The Book Summary Review which takes place every three months, assigned three books to the participants of the Promising Leaders Programme and the Government Leaders Programme which are part of MBRPLD.

They then had the opportunity to discuss and review the books with an audience at a book session without any condition imposed by an instructor or a teacher.

Adel Al Shared, Director of MBRPLD, said, “Participants have the opportunity to generate new ideas and conduct discussions to further enrich and explore these ideas.”

He said, “The response from the candidates has been incredible and I look forward to more instructive, intellectually stimulating book reading sessions in the coming months on a regular basis.”

The three assigned books included ‘Good To Great: Why Some Companies Make the Leap’ and 'Others Don’t' by Jim Collins, ‘Emotional Intelligence’ by Daniel Goleman and ‘Blue Ocean Strategy’ by W. Chan Kim and Ren Mauborgne.
