The paper 'The Recent Human Resource Development Practices in the UAE" is a good example of a management case study. Past literature indicates that leadership performance and human resource development are interdependent. Most organizations globally depend on human resources to develop structures used to run the organizations including rules and regulations. There are several structural changes that have taken place in the United Arab Emirates since 1971 when they became an independent state. There have been several organizational changes steered by the government of UAE aiming at restructuring the way companies carry out their daily activities to meet the global standards due to competition in the world. The United Arab Emirates is one of the leading growing economies in the world and hence, to meet international standards, it has been forced to structure most of her organizations.
One of the organizational change that involves human resource in the UAE that has laid down long term strategies to meet future changes as a developing nation is policing. Due to arising challenges in police organizations due to rampant terrorist activities, the organization has identified the challenges and is currently strategizing on how to respond to emergencies within the shortest time possible in UAE.
In the past few years, the police organization has tried as much as possible to re-structure the entire organization so that they get the right system and the right people within the sector to meet the new challenges (Nankervis, 2008, p. 43). UAE being an Arab state has its way of carrying out activities according to sharia law. It is common knowledge that the culture of the people determines how people behave and react to daily activities.
Most of the cultures throughout the world are known to resist change. In the case of UAE, though in the first phases of new strategies implementation people refused some strategies, they have currently adopted the new strategies to meet the international standards. This has been achieved in UAE as a result of a combination of economic circumstances, government policies as well as the role of organizations as mediating structures.
