Throughout history, the strategic planning of an organization has been proven to be a necessity imposed by reality and experiments. Owing to the importance of strategic planning and its role in the formation and advancement of any organization, the General Iftaa` Department(GID) has decided to draw up a five-year strategic plan (2017-2021). Key elements and axes were drawn up in order to produce this plan in a carefully examined scientific manner. This is in order to advance the outputs of the Department and set goals amenable to execution, follow up and assessment.

 

This strategic plan is a guideline for the staff members to absorb strategic thinking as working methodology to be able to achieve the Department`s vision, message and objectives.
