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

March 17th, 2021 Posted by E-learning 0 thoughts on “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
  • The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia: King Fahad Specialist Hospital, Advanced Electronics Company, Takamol, Al Moosa Specialist Hospital, Al Kifah Holding, Tamweel Al Oula, HubTech, Al Quwa, Port State Control Authority, Saudi Information Technology Company, SATORP (Saudi Aramco Total Refining and Petrochemical)
  • Bahrain: Ministry of Education
  • Oman: Oman LNG
  • Qatar: Abdudllah Abdulghani & Bros
  • Brunei: Brunei Investment Authority
  • Malaysia: MCMC (Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission

As one of our most senior and experienced facilitators, Mrs. Gorski is in charge of delivering a broad selection of courses, as follows:

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:

  • KPIs in HR – King Abdulaziz University (Trainer)
  • HR Management – Princess Nora University (Trainer)
  • Advanced Skills in HR – Princess Nora University (Trainer)
  • KPIs in HR – Ministry of Health (Trainer)
  • Career Path and Succession Planning – Ministry of Health (Trainer)
  • Training Needs Analysis – Ministry of Health (Trainer)
  • HR Management – King Abdulaziz University (Trainer)
  • Job Analysis and Job Description – Ministry of Health (Trainer)
  • Work Consciously (Seminar) – King Fahd University of Petroleum & Minerals (Speaker).
  • Tips for Successful Employment (Seminar) – Effat University (Speaker).
  • Work Consciously (Seminar) – Princess Nora University (Speaker).

For The KPI Institute, Ahmed Alzahrani will be one of the faculty members facilitating our C-KPI Professional course that is held in Arabic.

When he is not being a miracle worker in HR, our proficient talent acquisition director is also a writer in his free time, being an active contributor to the Maaal electronic newspaper.


If you want to see Ahmed in practice AND learn more about KPIs & how they interact with your organization’s strategy, goals, as well as how to get buy-in from your employees, sign up for any of our C-KPI Arabic-held courses and get ready for a one-of-a-kind learning experience!

It’s time for literal FaceTime – Relaunching our on-site certification courses!

January 26th, 2021 Posted by E-learning 0 thoughts on “It’s time for literal FaceTime – Relaunching our on-site certification courses!”

Last year’s unfortunate turn of events certainly distanced us from one another, however, it did not manage to divide and conquer. Organizations around the globe managed to improvise, adapt, and overcome, turning a new page in their book.on-site courses

Some channeled their energy into the online environment, either creating e-shops or simply delivering their services through the Internet. Others invested in delivery services and partnerships, ensuring their products reach consumers anywhere they may be.

For us, at The KPI Institute, this meant completely rehauling the way we deliver courses. We focused on building new foundations, new processes, new tasks, goals, and objectives. The end result was a roaring success, as even with the outside world being battered, people in the safety of their abode joined our courses left, right, and center.

In 2020, we registered some of the highest numbers attendance-wise, a fact for which we are grateful to our amazing participants and partners, who continued to focus on their professional development with even more poise and focus.

We’re back in (on-site) business!

However, there’s still something missing. We miss that genuine human connection you get with someone when you can work on a project face to face. There’s nothing like the feeling of joy you get when you’re together with a group of people who share your values, passion, drive, and interests. Therefore, in 2021, we’re relaunching our face-to-face, on-site certification courses, in Malaysia only, for the moment.

This decision came as a result of Malaysia experiencing less duress under the COVID-19 pandemic and relaxing its regulatory measures, allowing for greater engagement and interaction between individuals.

That being said, it goes without saying that we’ll take all the precautionary measures we have to for each course we organize, in order to ensure our participants are kept in utmost safety. When you join a TKI course, you have nothing to worry for, as we will take care of all aspects that pertain to personal safety and health.

So, without further ado, here’s the list of certification courses you will be able to sign up for:

  • Certified KPI Professional and Practitioner (CPD eligible)
  • Certified Strategy and Business Planning Professional (CPD eligible)
  • Certified Balanced Scorecard Management System Professional
  • Certified OKR Professional (CPD eligible)
  • Certified Performance Management Professional (CPD eligible)
  • Certified Employee Performance Management Professional (CPD eligible)
  • Certified Innovation Performance Professional
  • Certified Agile Strategy Execution Professional
  • Certified Data Analysis Professional (CPD eligible)
  • Certified Data Visualization Professional (CPD eligible)
  • Certified Benchmarking Professional (CPD eligible)
  • Certified Supplier Performance Professional
  • Certified Performance Audit Professional (CPD eligible)

All of these Malaysia-based courses are 100% HRDF-deductible! Furthermore, by completing many of our courses, you will be able to earn 40 CPD credits, for your CPD record, per course!

Our face to face, on-site courses were always vibrant and full of energy. The level of emotion, passion, and dedication that people exhibited was wonderful. We’re hyped for this relaunch, and we hope you’ll be as well, bringing the same degree of enthusiasm and spirit that we know and love to see from every single one of you!

Goodbye 2020, Hello 2021! – The TKI Professional Certification Calendar

December 10th, 2020 Posted by E-learning 0 thoughts on “Goodbye 2020, Hello 2021! – The TKI Professional Certification Calendar”

2020 was a wild ride. It was probably, barring 2008, the most rollercoaster year in the recent 20 years. Most organizations had to completely overhaul and rethink their strategies, operations, corporate culture, management style, logistics, and the way they interact with employees and customers alike. In recent history, this has been one of the most uniquely-challenging years for businesses and institutions.2021 training calendar

Even for us, at The KPI Institute, 2020 proved to be quite an interesting experience, as we revamped our entire course offer, from the face-to-face format, to the live online format. However, this turned out to be a roaring success, given that we’ve had to organize additional sessions upon the already-planned ones, as participants kept coming in droves. This December alone we’ve scheduled over 4 extra sessions, on top of the 4 we already had planned!

Taking performance to a new level

In addition to all of this, we have added three new courses to our list of certifications – the Certified Agile Strategy Execution Professional, the Certified Strategy Development & Execution Professional, and the Certified Governance and Compliance Audit Professional.

We believe these new certifications are an exciting excursion into the world of auditing, governance, strategy crafting, and agile execution. While they are aimed primarily at advanced knowledge users, those who may not be the most proficient on these topics can still find valuable information, as we’ll look to facilitate an in-depth coverage of these subjects.

The KPI Institute’s Live Online Courses – Performance in numbers

November 9th, 2020 Posted by E-learning 0 thoughts on “The KPI Institute’s Live Online Courses – Performance in numbers”

Starting with the middle of April, we completely revamped our courses and certifications, moving all of them into the online environment. This change brought just as many challenges, as it did opportunities.courses

On the one hand, we had to rethink our course delivery, how we interacted with attendees, what format was the best to ensure each learning experience matches the same level of information as our former, face-to-face courses.

On the other hand, our course output increased in volume, as we were able to dish out many more editions than we previously did, since organizing an online learning experience is more time- and resource-effective than a face-to-face one.

As of right now, all of our certifications can be completed in the Live Online format, and we even managed to develop new ones, such as the Certified Innovation Professional course.

So, how does The KPI Institute look in numbers? Well, since we first began delivering Live Online courses, 6 months ago, we have managed to:

  • Organize 65 editions, which is roughly equivalent to almost 11 certification sessions per month
  • Enlist a little under 1,000 participants (950, to be more specific)

Our most sought-after course is, as most people would guess, the Certified KPI Professional, with 18 editions.

Moreover, we have hosted 10 courses in Arabic and 2 in French. In addition to this, one interesting little tidbit is the fact that at the start of our Live Online experience, when most people worked from home, the average attendee tuned in for our morning courses. Ever since restrictions and regulations have eased around the globe in the past months, and many more people have begun working from their offices again, we’ve seen a shift in attendance, whereby most of our sessions now occur in the afternoon.

This comes as a big step up in performance for us, given that in the past years, we usually managed to only organize around 5-6 editions per month, due to the logistics of hosting face-to-face events. Now, unchained from the burden of logistics, we are now able to better service all those in need of knowledge and information.

As 2020 is slowly coming to a close, we’re not stopping the hype train whatsoever. This is just the beginning for us. With learning sessions happening both in the morning, afternoon, and new courses in the making, The KPI Institute is ready to take 2021 by storm.
