Uau, they managed to announce so effectively and with such a long notice period (15 Dec at 12:30), and so clear message that we all know who is included and who is not!
Now, they are only missing the detailed schedule for the celebrations events. Oh, but for that they still loads of time, 2 days, so relax and wait ;)
is officially holiday for all governments offices......
Pls refer the following link
My explanation to this constant failure, is that all senior management, including planning and consultancy organizations, ultimately somewhere up the hierarchic line, encounters a local who is the decision maker. The typical profile is the one who is not regular at his desk and will do the least possible, including thinking and deciding. This is the main cause of all delays, lack of professionalism, lack of effectiveness, huge waste and poor results seen across all sectors in Qatar. Government bodies being the worse performers as the local decider can usually be found starting at lower hierarchic levels.
Only in special cases when the decision is delegated to the executer, you see excellent results at all levels... those are very few exceptions but hopefully will increase with the pressure of 2022, inshalah ;)
Nic... so true.... its amazing that such simple things also remain undecided till the last minute.
And who would think about that here?! That would require strategic planning and here is more like last minute reactive approach!
last year, they made an announcement in Gulf Times.. wonder if they'll be doing the same this year..
hope this gonna announce b4 the closing of office hour 4 the weekend, so we can make our programs, right folks?
LOL at January... :P
Nic... lol... sorry for the miscommunication.. I meant they could have decided the holiday in January 2010 itself...:)
lol... how about the Asian Football Cup and the Qatar ExxonMobil Tennis Open, will they coordinate and communicate the necessary arrangements to the public, in February?
Nic...agree... this could very well be decided in January itself...:)
The usual Qatari Planning, Organization and Communication Skills on display (or not)!
