The Asharqia Chamber Training Center is organizing a Scenario Planning Workshop scheduled to last for 3 days, from 8am -3pm, beginning on Saturday, May 16, 2009. The workshop entitled "Tools for Advanced Management" will be presented by Dr. Abdur-Rahaman Tawfeeq, the founder and president of the Occupational Information Center and advisor to the International Bank. The workshop will include a comprehensive definition of scenario planning and advanced techniques and tools that help administrative planners plan for future possibilities, future probabilities, and future preferences. Also included will be the seven steps for building a future scenario, things that must be avoided during scenario planning, important things that must be done in order to effect change while scenario planning, practical application methods that can be used by Arab and international foundations for scenario planning, and common challenges that face modern day planners.
The workshop will attempt to answer a number of questions such as: Should we wait for the world around us to suddenly change? Why look at conventional strategic planning as if it is ineffective because of problems associated with it? What should we do when we are uncertain? And when do we need scenario planning?

He is also the author of the intellectual model entitled "Levels of Understanding" in which he sought to combine Islamic thought with modern management ideas to analyze strategy.
