DEWA reviews strategic plans
Authority aiming to be "sustainable world class utility"
Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) have met to discuss strategic plans for the next five years, as part of its strategy to become a world class utility. Fourteen business units from across DEWA have presented strategic plans for 2012-2016.
“DEWA has long been recognised for its excellence in the field of strategic planning and execution. It is the first organisation in the MENA region to have been inducted into the Hall of Fame – an elite group of international companies. This recognition comes as a result of our long commitment to the strategic planning, implementation of best practices, and commitment to corporate strategic principles to face our challenges and play our active role in the development of Dubai based on the five principles of the Strategy-Focused Organisation. This annual exercise has long served us in building the necessary focus each year around a set of operational goals and projects that leads to the successful delivery of our corporate strategy,” said HE Mohammed Al Tayer, DEWA CEO and MD.
“This year, we have built and focused our strategic projects around five main strategic programmes derived directly from our five key strategic themes on our strategy map: focusing on Corporate Sustainability, Demand Side Management, Energy Diversification and Operational Efficiency, Customer Delight and Brand Image and Organisation Capabilities and Resources. I have reviewed with my team of executives the various objectives and projects planned to serve these programmes and I am confident that once completed, these projects will lead to the successful delivery of our strategy to achieve our vision to become a sustainable world class utility,” HE Al Tayer adds.
DEWA’s five year strategic plan is updated every year, helping it to serve over 600,000 accounts across Dubai.
