create a safe space for us to give our opinions and cheer for members who are reaching milestones and sealing achievements. As a team, we encourage each other to continue growing and to perform at their best at all times.

Thalia: I can’t say that I’ve learned our team’s activities and objectives overnight. It took me a while to even close my first registration. Luckily, I belong to a team that never hesitates to share their knowledge, insights, and time. Now, we are in Q3, and I look forward to contributing more to the team and the company.

Kellen: Personally, I find adapting to my new work as my biggest challenge. But my team has been very encouraging and resourceful when it comes to guiding me since day one. I can always turn to them for advice and insights. Adjusting to my role also becomes easier because in our team,  everyone is welcome to express their opinions and ideas. It also helps that my manager demonstrates good leadership skills. 

Nurulain: We managed to get through another lockdown. We make sure our team is achieving progress and supporting each other. With this, we are able to improve our own sales activities while learning together.

TKI People Awards: Research Division bags the Team of the Quarter Award

September 8th, 2021 Posted by Awards, Research 0 thoughts on “TKI People Awards: Research Division bags the Team of the Quarter Award”

research division

The Research Division of The KPI Institute (TKI) has been named the Team of the Quarter for its exemplary performance in the first quarter of 2021.

The TKI People Awards series honors the employees and teams recognized by TKI for going above and beyond expectations, excelling as team players, and creating a tremendous impact on the company as it delivers research programs, training, and advisory services to organizations and professionals worldwide.

“We are the BRAINs, the core team, which develops the company’s products and services,” says Cristina Mihăiloaie, Business Unit Manager of the Research Division. The team is responsible for producing quantitative and qualitative research and publications on performance management and performance measurement systems.

Composed of subject matter experts and business research analysts, the Research Division ensures that the company’s courses are calibrated according to industry trends and demands. With their knowledge, skills, and leadership, TKI’s comprehensive KPI database continues to provide up-to-date and innovative content in order to help businesses measure their success.

How are they able to accomplish those things?

Let’s find out from some of the team’s members.

What are a few perks that make working in your team a great experience?

Cristina: Openness, honesty, and support allow us to make sure that at the end of the day, our output meets clients’ expectations.

Human Hardy: We are able to learn and acquire new sets of knowledge and skills in many industrial topics.

Aida Manea: I would say the feeling that you are being listened to and that you are also listening. The amazing thing that results from this is anyone can come up with ideas, and if they are good, they will be recognized and applied.

What advice would you give other teams in order for them to achieve the same success you now enjoy?

Daniela Vuta: Focus on individual study and continuous learning but also encouragement, collaboration, and feedback sharing among team members.

Silvana Badita: When dealing with difficult tasks, collaborating and communicating with team members can help you find the best solutions to your problem.

Aida: Step out of your comfort zone a little every day. Stay focused and strive for the best version of yourself.

Cristina: It does not matter how many times or how bad you fail. What matters is how you get out of tough situations as a team. It can break you and make you secretly hate each other, or it can contribute to learning and building trust among people.

Teamwork requires shared knowledge and work experiences. What would you say is the main thing you have learned as part of your team?

Silvana: You need to work together towards a shared goal. This way, you can improve productivity and bring better business results.

Agnes Ilyes: We can improve ourselves faster if we are helping, not competing, with each other.

Human: The importance of brainstorming. Ask whatever you need to ask, and you’ll be surprised by the knowledge and perspective that your colleagues have.

Cristina: It is not about what you as an individual knows that matters in a team, but what you can bring to complete the team. You may be very good at many things, but the team may require from your role just one skill. You need to deliver what is needed and in the format it is needed.

Launching our 1st grad & postgrad diploma course – the Executive Education Program experience

May 4th, 2021 Posted by Press release 0 thoughts on “Launching our 1st grad & postgrad diploma course – the Executive Education Program experience”

Promoting excellence and improving performance happens at all levels. We oftentimes focus on employees, managers, and heads of departments, but we mustn’t forget about the upper echelon – directors, and executives. They represent the starting point for an organization’s vision, mission, and overarching goals.executive

If we were to take a look at many companies, a large percentage of the reason they became and remained successful is their leadership, specifically, the people positioned at the highest ranks 

However, a number of organizations also failed precisely because the individuals at the helm did not know how to steer them in the proper direction, oftentimes swaying too much to one side or going completely off-course. 

Here at The KPI Institute, our belief is that no business should ever fail or steer off-course if it benefits from proper management. Many of our courses focus on ensuring mid-tier level or intermediate-level leaders receive the knowledge they need in order to stabilize, improve, or maximize the performance of their organization. With that said, we felt it was high time we also focused on a business’s zenith, namely its uppermost executives. 

The Executive Program in Strategy and Performance 

The Executive Program in Strategy and Performance is the most complex educational program in The KPI Institute’s portfolio.

It is designed for business leaders who are interested in strengthening their skills in strategic planning, performance measurement based on Key Performance Indicators, data analysis, and reporting, strategy execution in dynamic markets. 

The Executive Education Program is split into two parts: a postgraduate diploma course and a graduate certificate course.  

  • The Postgraduate Diploma in Strategy and Performance spans over the course of 3 semesters, or 18 months, and covers 8 specialized learning experiences. Once you’ve finished all your studies, you are required to put together a practitioner portfolio that will focus on 40 assignments. This course also awards you 280 CPD points, for your CPD development portfolio.

  • The Graduate Certificate in Strategy and Performance only lasts 2 semesters, over a period of 12 months, requiring its learners to complete 4 specialized courses and put together a practitioner portfolio that will focus on only 20 assignments. This course also awards you 140 CPD points, for your CPD development portfolio. 

Out of the 8 specialized learning experiences, 6 are mandatory, while 2 are elective. The 6 mandatory ones are Strategic Planning, Performance Measurement, Performance Management, Strategy Execution, Performance Management System Audit, and Employee Performance Management. 

The final two are up to preference. You can choose whichever two options you wish, out of the following: the Balanced Scorecard, Objectives and Key Results (OKRs), Innovation Management Framework, Data Analysis, Data Visualization, or Benchmarking. 

Admission process 

The admission process for Executive Education Program is straightforward and only has 4 steps: 

  1. You schedule an initial discussion with us, expressing your interest in this program 
  2. You submit an admission file, which will contain your letter of intent (200-500 word), your CV, and all diplomas that reflect your educational background 
  3. We will review your admission file 
  4. We will schedule an interview with you 

After the interview is concluded, we’ll look to submit a final answer on your application process in up to 3 days’ time. 

Participant profile 

This course is primarily aimed at mid-tier and high-level leaders, from sales managers, chief accountants, production supervisors, and facilities managers, to directors, presidents, vice-presidents, and CEOs.  

Our intention is to focus on business leaders who wish to better their ability to plan ahead and strategize for the future, based on present data. We cover all aspects related to business improvement, from strategy execution, data analysis, and KPI measurement, to systems thinking, project management, and performance reporting. 

Competency framework 

Each of the courses covered in this program is intended to help you expand your competencies and capabilities so that you will become an integrated strategy and performance executive. The core of our Executive Education Program courses focus on the following:  

  • The Certified Strategy and Business Planning Professional will augment your strategic planning capability, whilst improving your strategic thinking, stakeholders’ engagement, and communication competencies.

  • The Certified Agile Strategy Execution Professional will advance your strategy execution capability, whilst refining your systems thinking, project management, and leadership competencies.

  • The Certified KPI Professional will amplify your performance measurement capability, whilst developing your KPI selection, data collection, and data visualization competencies.

  • The Certified Performance Management Professional will elevate your performance improvement capability, whilst enhancing your data analysis, problem-solving, and decision-making competencies.

  • The Certified Employee Performance Management Professional will supplement and boost your knowledge on employee performance management capability, whilst progressing your employee performance planning, employee evaluation, and feedback sessions competencies.

  •  The Certified Performance Management Systems Auditor will evolve your Performance Management System maturity model based-assessment capability, whilst intensifying your examination, analytical thinking, and solutions design competencies.

Through the Executive Education Program, we aim to build a new generation of executives, one that is ready to surmount any business trials or obstacles, much like a seasoned general.

In the 21st century, it is unacceptable for a business leader to falter in the face of adversity when in this day and age, there are more tools and tricks available than ever before. 

At The KPI Institute, we believe that through knowledge, dedication, and hard work, any challenge can be overcome. Even though some hurdles are greater than others and may cause setbacks, many of the greatest success stories in history came from failure. 

It is high time we addressed the high rates of failure in strategy execution so often encountered in organizations. It is time you shape the future, by knowing exactly what needs to be done and how to generate changes in the strategy and performance management practices of your organization.

It is time to become the best version of your professional self that you can be.

Teodora Gorski – Managing Director, PM Expert, Consultant, and Facilitator

In today’s expert faculty member spotlight, we’re featuring one of our longest-standing members and facilitators, Teodora Gorski!teodora

Teodora holds two bachelor’s degrees, one in International Business Administration and the other in Law, alongside a Master’s Degree in Project Management and a Diploma in Entrepreneurship and Venture Creation.

Her professional knowledge is further strengthened by the numerous professionalization courses she has attended and certification titles she has earned:

  • The ATD Master Trainer Course and the Consulting Skills Certification;
  • The Romanian National Authority of Qualifications Trainer Accreditation and the HR Manager Certification;
  • The KPI Institute’s C-PI, C-KPI, C-EPM, or C-B courses.

She is currently in the process of obtaining her 9th certificate, as part of the GRI Sustainability Reporting Process Course, in the Netherlands.

Given her penchant for business administration, it was no coincidence that Teodora’s first professional undertaking was Vice President of AIESEC’s Sibiu branch – an international youth-run NGO, managing the branch’s financial team. Under her tutelage, AIESEC won the National Prize for Best Projects, received 3 funding grants, saw 75% growth, participated in 3 international conferences, and implemented 10 national projects.

That being said, much like juggling 2 bachelor’s degrees at the same time, Teodora decided to manage 2 organizations at the same time. During her time at AIESEC, she also handled the financial management and organizational development of Diamond SA, a fiber optic interconnection solutions company.

In 2013, she took a greater interest in the minutiae of managing performance, performance indicators, and data analysis, which lead her to join The KPI Institute’s team, as an Integrated Technology and Business Analyst. During her first year on-board, she documented and researched over 150 KPIs.

At the start of 2014, she took on a new role, as an Organizational Development Specialist, which solidified her HR-related acumen. By the time we reached October that year, Teodora became the Managing Director for the MENA region – which she is her current position, as a culmination of her efforts, prowess, and expertise.

As an educator, she has delivered over 120 courses and workshops in the United Arab Emirates, Oman, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Malaysia, Vietnam, Indonesia, the USA, Romania, Germany, and Slovakia, training over 1,500 attendees.

Given Mrs. Gorski’s eclectic professional background, it comes as no surprise that her courses revolved around a wide array of topics, from organizational performance management, employee performance management, and employee appraisal, to KPIs, the BSC, and strategy and leadership.

Up to this point, Teodora has provided advisory services and facilitated training sessions to the following clients:

  • The United Arab Emirates: Abu Dhabi Retirement Pensions Fund, Dubai Electricity, and Water Authority, Dubai Ambulance, Dubai Municipality, Balmer Lawrie, Boehringer Ingelheim, Emirates Nuclear Energy Corporation, Al Falah Holding, Lloyd Register

  • Bahrain: Ministry of Education
  • Oman: Oman LNG
  • Qatar: Abdudllah Abdulghani & Bros

Ahmed Alzahrani – Director, Faculty Member, and Facilitator

March 2nd, 2021 Posted by E-learning 0 thoughts on “Ahmed Alzahrani – Director, Faculty Member, and Facilitator”

Companies only stay competitive if they can refresh themselves somehow. Whether that means making a new strategy, creating a new product, developing new services, or hiring new blood, something has to breathe in fresh air.ahmed

For us at The KPI Institute, we went with the final option – we decided it was time to expand our team of facilitators, both internally and externally, ensuring we can handle the demand for online learning that surged last year. This article is the first of many to come, in which we give you a glimpse of our roster so that you know who our faculty members are when you join any of our courses.

Ahmed Alzahrani – EMBA, Assoc. CIPD, MPM, HRPM, CBP-HRM, CBP-TOT, PMP, C-EPMP, SHRM-SCP, C-KPI Practitioner

In today’s article, we’ll be spotlighting a member of our external faculty of collaborators.

A systems engineer bachelor (King Fahad University) and a business administration master (King Abdulaziz University), Ahmed began his specialization in HR management by undergoing the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development’s (CIPD) course, earning him the title of HR Practitioner.

However, his experience with management and KPIs began long before that, with his first professional forays, as a Quality Engineer Trainer at Siemens Ltd. and a Recruitment Manager at Saudi Binladin Group, where he amassed 11 years of experience in this role.

Once he began his studies, he became an HR Operations Manager, having held that position for 3 years, until he finished his master’s degree, which enabled him to advance as a Talent Acquisition Director in the same company, which is also his current position.

After picking up the mantle of Talent Acquisition Director, Ahmed’s foray into the world of HR unfolded in front of him, as over the course of 4 years, he attended over 60 HR-related courses.

Some of his most notable ones would be the following: Human Resources Project Manager – AAPM 2016, Master Project Manager – AAPM 2016, TOT – International Business Training Association (IBTA), HRM – International Business Training Association (IBTA), HR Practitioner – CIPD 2017, Certified KPI Professional – KPI Institute 2020, PMP – PMI 2020.

Having mastered his professional passion, it was only natural that Ahmed turned to teaching others the ways of his trade. As a result, he began facilitating courses and seminars on HR or employee performance-related topics. He has so far delivered over 30 courses with several providers, both on-site and online. Here are some of the most significant events he has either delivered or participated in:
