    Date published: 1 October 2009
    Information Technology Industry Development Agency (ITIDA) announced the launch of eight new rounds of Advanced Management Program (RAMP) for managers of Egyptian IT companies.

    A total of 240 managers of IT companies will take part in the program, 30 trainees in each round. The program is undertaken by Regional IT Institute (RITI). ITIDA offers 85% of the program cost.
     
    Trainees are selected based on certain criteria like age, experience in the field, English language proficiency and education.

    The first phase RAMP was finalized mid 2008 through four successful rounds. 120 participants from 64 IT companies participated in the program.

    The program aims at helping managers acquire professional skills that can shape their characters, enabling them to develop their visions and share it with others. The program will also help them run their companies and motivate their staff more efficiently.

    In addition, the program provides participants with analysis of the best practices of international companies, a solid base of knowledge and the scientific basics of management tools.

    A number of professors and professional trainers specialized in different management fields offer the training. The 152-hour program consists of a number of training courses designed to face the current economic challenges.

    The program is based on the eight areas of strategic marketing, sales management, total quality management, leadership skills, creative thinking, problem solving, international and strategic trade, strategic design, strategic behavior and financial management. 
     
    ITIDA Deputy CEO Ms. Zeinab Zaki noted that due to the success of phase one and the importance of the program in building the skills of young leaderships, ITDIA decided to double the number of participants.

    Ms. Zaki added that such a program will have a positive impact on managers and companies, pointing out that ITIDA aims to qualify managers following international standards. These managers, she said, represent Egypt's main competitive advantage.

    According to Ms. Zaki, ITIDA's initiative is part of different activities related to building the managers' skills to raise their competitiveness and the capabilities required to develop and go on in a fast-changing global environment.
      
    A strategic agreement was signed between Ministry of Communications and Information Technology, represented by Information Technology Institute (ITI), and Regional Information Technology and Software Engineering Center (RITSEC), represented by RITI, in a bid to design and launch a capacity building program based on the latest techniques.

    The partnership also encompassed the launch of academic initiatives for meeting and dealing with the specific needs of all managerial levels of IT companies.  All programs are fully supported by ITIDA.

    RAMP goes in line with the general trend of the IT industry development strategy. The strategy is based on supporting and boosting public-private partnerships (PPP) as well as applying international quality standards on Egyptian IT products and services to raise exports. The third aspect of the strategy is to focus on human resource programs and initiatives for developing managerial skills.
