HEC Paris and King Faisal Specialist Hospital and Research Centre Conclude the ‘Keep the Lead’ Program

HEC Paris School of Management and King Faisal Specialist Hospital and Research Centre (KFSH&RC) in Saudi Arabia have successfully completed ‘Keep the Lead’, a custom-designed management training program targeted for the top 150 executives of the organization.
‘Keep the Lead’ program
Developed jointly by KFSH&RC in partnership with HEC Paris, the program’s ultimate goals were to promote the hospital’s culture of operational excellence, fostering a sense of commitment to the organization, and achieving better performance. Accordingly, it was built around three main areas: Strategy, Performance Management, and Leadership.The program also included two overlapping sub-themes: Change Management and Decision Making Excellence.

Following the completion of the final module of the program, a Project Challenge was organized, which also coincided with the distribution of the certificates to all its participants.
‘Keep the Lead’ program
The Project Challenge involved participants being invited to work individually on a project related to a problem in their work environment, complete with analysis and action plan using the learnings from the program.

A jury composed of members from HEC Paris and KFSH&RC assessed presentations from the authors of the 12 shortlisted papers in Riyadh and Jeddah on 14 December 2014. This was followed by a Q&A session from the jury and the audience. The quality of the presentations made it a difficult task to pick the top three; however, Dr Nezar Khalifah of KFSH&RC Riyadh was ranked first, with Rola Al Tawil and Dr Muntazar Bashir, both from KFSH&RC-Jeddah, ranked joint-second, and Jasmin Jawdat from KFSH&RC Riyadh coming third.
